Ever since we first began traveling and going on vacations, it was clear the best part about staying at a hotel was the pool. The second you dipped your toes in all of life's worries seemed to slip away. If you're planning on vacationing in Austin, or just need a little escape from a nearby city, there's the perfect hotel pool to visit. The Westin Austin Downtown is home to Azul Rooftop Pool Bar and Lounge, a stunning vacation spot not many people know they can visit! And you don't even need to be staying the night there!

While staying at this gorgeous hotel is always an option, if you're solely looking for the vibes and views a hotel pool gives you, this place offers just that. After 5 PM the public is allowed to swim and relax in this heavenly Austin haven.  

The Azul rooftop pool has "bar" in its name for a reason. You can spice things up by ordering a couple of drinks from the bar and having the best time with your friends. There are also tons of yummy food options, so you won't have to worry about eating beforehand. Azul has it all!

The views from the top of this iconic hotel are absolutely incredible, so if you're only there to relax and lay out, there's no arguing with that. The hotel may charge an entrance fee depending on the events taking place at the pool, but even then you'll still be allowed to come on in and join in the fun. Whether you're vacationing or not, this is the place to go!
