They just don’t build ‘em like they used to. This is simply the biggest hotel swimming pool in the continental United States. The stats: 23,000 square feet. 700,000 gallons of water.

The 10 private cabanas, set within poolside gardens and outfitted with teak-wood chaises and outdoor rain showers, are for emperors in training.
