If you’re looking for a relaxing swim, you’re in luck: The Peninsula New York houses a glass-enclosed rooftop pool, ideal for an evening dip amid the New York skyline. The 42-foot-long pool ranges from three-and-a-half to five-and-a-half feet in depth and is kept at a toasty 82 F.
The pool offers more of a country-club type of atmosphere than most in the Big Apple. Chaise lounges with plush towels and pillows surround the pool, and nearby you’ll also find coffee and tea, fresh fruit, water, reading materials, robes and fun water toys. High up on the 22nd floor of The Peninsula New York, the pool affords a beautiful view overlooking Fifth Avenue; you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world. In the summer, there’s also a sun deck, which you won’t find at other New York hotels. So be sure to take advantage of that and soak up some rays.
If you don’t want to change for dinner, no sweat: The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star New York hotel offers poolside dining. Swimming lessons and aerobics classes are also available, and there’s a whirlpool if you want to unwind. The pool is open daily from 5:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
