    The daily pool pass ($55 weekend, $45 weekday) says 12-4PM but is actually good for all day. Opt for a bottle of rosè and the mezze platter and enjoy the sunshine.

    For the ultimate see-and-be-seen Date Night spot, make a reservation out back and lounge by their roomy saltwater pool with a cocktail. (TIP: you don't have to be a hotel guest to reserve pool spots)

    Has a place-to-be-in-summer pool and hopping rooftop nightspot. It's also home to lauded restaurant The Elm. This 64-roomer, with glassy facade and modern meets mid-century interiors boasts views. Read more

    Rooftop bar - You'll find year-round sprawling views of Manhattan and McCarren Park at this rooftop, with cocktails highlighting local craft distillers. Rotation of live performances and DJ sets

    The highlight of this swank hotel located right on McCarren Park is the saltwater swimming pool, (which you can rent pool passes for if you're not lodging), with full bar and snack service. Read more

    Quiet rooms, high end fixtures, beds are on the soft side but good free coffee in lobby made up for it. City courts across the street, so if you play bring your rackets. Great leafy location.

    At the King & Grove Williamsburg, the 40-by-20-foot pool has two distinctions: 1) it's four feet deep, and 2) it's saltwater. It's very large, and has a lot of lounging space. Also open to the public. Read more

    Amazing fun at the pool, hefty cover charge, but food and drink are super good and reasonable! Snag the large cabana if you get there early.

    The lamb ribs shown here, soft shell crab sliders and pulled pork dumplings are all insanely top notch. Ask for the special spicey sauce.

    Pool: Very unpleasant experience on the weekend as too many people are let in. Literally every square inch is occupied leaving many visitors on the ground or sitting on a regular chair. $75 (Sat)

    As befits a hotel housing an outdoor saltwater pool with $45 day passes, there's also a rooftop bar in the picture. Williamsburg bastion of chic Upper Elm has snacks, cocktails, & music with a view. Read more

    Views of the Manhattan skyline and poolside cocktails? McCarren Hotel & Pool has both! This well-loved Brooklyn spot has a chilled-out vibe and is the perfect place for relaxing on a hot summer day.

    August 14th: You look sweaty. Skip the McCarren Park Pool (too crowded) and get a day pass at the McCarren Hotel’s gorgeous pool instead. Read more

    Nice room, cool roof deck bar, definitely go for Happy Hour if your staying at the hotel. The desk will give you free drink coupons.

    The cocktail menu at the pool is really disappointing. Options are beer or wine with an added ingredient(s) for more than $60. Service is blah. It's a salt water pool in NYC, though. #nycadventures

    A little swim and sunbath session 11:00-14:45 before heading to late lunch during the week while on vacation. Perfect! Would have liked to take in my phone though.

    You can use the pool all day for something like 40$. The rooftop is so nice for cocktails.

    Don't be fooled by the $45 day pass! You are only allowed to sit in the bleachers like second class citizens. A day bed aka a chair is over $200.

    Didn't use the pool, will have to go back and try it. The appetizers and drinks were good. The mosquitos, probably because of the pool, NOT!

    Bring nothing but your swimsuit and a towel with a padlock. The employees are super angry despite it being a beautiful pool...

    Great pool area and rooftop is nice. The bar food is embarrassingly bad though. Way below the standard in the area.

    Lane lines are up during the Early Bird and Night Owl Lap Swims. You aren't allowed in unless you bring a lock.

    I meaaaan, it's priced like a Manhattan hotspot but amenities are lacking, lobby is minimalist, wifi spotty and AC frowned upon. Pros: pool scene, location

    Delusions of grandeur. Costs more than it's worth then lacks generosity at every turn, charging the earth for every little thing. Bad value for money...

    Lifeguards get a lunch break from 3-4p which means you cannot swim at that time.
