Summer in the city can become tremendously hot and just because you are not along the beach does not mean you need to withstand the heat and not make the most out of it. The heat is the best excuse for reaching out to your local hotels with swimming pools. Grab some friends, go for a drink and enjoy cooling off in a rooftop swimming pool with an amazing view! Many hotels offer swimming for non-hotels guests and some hotel swimming pools feature innovation like heating or underwater sound systems if the stunning rooftop view is not good enough.
