So there’s no pool at your hotel; no need to get all hot and bothered. The Country Club (p. 28) provides daily public access ($10 Mon.-Wed.; $15 Thur.-Sun.), along with poolside dining. Spend $20 on food or drinks at the Ace Hotel‘ s (p. 63) rooftop restaurant and wade on in; $30 secures a place poolside Sundays at the W French Quarter (p. 63) and goes toward your food/beverage tab. At Le Meridien (p. 63) you can suit up and sip a complimentary cocktail for just $15 (Sat.-Sun.) or splurge on a cabana ($350). Splashy cabana rentals ($175-$350) are also offered daily at the Roosevelt Hotel (p. 63), complete with an attendant, stocked cooler and fruit plate.
