2007: The Top 10 Hotel Lap Pools in North America

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Athletic-Minded Traveler LLC, a Southern California-based active lifestyle media company that operates the largest healthy travel site on the web,, released today its 2007 ranking of “The Top 10 Hotel Lap Pools in North America.” The 10 best hotel lap pools received the company’s recommendation after in-depth research on over 3,000 hotels and anonymous personal tours by the editorial staff. Selection criteria included pool length, true lap pool characteristics (lines, flags, etc.), water temperature, filtration and overall ambiance/atmosphere. To be considered as a “hotel lap pool,” the facility must be located on hotel property.

“Many hotel properties incorrectly claim to offer a lap pool facility, but these North American accommodations are accurate in their lap pool representations and provide the best swim venues on the continent,” said Jim Kaese, Co-Founder and Managing Member of Athletic-Minded Traveler LLC.
