As the temperature rises, so does the allure of a hotel with an outdoor pool. Whether your idea of R&R is laying poolside with a book (and pińa colada in hand) or getting your yoga on in the water, the following Vancouver hotels are equipped with pools that will keep you cool all summer long.
For West Coast chill vibe with a front row view to the harbor and the mountains, a visit to the Fairmont Waterfront is in order. Souped up with a heated outdoor pool, hot tub, and whirlpool – relax and soothe your muscles post-dip in the serene eucalyptus steam room.
Up on the third floor, this rooftop pool is open 5am-10pm daily throughout the summer.
