Hmm....we were in a garden wing room a couple of days ago and the furniture/materials were pretty much the same as we had a couple of years ago in the tower room, which was post-refurb. So that was a long way of saying, yes, I think so.

There is a rehab going on right now. Some rooms are complete, sounds as though yours was not, michygoomy

The only word I have heard is that all rooms will be done by August, if not sooner

OK that's what my room looked like. It seemed to me the same as our
Last trip bit I guess not. The yellow pillows were reallt cute.

I was in 6124 - 1st floor far back building facing the pool. Its one of the odd rooms that has two windows and no daybed. And the storage space is terrible! I wasn't sure if it was just my room because it was odd but that blog seems to indicate its a problem in all the rooms.

OK, well then good - sounds like the rehab is coming along
That's too bad about the storage space.

I just booked a club level room in the tower for one night of my upcoming trip. So excited to stay there. Haven't stayed at CR since 1994

Love the look of the newly redone rooms. Glad they kept the tiles that light up below the TV.

All of the standard rooms (including the GW) are supposed to be completed in early July:

I'll be there in the middle of Aug so I hope this is right!

Eeek...am I the only one who hates the rehab? I really loved the last rehab, it was classy...as a very expensive resort should be! The new rooms look tacky as far as I'm concerned. At the moment...I'll be crossing CR off my list.

I'm sure you're not the only one. But I think it looks great!
Can't wait to check it out for myself next week
