Quotes from the Press:

"Delightful as the beach can be, there are times when nothing is more blissful than kicking around in a pool. Though the city offers a number of public watering holes (see sidebar), the ritzy Colonnade Hotel (120 Huntington Ave., Boston. 617-424-7000) takes this singular pleasure to new heights. Ride the elevator up to the 11th floor, ascend a couple of quick flights of stairs, and voila!: a shimmering sapphire oasis awaits..." Boston Globe Sidekick, June 14, 2007 by Ami Albernaz

"The most luxurious of the city's roof decks, The Colonnade's pool sits 11 stories up and feels like a visit to a rich relative's penthouse patio party. It's the sort of hangout that would be more at home in Los Angeles than Boston. Rows of blue lounge chairs surround a sparkling pool along which guests read Nick Hornby novels or lazily sip pina coladas. The sharp contrast between the idyllic patio and the surrounding high-rise office buildings is one of the reasons this spot is so unusual. The lifeguard/waitress confirms that the poor cubicle farmers working in those highrises stare down on the roof deck with envy..." by Christopher Muther, BOSTON GLOBE Calendar July 21-27, 2005.

"The whole city's Up there,"

 says John..."Up here you don't know what's going on. You're in your own little world." The built-in pool on The Colonnade's roof is an oasis in the middle of Boston. "City beach," D.C. and John call it. It's the only outdoor hotel pool in the city... The pool area has an air of vintage Hollywood glamour... [It] is a pocket of pampering and style unlike anywhere else in Boston. Sundays and Mondays the place is usually packed with the Newbury Street restaurant and hotel crowd... And the pool does attract the stars of Boston's media, seeking a little anonymity and a frozen daiquiri." STUFF @ NIGHT

Note: The Roof Top Pool is Seasonal and is generally open Memorial Day to Labor Day, weather permitting.
