With temperatures in the sweltering range, plunging into a shimmery blue pool is currently the prevailing fantasy. Sure, NYC has plenty of swanky hotel options that can run your wallet dry—but a few local spots also offer day passes for non-hotel guests.
Soak up the sunshine with a pool day pass at this hotel’s 5,000-square-foot rooftop. You’ll get lounge seating, a daybed or cabana (depending on the tier you opt for), and poolside service with food and drinks. Plus, if you bring your phone or laptop, you can work from the comfort of your own chair—striking the perfect balance between leisure and productivity.
