Day Passes for Hotel Pools!

Locals can take a dip in two urban-respite pools beginning this weekend.

Come late spring, you tend to get extra chummy with your friends who have pool access.

Why not be the one to invite people to take a dip at "your" digs? Beginning Memorial Day weekend, two swank-in-the-city hotels will extend a day pass invitation for locals to lounge in style when the temps rise. You'll be swimming in RSVPs.

W New Orleans French Quarter WET Pool Pass Every Sunday May 28 - September 3, a $30 pass gets you access to the lush courtyard pool. The fee goes towards your poolside sips and eats. Don your best wide-brimmed hat and pack your favorite round beach towel and make a day of it. 

Le Meridien Nola Pool Pass Every Saturday and Sunday May 27 - September 3, score a $15 pass that includes access to the pool and one complimentary glass of wine, beer or daily featured cocktail. On Sundays there's a live DJ. Insider tip: BYO beach towel. Wanna up the ante? Throw down on a cabana package for $350 that features private, covered seating poolside for six people, a bottle of booze, mixers, water, valet parking, fresh fruit and chips and salsa. 

Yet another reason to hit the W FQ, to sweeten the scene, step next door to SoBou every Friday from 4 - 7 p.m. to tip back F’Rose cocktails and take in live music.
