    Hi all, we’re contemplating a return visit in Sept/Oct. we haven’t been back since the renovation so we would love some clarification on all of the different room types now - eg Bash Tower, Lush Tower, Plush, Trendy, etc?
    Does anyone have a new property site map?
    Are there rooms to avoid like those above the old Paty-O’s?
    Would appreciate any and all advice.
    Thanks
    Deb & Wayne

    The rooms above the old Paty'O were the best, close by to everything especially for those quick wardrobe malfunction issues, as far as noise we were up late until Paty'O closed down most of the time and if we went in early we were tired & trashed and then noise wasn't a issue. We stayed in room 2228 it was a double sized room the balcony facing the road out front, great room for a room crawl.
    In my opinion the bash tower ocean view rooms are the best deal and only slightly more $$ than the very basic rooms elsewhere in the resort where you have no idea where there going to put you, what your view will be and what type of beds your going to get. You also get to use the roof top area SKY 3.5, its included with any of the tower rooms, otherwise it's $20 per person per day. From the postings I have read the tower rooms are pretty quiet even when bash is going strong. We will find out at the end of October.

    We like the Jacuzzi rooms mainly for their location.

    At TTR now.
    Was quoted $200/night additional from garden room price today to upgrade.
    They came down to $140.
    Still said no.
    I was feeling more like $50.
    Crickets,
    And hotel is only about 60% occupancy!
    Plain greed.

    Upgrade to the tower? Glad to hear the hotel is at 60%, it was at 35% earlier this week.

    Will be there tomorrow about 2pm, not doing the cruise as have a Dr appointment at 11am and then have to drop Jannet and the kids at the airport at 1:30pm.

    See you at the Premier Bar.

    Thats crazy what they're thinking these rooms are worth. When we booked our 10 nights trip with Expedia the extra cost from garden view to the bash tower was $250 total for the 10 nights, not per night.
    I agree with you it's plain greed.

    Personally, going from garden to Tower isn't worth $140 extra a night but to some, it may be.

    Yikes. That is extreme. It is like they are throwing money out the window. I don’t even think it is a $200 difference if booking in advance.

    Yes...crazy and makes no sense!
    You would think that they would take something vs. nothing since hotel not full.
    Can always debate occupancy percentage.
    I think they always over report for hype.
    The place is so big now and folks spread out so much it is hard to tell.
    Restaurants seem fairly empty.
    My guess is 40-50% but it is truly a qualitative estimate.
    We will just stuff 25-30 into our garden room for the room crawl!
