The rooftop pool at the California Hotel and Casino is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the Fremont Street activities.

Pool Season

The pool season typically runs from mid-March thru mid-October. As these dates are weather dependent please contact the hotel directly for exact opening and closing dates. As a note, due to the much cooler than normal Spring, the pool did not open until May in 2023.
