    We’ve heard a lot about the tower rooms but are wondering about the condition and features of the renovated rooms in the “old” section. Have they been upgraded significantly? Shortcomings? Thanks!

    The a/c worked well. Completely redecorated by Austin Powers but somewhat less functional, yet still very fuctional. (Is that a word?)

    Old rooms have all the features of the new rooms.
    Found the built-in units actually provided more storage area than the old rooms had.
    For example they had three deep drawers for your stuff. But you have to use it all. :)
    Like I put my shorts and jeans on the same shelf with the safe.
    Same shade across the balcony doors.. which if you haven't heard raises when you enter the room unless you turn off all the lights except the under bid lights. then when you come in it doesn't go up.
    Only exception is when they send you a message on your TV, then everything is out the window.

    That sounds as though you are describing the electrical system on an older British Leyland car! (Sam)

    Yes in October we stayed in one. They look like new. Same decor. I actually opted to stay in jacuzzi room by quiet pool this time instead of tower. Partly because I'd sound and little more quiet once we pass out lol

    I really liked the old room as far as location and functionality. Wasn't perfect but for the limited time we spent in it...it did its job.

    We never did figure it out. What is the secret?

    We looked at/stayed in three rooms in the older sections and they were good. We visited friends in the older section right next to the spa/lobby and they did in fact have the unfortunate sewer smell in their bathroom. That this issue has reemerged so quickly in some locations is very disappointing.

    To preface, I don't give a crap about a room as long as it has a/c, hot water, comfy bed, and is dark at night with the blinds closed. We don't come to TTR for the room but I totally get that others might care more than I do. I need it only to sleep, shower, and screw and not necessarily in that order. :p We stayed in 1126, one of the old rooms. Last year we stayed in 1130something so in the building just across from where we were this year.

    The room was fine - it had a/c that worked, hot water when there was enough hot water (for instance, at 4 am trying to wash paint off it never really got hot which totally ruined the "help remove my paint" party ;), but getting ready to go out each night to dinner it was hot enough), and the bed was comfy. Actually I love the bed and pillows. No sewage smell. However, blinds do not totally lower all the way and as reported, you cannot turn off the porch light. We used towels to block the 2 inches of light coming in. Also, lights in the new funky looking wall unit should go off when the doors are closed to each part of the unit, but ours did not. We had to have maintenance come at 2 am our first night because I'm a vampire and cannot fucking deal with light on in the room. He was there within 5 minutes of our calling and said it was an issue in some rooms, but he was able to fix it pretty quickly. So, no big deal.

    Biggest issue for my partner was that the toilet is right next to the shower in the same room. He likes a separate "toilet" area. Newer rooms in the tower have a door to the toilet area apart from the shower/sink. I told him we don't have a separate toilet area at home either so who cares?!? LOL, I guess privacy while pooping on vacation is important to him. To each their own!

    We were there over Halloween. "Old" rooms are better than before. Much better IMO.

    Our Quiet Pool Jacuzzi room was right next to the bathrooms you use for the Sexy Pool. It was pretty much like having two bathrooms in our room ,they were so close. Recommend that room for sure.

    We just got back in October and stayed in the new garden room over looking bash. Loud. Nice include though. Question?? We booked jacuzzi plush room for June. Are the hot tubs on the patio or inside ?? I think I underground's most inside now and if so where in the room. Does it crowd you if inside
