Happy National Rum Day! In order to celebrate the holiday, we found a few hotel bars offering rum specials that pack a punch:

  • Kimberly Hotel, NYC: Upstairs at The Kimberly Hotel is offering a discount on their signature rum drink called Rum Service. Tastes of honey and pear perfectly accentuate the rum, while the NYC skyline views from the bar are unbeatable.
  • Revere Hotel, Boston: Go for a dip in the rooftop pool while you sip on Hibiscus Punch from Revere Hotel. This rum drink garnished with a beautiful hibiscus flower tastes so good, they serve pitchers of it!

It's already August, and it seems like this summer has flown by! Before the fall season rolls around, we set out to visit some of the country's best hotel swimming pools. These gems aren't your average places to splash around—they are top-notch, and we can't wait to dive right in!

  • Viceroy Miami, Miami: Take in the stunning skyline views while you float in Florida's longest infinity pool. Just past the hotel buildings, you can see the nearby bay. If the colder water isn't your thing, step over to one of the two oversized heated whirlpools—they are heavenly.
  • Grand Wailea, Maui: Waterfalls, rapids, and caves—oh my! Grand Wailia's Wailea Canyon Activity Pool is one of the most exciting pools we've ever seen. It consists of nine pools on six different levels, all connected by a river to carry swimmers from one to the other. It has slides, rapids, a rope swing, a sand beach, waterfalls, caves, and the world's first water elevator! Adults can chill out in the mosaic-lined Hibiscus Pool, where no children are allowed and relaxation is encouraged.
