    Considering spending a couple nights at Desire RM after shutting Temptation down. It would be September 25 through the 27th, how bad is the ongoing construction? Does it detract much from the experience?

    When we were there this past May it looked they were getting ready to redo a few rooms. We heard, just rumor that they might be redoing the patio area just outside the lobby.

    They are redoing a block of rooms to make more suites. We were at Pearl in August and people who visited RM also said it was a non issue. I wouldn't let it stop you from booking.

    My wife and I just got back yesterday from Desire Pearl and the construction that is happening to don't even see unless you are walking around on the one side of the property.
    Good luck and enjoy your trip.
    Joe and Ashley.

    They are making what will be called Desire Suites. Two story rooms each with a hot tub from what I have heard. supposedly to be finished late October or early November. Will check them out when we are there at that time

    Is the O/P referring to the pending construction of the "villas?"

    We just got back - they are doing quite a bit of construction at RM, but it's away from the pool area. Lots of workers working around the 1700 block (which is where we were at) but we had no issues with it detracting from our vacation. They are re-doing a couple of the villas into bigger better suites. They have orange fences around the construction area. You don't hear it at night, and you don't hear it at the pool or restaurants.

    We had a blast and are glad we went!
