Take a dip at these hotel pools in Toronto

Toronto is home to plenty of public swimming pools, but private hotel pools are the preferred choice for visitors and locals who are looking to beat the heat in style. Check in for a refreshing dip at these hotel pools.

Thompson Toronto Hotel

1
550 Wellington St W, Toronto, ON M5V 2V4

This trendy hotel chain made a serious splash when it opened its first Canadian outpost in Toronto back in 2010. Today, ultra hip King West crowds still clamour for invites to the exclusive 16th floor rooftop pool and lounge — the VIP hideaway features a stunning infinity pool and luxurious cabanas for lounging. The sky-high retreat also offers excellent cocktails and jaw-dropping 360-degree views of the city skyline and Lake Ontario. The pool is open during the summer seasons but you better start making some connections because this exclusive swimming spot is reserved for hotel guests and lounge members.

Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel

2
123 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON M5H 2M9

You can’t beat the central location of this downtown hotel, but you’ll have a hard time leaving the premises once you’ve discovered the third-floor pool, Splash@Sheraton. Toronto’s largest indoor/outdoor heated pool features a unique glass wall that separates the indoor swimming pool from the open-air section. The pool is open daily all year-round (which means you can swim outdoors even during a snowstorm) from 7am to 10pm. Not a guest at the hotel? Day passes are available for $35 per day per person or you can buy a family pass (includes admission for two adults and one child) for $80.

Four Seasons Hotel Toronto

3
60 Yorkville Ave, Toronto, ON M4W 0A4

Floor-to-ceiling windows offer impressive views of the city from this indoor pool located on the ninth floor of the swanky Four Seasons Hotel in Yorkville. The tranquil relaxation pool has a distinct Zen-like quality and is surrounded by plush lounge chairs and a warm Jacuzzi tub. Access is limited to hotel guests but you can also enjoy the pool if you book a massage or facial appointment at the Four Seasons Spa.

CHELSEA HOTEL, TORONTO

4
33 Gerrard Street West, Toronto, ON M5G 1Z4

Little ones will love the water-park feel at this family-oriented hotel downtown. The heated indoor pool is a great spot to splash around but the 130-foot waterslide is definitely the main attraction. The four-storey corkscrew slide takes kids (and grownups) on a roundabout ride that loops outside the hotel walls. If you’d prefer to take a dunk without the kids in tow, head up to Deck 27 — the heated adult-only indoor pool offers a more tranquil vibe, panoramic views of the skyline and access to an outdoor sundeck.

Shangri-La Hotel Toronto

5
180 University Avenue, Toronto, ON M5H 0A2

You’ll find a luxurious oasis in the heart of downtown on the fifth floor of Toronto’s upscale Shangri-La Hotel. The spa-like amenities include a 64-foot pool as well as an infrared sauna and Jacuzzi. Individual poolside cabanas are kept private with sheer white curtains.

Hyatt Regency Toronto

6
370 King St W, Toronto, ON M5V 1J9

Head to the centrally located Hyatt Regency hotel during the summer months to enjoy spectacular views of the CN Tower. Sun worshippers can spend the day relaxing on cushioned lounge chairs and order a variety of drinks and snacks off the room service menu. Hotel guests are always welcome on the sundeck while non-guests can visit on Thursdays to Sundays with a $39 day pass — the price includes all-day pool access and one drink.
