Every hotel should have a pool. If they don’t, you shouldn’t even bother with them. A pool is a sign that you are welcome and invited to relax and unwind. But all hotel pools are not created equally. The parking lot pool at a motel cannot compare to a breathtaking infinity pool on an ocean cliffside or a complex of caverns in Hawaii. Some pools are worth traveling for.
