SLS Hotel, Beverly Hills
Few pools in LA are as stylish as the SLS’s. If you’re looking to see and be seen, this rooftop oasis near the Beverly Center is for you. There are rentable cabanas on hand, a drinks and snacks menu from José Andrés, and views from Downtown to the coast. Plus, who knows what celeb might be splashing around next to you.
Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows
With the Fairmont, you can be right next to the beach without having to actually be at the beach. If the sea breeze doesn’t have you sold, this pool is surrounded by palms, quaint bungalows, and a poolside bar that’s the perfect cap to a day spent soaking up the sun. So while your friends are fighting a family of four from Fontana for a three-by-three spot of sand to stake their beach blanket on, you’ll be relaxing atop an inflatable flamingo floatee (or would you prefer the unicorn).
The LINE Los Angeles
The Standard Hollywood
The first perk of The Standard Hollywood is its adult-only rule. That’s right, your no-children-by-the-pool dreams have come true. While you’re enjoying your kidless bliss, you’ll get the best people-watching this side of the 101, ping pong, and globally inspired bites by Croft Alley.
Freehand Los Angeles
A great pool you don’t have to leave the Valley for? Tangerine has it. It’s low-key, retro chic, and you probably won’t have to worry about being caught in the middle of a pool party that ends with a Frosé spilled on you.
