Guests can enjoy a relaxing day at the iconic Esther Williams Swimming Pool, named after the actress and competitive swimmer who starred in the 1947 movie, This Time for Keeps, filmed at Grand Hotel.

The Pool offers poolside cabanas, a family-friendly area complete with a zero-depth beach entry, water jet play area, and water slide, a large heated whirlpool and a private adults-only area featuring an infinity edge and magnificent views. No stay at Grand Hotel is complete without a pool day, or two!

In need of a mid-day bite? The Esther Williams Pool Bar has just what you need!

Please note the slide will be open on Saturday and Sunday only from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
