Let’s face it: Winter can be a real drag. When temperatures head south of 32 degrees and dip into the single digits, when the snow piles up week after week, when the US is stuck in winter’s icy grip, it’s hard not to dream of running off to Tahiti or the Caribbean.

With warm water and tons of natural light, here are 10 great city hotel pools for escaping the winter chill.
