Nashville has become a must-visit destination, especially during the warmer months. Although there are endless things to do in Nashville outside of your hotel, it’s nice to take advantage of your hotel’s amenities. Undoubtably, one of the best amenities a hotel can have is an outdoor pool to enjoy on a hot day. In addition to the tried-and-true hotels, there are several newer hotels with pools to consider. Here’s the list of the Best Hotels with Outdoor Pools in Nashville.
SEASONAL NOTE: Most outdoor pools in Nashville are only open seasonally. Before booking, make sure the hotel’s pool is open during your expected visit.
Best Hotels with Outdoor Pools in Nashville

Reserve a cabana on the JW Marriott Nashville’s expansive pool deck, located in the SoBro neighborhood. This spacious outdoor pool has plenty of loungers, poolside service, and skyline views that are hard to beat. The pool is open daily from 6:00am to 11:00pm.

The Westin Nashville is a top-notch option within Downtown Nashville. There is an infinity rooftop pool on the 27th floor that has a glass wall on one side, making the views of Nashville unobstructed. The pool is located outside of L27 Rooftop Lounge, which is open to the public. However, the pool is only for hotel guests.
The Bobby Hotel is situated on 4th Avenue in Downtown Nashville. The extensive rooftop features a pool, 1956 Scenicrouser bus, and lounge. Refreshing drinks and delicious light bites are available to order. The pool is open to hotel guests seasonally from sunrise to sunset.
The Kimpton Aertson, located in Midtown, is home to some of the best nightlife in Nashville outside of the Broadway honky-tonks. The hotel pool on the eighth floor is shared with apartment residents from the other half of the building, which creates a fun mix of locals and visitors. Enjoy drinks and food poolside from the outdoor bar.
The Omni Nashville holds one of the best locations in the SoBro neighborhood. The impressive rooftop pool is one of the largest of any hotel in Music City. Guests can expect views of the Nashville skyline including the “Batman building.” The pool amenities include cabanas, a lounge deck, and a rooftop bar with food and drinks.
Virgin Hotels Nashville
The Pool Club at Virgin Hotels Nashville, located in Midtown, is one of the most popular rooftop pool options the city has to offer. Guests can book an overnight stay or reserve a day pass or cabana to get access to this exclusive pool experience.
Gaylord Opryland Resort
Gaylord Opryland Resort has an indoor and outdoor waterpark called Soundwaves, exclusive to hotel guests. If you’re looking for more than a simple soak in a rooftop pool or if you are traveling with kids, you may want to consider staying here. Only hotel guests who book the Soundwaves package are able to access the activities to keep the crowds at bay. Guests can expect a slide tower, FlowRider wave simulator, rapid and lazy rivers, activity pool, restaurant, adults-only pool and bar, private cabanas, and a kids area. Gaylord Opryland is about 15-20 minutes from Downtown Nashville.
Cambria Hotel, located in Downtown Nashville, has a fifth floor heated pool with great views of the city so you’ll still feel like you’re part of the action. Enjoy refreshments from the pool bar while you swim or bask in the sun.
The JW downtown should definitely be on this list. It is the best of the downtown pools in my opinion
