15 Hotels With The Best Outdoor Spaces for Loungin' (That Aren't Rooftops)

June 17, 2014 at 5:59 PM | by | ()

With summer almost officially under way, hoteliers are getting their (rubber) ducks in a row in preparing their outdoor spaces for the influx of party-hungry crowds, both guests and locals alike. Terrace seating areas are primped, outdoor lighting and special effects are recharged, and bars with summer drinks and menus await our arrival.

As a kickoff to a wonderful summer season that most of us have already started, we have compiled a photo gallery of hotels' outdoor living spaces representing a range of designs and scenic settings. For this gallery we did not focus on rooftop bars or pools, as those have, like, totally been done before.

Well, the Tribeca Film Festival has come and gone, but that doesn't mean the fun's over in Tribeca for the rest of the year. Hardly! We've got our eye on the Greenwich Hotel—and now that summer is on the way, we're ready to pay a visit to the hotel's guests-only Courtyard.

Situated next to the Drawing Room, the Courtyard (pictured) expands on the Greenwich's whole retired-archaeologist-living-in-the-English-countryside vibe, with quaint stone benches, hanging lanterns, and ivy creeping up the brick walls. A Front Desk agent we spoke to called the space "quite stunning."

Of course, guests are the only ones who can actually access the Courtyard. But wait! Didn't we just hear about a new space inside the hotel that's become available to non-guests? Why, yes, as a matter of fact...

If you're sick of the gym and are looking to try something new while you're away, here's a nifty outdoor experience we recently heard about being offered in St Kitts. Alongside the St Kitts Marriott Resort sits Mount Liamuiga, a 3,790 foot tall volcano, which is of course dormant, and, even better, teeming with indigenous rainforest flora and fauna.

All of which should keep you suitably enthralled during the three-hour hike uphill through the rainforest. By the time you reach the crater's rim, we think you'll be plenty warmed up—even without lava spewing down all around you.

Elmo. NASA. The Eventi Hotel. What's Not To Like?

Apparently, the prospect of meeting real, live members of the Atlantis Space Shuttle crew, while bouncing around on an inflatable Mars space rover wasn't enticing enough. So now, the Eventi Hotel is throwing Elmo into the mix.

Apparently, the fuzzy red guy made an appearance last month at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, where NASA's final space shuttle mission took off. So his presence totally makes sense. Right? Honestly, the whole NASA-Eventi-Sesame Street triumvirate strikes us as a little random. But getting to play with space toys and a Sesame Street character? At a hotel? That's too hard to pass up.
