Pool at IP and other questions

Hey guys... I'm staying at IP this May. I was wondering how their pool is??? and do we have access to any other pools in the hotels next door?

the pool is a basic pool, nothing special, concrete around the pool area to put the chairs on, a feeble attempt at a few palm trees..that said on a hot day it serves its purpose. There is also drink service. You can not use any of the other hotel pools if you stay at IP. I stayed here last summer and pool was ok, wet and cool, but as I said nothing special. I too am going in May I hope the weather is perfect so no matter what pool we are at we will appreciate it.

We once attended a luau there (not worth it, don't bother) that was held poolside at the IP. The pool was a rectangle set in concrete, virtually no landscaping or other decoration. I also believe they have a hot tub, also square set concrete. The pool is surrounded by tall buildings and gets limited sun. If the pool is closed for "renovation"

while you are there (maybe scrubbing the concrete or something) you would probably be able to use another hotel's pool under some contractual agreement, but other than that the answer is no use of other pools. People don't go to the IP for the pool. I'm unsure why people stay at the IP when the Flamingo next door has low rates also and has a great pool.

If there are no photos on the IP's website, you can always go to Vegas.com/resorts/pools to see photos of the hole in the concrete filled with water that the IP calls a pool.

Yes you have access to the Flamingo pool if you are staying at the Imperial Palace. They are owned by the samne company. Bring your hotel key with you and they will allow you into there pool and give you a towel.

Are you sure about this? If this is the case then guests of IP, Flamingo, Bally's, Paris, Harrahs,Caesar's and Rio could pool hop between all of those hotels. Ive never stayed at a Harrah's property but I am pretty certain this is not the case. If it is Im switching to the cheaper Bally's frm MGM so I can use Caesars pool!
