Mandarin Oriental Hotel New York


Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

A glorious pool on the 36th floor of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel; two sides of glass with views of the Hudson - in a word, breath taking. But it is HOT - TOOOO hot, and they're proud of it...
The pool is only half as wide as a normal 25 yard pool. Two lanes are set in the tiles on the bottom but there are no lane lines. There wasn’t a temperature reading displayed in the pool, but I would guess it was 80º – 82ºF (27º - 28ºC). The pool was very clean, well maintained, and had nice chemical levels (i.e., I didn’t wreak of chlorine all day). Definitely highly recommended, but you wouldn’t want to have to share it with more than one person. Nice towels, water bottles, and fruit on the pool deck! But $800 plus a night might not be the hotel of choice for many people. I did, however, have a great sleep before my swim. The pool is open from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm. [March, 2014]
