Winter is great in the first few weeks after the cold weather had settled in and the first snowflakes had just popped-out, but in after two months, the snowy city will look like a mud pile and a lot of people start dreamingof the sunny beaches of the Caribbean. But before you can fly to those sunny beaches, buy a full-day ticket for an indoor warm pool.
Le Parker Meridien
Far away from Caribbean there is a secluded warm water pool right in the heart of New York. At a superior floor, surrounded by glass walls, you can enjoy a day at the pool and a customized facial at the local hidden Moonshine SPA. A canary in a golden cage will sing to you all the time to enhance the Caribbean-like experience.
Feel the Oriental blossom in the heart of New York at the 36th floor. The pool is accessible if you buy a full-day SPA ticket, but swimming in the sun-lighted pool will take the cold of the winter off your shoulders, To make the most out of your day, try the special multicolored shower, which applies different pressures to mimic a tropical rain.
A day at this pool is only $25 and you will find yourself in the most secure place in the city, as the pool is located in the 1922 Federal Reserve Bank Building.
The glass rooftop offers a complete panorama upon the Boston’s skyscrapers and the entire pool design mimics a pavilion. At the second floor of the building, in the Governor’s Room you can admire an exhibit of old maps.
Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia
This hotel’s indoor pool experience is made to make one forget about the chilling cold outside. A cozy temperature of 84F is permanently maintained and the palms surrounding the pool, along with the lounge chairs will bring the holiday feel.
Ladies who wish to gossip about their romantic escape in Hawaii, can buy a Kissed by the Sun facial which offers the perfect glow of a tanned skin.
Fairmont Washington Georgetown, D.C.
The pool belongs to the SPA & fitness center and can be accessed by non-guests. If you wish to bring your children you must call first.
Apart from those technical details, the pool is located in the Foggy-Bottom hotel, which is the favorite residence for many celebrities and politicians.
The hotel was the background of a few scenes from the movie “Enemy of the State”. Beyond the celebrity touch, you can find saunas and a jacuzzi at the Balance Fitness center.
