Everyone's always talking about the importance of location. Well, the Stratosphere's pool, which is open seasonally, certainly has a great one.
Located on the eighth floor of the hotel, sweeping views of the Strip can be had from the 68,000-square-foot pool area, 15,000 of which are for the pool alone. There's plenty of room to sunbathe, and the spacious deck also offers an oversized spa, cabanas and a special events area. A poolside shop carries sunglasses, sunscreen, swimsuits and various other items you forgot to bring to the pool.
The Level 8 Pool Café and Bar offers a delicious selection of Baja-style food and drink specialties and many other refreshing favorites.
The Level 8 pool is open to the public, and has two entrances: the 8th floor of the hotel, and on the casino floor near the race and sports book.
