Here in Los Angeles, pools are an art form, and the hotels on this list are going way beyond swimming laps. With L.A.'s perpetual sunshine and mild year-round climate, swimming pools are attractive destinations no matter when you visit. You need to be a hotel guest if you want to take a dip in many of these pools, but some welcome non-guests who just want to enjoy the atmosphere. Call ahead for details and Locals Only staycation specials.
