Rooftop Pool, The Colonnade, Boston

We have heard of many girlfriends throwing bachelorette parties and spa days at the Rooftop Pool at The Colonnade and enjoying concerts on the roof. While we were searching for an oasis in the city during staycation and the Rooftop Pool sounded like a great idea.

For $300/night, up to four guests per hotel room can enjoy the pool, but the rooftop pool is open to the public from Monday – Friday for a flat fee of $50 per person per full day and $25 per person from 3:00 PM until 8:00 pm. The pool is not open to the public weekend and holidays.

We were expecting an infinity pool, sleek and modern amenities. The website’s photos really make the roof space super sexy and the ultimate location. The lighting really makes the ambiance. Unfortunately, the partial carpeting may prevent injuries, but seemed outdated. 

The rooftop pool’s view of Boston’s Back Bay architecture and does make one feel you are not in the city.

Our friend was hoping for a swim up bar and found a cement enclosed bar. The upside was there are frozen and specialty drinks for $10 to $12 a pop. From mango based frozen cocktails to pina coladas, this made us feel like we were at a resort.

As long as patrons’ expectations are clear, that there will be some frozen drinks and relaxing sun will be had. Just fare warning,  some days patrons will be surrounded by children splashing in the pool and although the patio furniture is very Miami, the pool is a bit outdated.
