World-famous indoor swimming pool

I stayed in the St. George several times as an Army brat going and coming from Germany. The military had a contract to provide lodging for in-transit military families. The one thing I remember most is the huge basement swimming pool at the St. George. As I recall, that was quite a calling card back in the '50s. I remember it being very dark and reeking of chlorine.

A Gershwin moment

I'm sure this is what he had in mind when he wrote Rhapsody in Blue (or, if not, it's what he SHOULD've had in mind).
