San Diegan’s love their rooftops. So it should come as no surprise that many downtown hotels, lacking in horizontal space, have gone vertical and placed their pools on the roof. Those looking for an urban resort pool experience should consider the following rooftop pools:
Relax under the sun at the Hotel Solamar Rooftop Pool
There’s nothing better than a tanning session alongside a great pool – especially when there’s a bar just steps away! Solamar’s pool deck features a relaxed vibe, comfortable lounges and, for those who want to step it up – private cabanas with bottle service. Bottle service not an option? You’re in luck! LoungeSix is just steps away from the pool area and features delicious hand-crafted cocktails and small bite plates.
Pool hours: 7:00 AM to 9:00 PM daily.
Enjoy the view from the rooftop pool above the Andaz San Diego
With gorgeous city views and decadent private cabanas, the Andaz’s rooftop pool is definitely an experience to be remembered! Cabanas have flat screen TVs, offer bottle service – and you can even have a spa treatment in one. For a truly luxurious poolside stay, book an overnight stay in their Cabana Suite which features a spiral staircase to its own private cabana on the pool deck!
Pool hours: 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM daily.
Cool off and mingle at the Palomar Pool and Lounge
Palomar’s 4th floor SummerSalt Rooftop Pool and Lounge is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy an afternoon of flavorful food and skillfully crafted cocktails. Whether you’re in a private cabana, posted up at the bar or soaking in the pool, the chill vibe of the Palomar’s pool deck will surely warm your soul.
Pool hours: 12:00 PM to 8:00 PM.
This rooftop pool rocks! (Sorry, just had to)
Best known for its Intervention Sunday pool parties during the Summer, the Hard Rock Hotel’s pool is actually surprisingly small. But what the pool lacks in size is absolutely made up for in Rock & Roll! Set above the Gaslamp Quarter, Hard Rock’s “urban garden oasis” features upscale cabanas and lounges with easy access to Float Bar for all your liquid refreshment needs.
Pool hours: 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM
Get a good workout and then relax at the Westgate Hotel’s rooftop pool
This rooftop pool is dedicated to your health, mind and body wellbeing. Opening in 2013, the remodeled terrace at the Westgate Hotel will feature an Olympic-sized lap pool, a relaxing lounge area with a fire pit and jacuzzi, and outdoor fitness and training stations.
