Searching for the perfect pool to hang by this Summer in DFW? From rooftop pools to resort pools, from downtown Dallas to Las Colinas, we have got you covered! So grab your bikini and get ready to bask in the sun with a cocktail in hand. Here's #TeamLoveList's favorite pools in the Big D!

1. The Adolphus Hotel

A Dallas classic and one of our personal faves is the Adolphus, located right in the heart of downtown Dallas. Head 14 stories up and stop by the bar to grab a cocktail or glass of wine. You can also rent a cabana or enjoy the sunshine and pool deck with an array of light bites and seasonal fare served all day poolside!

2. Rosewood Mansion

The 25-meter, Mediterranean-inspired resort-style pool at the iconic Texas hotel is one of the highlights of your stay at the Rosewood Mansion. Order your favorite bites and cocktails poolside to complete the experience. It's the perfect place to enjoy a little ceviche or a refreshing lemon sorbet. It's temperature-controlled, too, so you can take a dip no matter the season.

3. The Thompson Hotel

Another one of our favorites downtown is the Thompson Hotel! You may have heard of the super glam Catbird, their rooftop bar which sits on top of their pool, which is totally a Dallas hotspot. But their pool is just as glam, once you dive in you are literally surrounded by all of the tall buildings in downtown Dallas. If the city scene is for you, then this is your spot.

4. HALL Arts Hotel

Right in the heart of the Arts District you'll find HALL Arts Hotel. It's beautifully decked out with art installations, live music and a cocktail bar and restaurant on the first floor. Hop on the elevator and head to the roof for a rooftop view looking into downtown Dallas. Plus they have a rooftop bar and restaurant, where you can order poolside hummus or a burger with your favorite beer, margarita or spritz!

5. The Virgin Hotel

Looking for a trendy and insta-worthy pool in the Design District? This is IT. The Virgin Hotel's rooftop pool has Dallas skyline views from you to enjoy from their bar, pool or rooftop patio. They often have pool parties with DJs too (if that's more your scene). Either way, cocktails are a must, just LOOK at how cute they are!

6. The Four Seasons Las Colinas

If you're looking for a spot to golf, lay by the pool and take a trip to the spa, then this is it. Located just outside of Dallas, the Four Seasons is a must for all the golf lovers out there. Because what's better than a dip in the pool after an early morning tee time?

7. Renaissance Legacy West

If you're talking fun in the sun in Plano, then you're talking about the rooftop pool deck at Renaissance Legacy West. The walkable district surrounding the Renaissance is packed with great shopping options, restaurants and bars, and this pool is the perfect refresher after a long afternoon of exploring the scene! With a full bar poolside and cabana rentals available, too, it's easy to plant yourself by this beautiful pool and forget your worries.

8. Omni Las Colinas

Wrap yourself in the beautiful surroundings at this incredible resort-style pool in Las Colinas! You don't have to be staying at the Omni to enjoy all it has to offer — you can also get a Resort Pass for day access. The fun here isn't just about the swimming and sunbathing, either. The expansive pool deck features 160 chaise lounge chairs, sweeping views of Lake Carolyn, daybeds and multiple yard games, too! This is another pool option guests can enjoy year-round, as it is heated.

9. uptown Marriott

Ok, a little dish. Staying at the Uptown Marriott is a complete blast, and WAAAAY too few people are in the know about this amazing place! The rooftop pool deck features some of the most scenic Dallas views of any pool on this list, and the pool is heated, so feel free to step outside and enjoy in almost any weather! With so much to do in Uptown, a stay at the Marriott makes a ton of sense anyway, but this rooftop pool deck experience just puts it over the top, y'all.

10. omni Dallas

The rooftop pool deck at the Omni Dallas is a true urban oasis in the center of downtown. Unwind in the therapeutic INFINITY pool, enjoy a cocktail or soak up the sun on one of the lounge chairs while overlooking all that downtown has to offer. It's one of those insta-worthy summer moments that will make your TL shine. Don't forget to wander over to the Uptown Terrace Pool Bar & Grill for more sweeping views of downtown and the perfect bites and cocktails to pair with your summertime relaxation!

11. Hotel Drover

And Fort Worth is officially on the resort-style pool deck map, because the Hotel Drover has entered the chat, y'all. The amazing pool is plunked down into such a beautiful and lush environment — it really makes for maximum relaxation. Grab one of three private poolside cabanas — each outfitted with chandeliers — IF YOU CAN. Those reservations are hot, hot, hot! It truly is a backyard experience unlike any other at the Drover. Even as hot as a Fort Worth summer gets, you'll want to stay outside all day — just don't forget to reapply the sunscreen.

12. LIve by Loews Arlington

Enjoy your favorite beverage from your spot in the pool, take a seat at the aptly named SOAK Bar, or gather with your friends on the daybeds and outdoor lounges on our expansive patio. SOAK offers local, domestic, and imported beers, wine, and cocktails, along with juices, soft drinks, and light bites perfect for sharing during the months of May through October in the growing entertainment district by the Rangers' Globe Life Field and the Cowboys' AT&T Stadium.

How do you access these pools? Do you have to stay there or are there day passes? Hard to find any info on their websites.
