5 New York City Hotel Pools for Families to Love

When you visit a big city where space is at a premium, it can be difficult to find a hotel with a pool. Nowhere is that truer than in New York City, where hotels are more likely to offer guests access to a nearby health club with a pool than have one on the premises.

Here's a list of kid-friendly New York City hotels where your family won't have to leave the building to have a splashing good time.

Midtown West: A good choice for families with tighter budgets, The Travel Inn has 160 decently-sized rooms that come with flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and microwaves.

For summer visits, the best amenity is definitely the outdoor pool, which offers a place to beat the sweltering New York heat. Another plus: on-site indoor parking at discounted rates.

Located: 515 W 42nd St., (212) 695-7171

Tribeca: This is a good luxury choice if you're in the city with hip teens. The arty, elegant Greenwich Hotel has an ultracool address in Tribeca. The hotel has a cultured vibe and a zen indoor pool that can be a relaxing, if not super exciting, place to chill out after a day of sightseeing. 

Located: 377 Greenwich St., (212) 941-8900

Mandarin Oriental

Midtown West: Talk about a great location. This luxury hotel has a fabulous address at the epicenter of the city, at the southwest corner of Central Park. On the 35th floor of the plush Mandarin Oriental, the 75-foot three-lane lap pool comes with a view, thanks to enormous floor-to-ceiling windows that offer sweeping vistas across the city skyline. It's good for a workout swim, but kids will probably find it too subdued since the pool is part of the hotel's spa complex.

Located: 80 Columbus Circle, (212) 805-8800
