Best of Boston

2011 Best Swimming Pool, Indoor

Seaport Boston Hotel

Seaport Hotel’s Wave Health and Fitness Club isn’t the swankiest place to swim in Boston (that would be the InterContinental). But it’s far from crowded, well kept, and refreshingly affordable. The skylight-enhanced pool offers three warm, four-and-a-half-foot-deep lanes, and the $15 day fee includes the eucalyptus-infused steam rooms and plenty of workout equipment. Bonus: Kids are just $5 a pop.
