13 Hotel Pools That Don’t Require Checking In

Over the weekend, I attended a bachelorette party in New Orleans. We rented a house on Airbnb, but the bride also wanted to spend a day lounging by a pool. Since the house didn’t have one, I volunteered to find us a hotel pool that was open to the public. Much to my dismay, I couldn’t find a single fabulous place that allowed non-guest pool access. While the majority of amazing hotels do require that you have a key, a recent Travel + Leisure article highlights 13 that don’t require you to check in to swim laps. Renting a house in New York, Boston, Chicago, Vegas, San Francisco, Austin, L.A., or Florida for a bachelorette event? Tell your bride she’s welcome!
