The Chloe

While not a rooftop pool per say, The Chloe’s unparalleled ambiance and proximity to campus (10 minute streetcar!) solidify its spot on this list. The hotel itself is in a refurbished mansion on St. Charles. The pool is surrounded by lush greenery and features a trendy poolside bar. Non-hotel guests can buy a pool pass for $25 dollars. While you’re there, save time to visit their one of a kind restaurant, open for brunch, lunch, and dinner daily.
