Perfect idea - it's a great split! We did it in August: BLT one bedroom then into a Sea Raycer right on over to WL/CL. Actually, we drove and it took us less than 5 minutes door to door. Loved being able to walk right over to MK and then to FW

Why thank you, Amanda. CR really does have a fascinating history and has really evolved throughout the years. Those "southwestern-themed" years weren't its best, but they really made up for that with the last full rehab. I love the soft, Asian-inspired decor. I am a bit worried about the current soft rehab. Hope it's tasteful and seamless. Maybe babyberger will get the elusive photos for us next month - no pressure

Good idea

For some reason I feel the need to price out CR

A little sad that we couldn't stay CL this time as the 12th floor is closed when we are there but after seeing all the BLT pictures I am really excited about our 1 bedroom we booked there.

It appears that the balconies on the 14th floor are not covered like they are on the 12th floor. Does anyone know if they are partially covered or not? I would think this would not be good for sun or rain?!?

We have babyberger on the job. She'll be there next month and is going to ask for a (soft) rehabbed room.

Well, I was worried I'd miss CL, too when we tried BLT in August, but we didn't really miss it much at all. There are so many great dining options within walking distance and there is so much room (at least for 3 people) that it more than made up for not staying CL. You're going to love it and don't forget about the whirlpool tub and washer/dryer

Our resident suite expert on the old thread was Tara in PA - her suite photos are linked to in the CL section. However, she didn't post any photos of the balcony, but I know she could answer your question if someone else doesn't. You could try PMing her.

We stayed in a CR suite a few years back! The balconies are deeper (they fit more chairs and a lounger too! And yes, part of the balcony IS covered!

It will be fun looking through this thread! We own DVC at BLT and just got back from another wonderful trip. We usually stay in studios but this time we had a one-bedroom and it was fantastic!

This is my dilemma as well. We have enough points do to one trip in a 1 BR once a year, or two trips in a studio per year. There is a little wiggle room in there, but not much. We did a 1 BR at SSR, and that washer/dryer alone was great. But, when you added the space, tub, space, kitchen, private rooms, and did I mention space, it was even that much better. Then, BLT adds a second bathroom. So far, two trips have won out over the 1 trip, but I can see a time as my children get older that we will want the 1 BR all the time.
