"It's starting to look to me as if the "Olympic" designation might just be fairly modern advertising ballyhoo by the hotel."

And he might be right.

from the LA Times 10/31/93

Here's a reference to the 'Olympic-sized pool' in the book, Built to Last by Stanley Turkel. (a book about hotels which are 100+ years old)

The 'Olympic-sized swimming pool' seems to have taken on a life of its own.
