SLS Hotel

Hit a high note with the Altitude Pool at this Starwood hotel. Enjoy food by world-famous chef Jose Andres and on weekends during spring and summer, a live DJ spins beats from 2–6 p.m. Reserve a cabana with mini fridges, DVD players and televisions.


Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel

Relax at the old Hollywood Tropicana club at the rooftop pool. The hotel itself dates from the late 1920s; Charlie Chaplin and Marilyn Monroe once sipped cocktails near the pool and so can you.

The London West Hollywood

Take in views of Beverly Hills and even the Getty Center from this rooftop pool. Enjoy the poolside concierge during the day and stay around until dusk for the firepits and new Rooftop West Restaurant and Bar.


Andaz Hollywood

Find a chair in the sunshine and enjoy views of the Hollywood Hills and the Pacific Ocean and snacks at The Sundeck from the highest rooftop pool in LA.

The Standard Hotel, Downtown LA

Go for a swim in the heated rooftop pool before sliding over to the Biergarten for a brew and soft pretzel under the Californian sun. At night, the space has a dance club feel with DJs spinning the hottest music.

Over the weekend, my cousin and I took a quick trip to Atlanta and stayed at Hotel Colee in Buckhead, a new Marriott Autograph Hotel. We checked into the hotel around 8 p.m. and everyone was nice; check-in was a breeze.
