My Guide to Chicagoland’s Best Indoor Pools

March 14, 2024

One question I frequently receive is about the best hotel pools in Chicago. As spring break and summer are on the horizon, it’s the perfect time to present the official Chicago Good Life indoor hotel pool guide!

Have you heard of Swimply and Resort Pass? Swimply is like an Airbnb for pools, allowing you to book private pool spaces by the hour. Search by town and filter by indoor pool, hot tub, etc, to see what’s available near you!

Meanwhile, Resort Pass is all about the daycation. You can browse by city and amenities to find hotels near you that offer day passes and discounted rates. For instance, a day pool pass at Intercontinental is $40 per adult and $25 for kids, totaling $130 for a family of four. But this grants access to their indoor heated pool, poolside seating, sauna, Wifi, fitness center, and discounts at hotel restaurants! Such a great idea!

If you are looking for some road trip essentials like travel pool toys and things to keep kids entertained on trips, you can see my shopping guide here!

Now, here’s a roundup of Chicagoland’s indoor heated hotel pools sorted by city and burbs:
