By Kerry Gallagher | July 23, 2019 | Lifestyle

When summer in the city reaches top temperatures there’s no better way to cool off than with a dip in the pool, and we know just the places so you can do it in style. Cool off at these luxe, rooftop pools in Boston.


The Colonnade Hotel

Sip lemonade at the Colonnade (or any drink for that matter) at their rooftop pool. Twelve stories above the pavement is a poolside paradise equipped with food, yoga classes and live music on Tuesdays and Thursdays. And if you want a more private experience, then consider renting one of their luxurious cabanas to beat the heat in. Cabanas starting at $250, The Colonnade Hotel, 120 Huntington Ave.,

Revere Hotel

This hotel’s rooftop oasis is a highly revered place to spend the summer. The Revere Hotel pulls out all the stops with its heated pool, poolside lounge and rentable cabanas. Don’t forget to order some of their New England-inspired food and drinks while you’re soaking up the sun. Cabanas starting at $200, Revere Hotel, 200 Stuart St.,

Royal Sonesta

At the Royal Sonesta you’ll be living large with one of the biggest pools in the Boston area. This rooftop pool is surrounded by sliding glass walls making it a serene getaway perfect for taking a relaxing dip or swimming a few laps. It’s also salt-based, making it chlorine free. Pool available to guests only, Royal Sonesta Boston, 40 Edwin H Land Blvrd, Cambridge,

The Sheraton

Although this pool is technically indoors, you’ll be reeling at its retractable roof. The Sheraton Hotel offers you a swimmingly good time on its rooftop pool, accompanied by a glass ceiling and an outdoor patio too. Pool available to guests only, Sheraton Boston Hotel, 39 Dalton St., Boston,

Hotel Indigo Boston

So it’s not quite in Boston and it’s not quite on a roof, but nevertheless the Hotel Indigo pool is a perfect escape. With just a short ride over to Newton, it’ll be like your own mini vacation. Kick back in a cabana or go for a swim, but no matter what you do you’ll find this paradise a welcome change from the sweltering city heat.
