Best Hotel Pools in Austin

1
W Hotel Austin

W Hotel Austin

The fourth-floor pool is just one of the amenities that draws guests to this hip, downtown hotel. But non-guests can experience it, too: Day passes are available seasonally, and clients of the W's Away Spa also get access. The modern hotel features 251 rooms, each with picture-perfect views of the skyline. Escape your room's Sonoro sound system for company in the Living Room bar downstairs, where every weekend a DJ sets up in the Records Room and takes use of the space's 8,000 vinyl records.

Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort & Spa

Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort & Spa

About 25 miles from downtown Austin, the family-friendly Hyatt resort is known for its Crooked River pool area. It features, among other things, a kid-magnet water slide and a crowd-pleasing, 1,000-foot lazy river. When you need a break, have drinks and snacks served at your poolside lounge chair.

Travaasa Austin

You can have all kinds of experiences at this Hill Country resort, from learning to salsa dance to going horseback riding, but when you're ready to relax, grab a spot to lounge around the saline infinity pool. If you're not staying at Travaasa, you can still enjoy the pool if you book a day package.

Hotel Saint Cecilia

Hotel Saint Cecilia

Rock ’n’ roll is one of the inspirations behind the décor and mood at this small boutique hotel, and you may feel like a rock star yourself at the heated, 24-hour lap pool. You can indulge in poolside dining or even settle inside a poolside bungalow. Opened in 2008, every room has a turntable, and you can borrow albums from the lobby. It also boasts a certain celebrity cachet; recent guests include Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews, and the Foo Fighters—the latter of whom recorded their latest EP on site while they were in town for Austin City Limits.

Four Seasons Austin

Four Seasons Austin

This downtown oasis has hosted Austin's most notable visitors, from the Dalai Lama to Sally Field. Like most of the properties in the Four Seasons family, it boasts a heated, saltwater pool and a reputation for great poolside pampering. Taking a cue from its locale, however, public spaces are distinctly Southwestern (hide-covered sofas, native limestone, and leather chairs). Perhaps the hotel’s best asset is its prime location: unobstructed views over Lady Bird Lake, and close proximity to downtown businesses and nightlife.
