Sneak into these 5 Dallas hotel pool decks for summer 2023
As the gateway to summer, Memorial Day weekend feels like the right time to start thinking about pool action in Dallas. Who among us has not harbored a fantasy of sneaking into a pool that is not ours for a quick, stealthy dip.
These five hotels actually do not require stealth. They accept non-hotel guests, some for the very first time. Some limit access to the pool bar only, others allow a swim, and some rent out poolside cabanas.
