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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 Notes

There are two outdoor swimming pools visible in the Google Maps Satellite View photograph of this site; this listing is for the pool closer to Microsoft Theater. The other pool is at the Ritz-Carlton, which is the subject of a separate listing.
The pool is in the shape of two 40-foot long boxes placed end-to-end, but slightly offset, which reduces the straight-line width of the pool by about five feet.
It also has staircase entries across the width of the pool at both ends that reduce the "swimmable" length by two or three feet at each end.

Facility Reviews

This is a rooftop pool. I'm not sure exactly how long it is. I think the “swimmable” length is about 25 yards or so. On both ends of the pool there are stairs to walk into the pool. When I first got in I thought it was going to be super irritating because how do you do flip turns with stairs? But it was way easier to swim in than I expected; I just flipped and aimed to push off on third stair on each side. It was about 82ºF or so.
