Completed in 1889 as part of the recreational facilities of the Alcazar, the swimming pool was a major attraction for the hotel. Throughout the day the Alcazar pool came to life with entertainments for its Gilded Age guests, including daring high dives from the ballroom balcony into the pool, swings from gymnasium apparatus hanging from the rafters, games of water polo, swimming races, and an assortment of comic events such as tub races.
