There is nothing quite as refreshing as a nice dip in a pool. Fortunately for Chicagoans (and our out-of-town visitors) there are some great hotel pools in Chicago. Whether you need to cool off or are looking to take a few laps, check out our list of the hottest hotel pools in Chicago. (Photo:The Trump's pol by cHuber)

This luxurious hotel boasts a killer place for a swim session. Get your laps done in the 75-foot heated indoor pool overlooking the Chicago skyline. For access, book a room at the hotel or a treatment at the Trump Spa.
This 50-foot indoor swimming pool might look familiar; that's because it was featured in ?Home Alone.? Remember that scene where Kevin loses his swim trunks? Anyone not shooting a movie has to book a room in the hotel to swim (and trunks are required).
This whimsically designed pool has a rose mosaic tile on the bottom--created to simulate the feeling of swimming through a bed of roses. Not just anyone can swim in this masterpiece; the pool is only open to hotel guests and those who schedule a spa treatment. Time to book that much-needed massage.
With its wall of windows and hot tub, the indoor pool inside the elegant Peninsula Hotel is a must-visit. Non-hotel guests can buy memberships to the spa, which include access to the fitness facilities and the year-round pool. During summer, lounge chairs overlooking the city streets are the place to get a tan.
All it takes is booking a room to get your workout on in this three lane, 25-yard lap pool on the hotel's seventh floor. Then, when you've torched some serious calories, reward yourself with a cat nap in one of the cushy chaise lounges that line the deck area.
Situated on the 17th floor of the hotel, this year-round indoor pool is heated and accompanied by an on-site fitness center, so when winter comes, you can get your pool fix (and get a quick workout in) without stepping foot outside your hotel.
