The 100 degree days have arrived in Las Vegas and that means many people are taking refuge at various casino swimming pools. Casino swimming pools for many hotels close long before the sun goes down. This week’s Reader Poll asks the question do you think these pools should be open 24 hours a day. What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

I would prefer the pool to stay open 24/7 because sometimes it is better to be swimming at midnight than loosing my money in the casino.  Beth G. 

Swimming pools do not attract me much as the years continue to make my body less flattering, however, I see no reason why it should not be open around the clock, it is Vegas you know.  Lauren L. St Louis Missouri

No, I do not think they should be open beyond sundown. We only go to the pool in the early morning and prefer to play in the casinos in the evening. Many people may like to sit by the pool after the sun sets and there is shade in most pool areas in the daytime as well. Guests with children tend to use the pool during the early day and afternoon and can be a deterent to some. Certainly the more exciting place to be after sunset is on the strip. That's why we come from Canada every year.  Julie Henry  Ottawa Canada

Vegas is a 24/7 town and at least during the summer they need to have pools available 24/7. That is why we go to Vegas!   Larry Williams  Indianapolis, IN

They don't need to be open 24 hrs/day, but they definitely need to be open until 11 pm at which time guests can hit the casinos or their air-conditioned rooms.  Margaret Russell  Colorado Springs, CO

No. Do not open after midnight. Reopen at 6 a.m. First out of towner who drowns in a casino pool will produce publicity we don't want.   Dick Doyle  Las Vegas

I personally would like to see the casino pools open 24 hours. I don't think it would add expenses to the casinos and would be a big plus for the guests. I would be more likely to stay at the casino instead of a time share or hotel.  Ed Schulz  Urbana,OH

no, they should not.   norm monson  bremerton wa

24 hours is a bit much, but perhaps until 10:00 pm. I understand it is hard to patrol and monitor the pools, but it seems the staffing requirements would be offset by the money made at poolside bars, and potential "Special Events" like movie nights, or live bands. The greastest obstacle seems to be staffing since the power and water requirements already exist even if the pools are empty. With moderate marketing and promotion, it seems like the resorts could reap some new $ from an unsed source.  Phil Baker  North Las Vegas, NV

Yes ,I do think the pools Should stay open 24 hours a day. If they have to close for cleanning, maybe close from 4am tell about 8am.Las Vegas is a 24 hour town. With the weather they have, yes the pools should stay open. Maybe all the pools could have pool side gameing.I think that is why they close them anyway, to get the people back inside to gamble.  Steve  sedalia,mo

No, I don't think there is a need to be open 24/7 However, I Do think that pool(s) should have restricted hours for kids. Example: I would love to spend a couple of hours with my wife, lounging next to the pool, drinks in our hands, without hearing the voices of kids arguing with each other, splashing each other, and acting like they are at the city pool, instead of Vegas. I just don't see myself going to the pool at 3 in the morning.  Steven Tillinger  Parma, Ohio

The Las Vegas hotel pools should be open 24 hours. The sun is to hot during the day and the pools have way to many children. You can do anything you want in the city at any time of the day or night except swim. There have been so many times I have wanted to swim but had to wait till pool was open or it had already closed. I thought I was the only one who felt this way, thanks for this poll!   Lois Oas   Albion, NY would be great too cool off anytime at the pool. and less people would be sunburned. The casinos want to keep you indoors gambling...not at the pool tanning or partying. There could be nightime pool parties...with music I know it would be a great hit with guests. maybe make the nighttime pool activities for adults only. It would be another
fun story to tell about vegas if the pools were open later or 24hours!   Theresa Holden   zion,Il

Can You say Moonlight Pool Party? There could be so many nighttime themed events at the pool that I think the hotel/casinos are missing out on. It doesn't have to be open 24/7..but a pool closing at 6pm in the summer is ridiculous. I would say 9am-11pm Sun-Thurs..Fri-Sat 9am-2am.  Alex Zangotsis   Burlington/NC

No way too much of a chance for drunk people drowning.  Craig Ketover  Stamford CT

Absolutely they should. At least some places like the Nugget have hot tub hours until 2pm.   Rodd Rogers  Neosho/Missouri

Yes Yes Yes  No worry about getting sunburn No sqinting in the bright sun.  William Demmy  Lebanon

I strongly feel that swimming pools should remain open around the clock. This is a great relief for stress, heat, and a big feature of a lot of peoples vacation desires. Not everyone has their own pool at home, and going on vacation means getting to swim!! Lots of people prefer swimming at night, it's not as hot or bright and it offers a romantic setting. Perhaps evening swims could be for adults only!  Karen Demmy  Lebanon, PA
