Rooftop Pools in Paris?

Hey guys - any (good) hotels in Paris with a rooftop pool? Doesn't seem to be very common.

height regulations make rooftop real estate too valuable to use for a pool I know one which is a private residence, but can't recall any hotel having it; or any good pools in Paris. It isn't why people visit Paris, I suppose

The weather is not conducive to outside pools in Paris-- rarely gets very warm. Head down to the Riviera.

Also, the cosmetics might be dicey as well, might be regulations concerning appearance-- also, no buildings over 6 stories on the inner perimeter of Paris-- (Except for the Montparnasse mistake),

Novotel Tour Eiffel hotel (former Hotel Nikko) has an indoor pool (with open roof during summertime).

Somewhat smallish, though.

I know a rooftop swimming pool, but it is privately owned.
