Pool Season is Underway
"TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE..." begins the question from Faith, of Swann Street, Washington, D.C. "Are there any hotel pools, preferably outdoor, that have a daily rate? Two girlfriends and I would love to spend Memorial day by the pool drinking lovely cocktails. The several that I've called only have long-term memberships. Please advise."
We feel your pain, Faith. I called around and found that most hotels are limiting pool use to guests-only. There are exceptions -- the Washington Plaza Hotel sells pool memberships to the public, for example, but those sell out every year.
The only outdoor pool I found in the District that's open to the public is at the Marriott Wardman Park, where you can pay $10 to swim between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m.
On a related note, five of D.C.'s outdoor pools are set to open their doors for the summer on Saturday at noon: Anacostia, Francis, Georgetown, Kenilworth Parkside and Oxon Run. Too bad they frown on poolside cocktails.
Admission is free to residents with an ID. Non-residents pay $7 for adults, $4 for children 6 to 17 and $3 for kids under 6.
