I haven't stayed at Swan in over a year, so I can't say for sure what they have now, but they are Westin-branded and usually carry what other Westins have. They had Bath & Body Works products (coconut lime verbana). I also have a bottle of body lotion from Swan: Heavenly (white tea aloe).

Hopefully someone can update/confirm the current Swan products! I won't be there until November.
Swan finally has the Westin-branded products which have the White Tea fragrance (same one usually found in the lobby).

First thing in this morning's in box is the Swan's "We’re ready for your arrival" email!
Makes it official...It's almost here.

Been almost 3 years since our vacation of any kind. Our son, Colin, 11, was diagnosed last year with autoimmune hepatitis, and the trade-off of his liver functioning properly with the meds. is intentionally suppressing his immune system, and he's now prone to getting infections and sick more often. And boy, does it...And it stinks!

The game has changed is all, DW and I have told him. He's been biopsied, poked and prodded for months now and has taken it all in stride. That's our Colin.
Have to give a shout out to DuPont Children's Hospital in Wilmington, DE. Amazing is the word that comes to mind. We're there every two weeks, sometimes more frequently, if needed.

And so Colin mentioned heading to SWW a while back, as he absolutely loves SW, his Dr. gave us the green light for Disney, where he's all set to be Carbon Froze and Cloned as a Trooper as well!

Colin likes camouflage items, so if you see a young man with a camo. Disney pin lanyard and camo. medic. alert bracelet, on the 17th., please stop and say hi...We'd love to meet fellow DISers!


Happy Mom's Day!,

I hope Colin has a wonderful time. May the Force be with all of you!

PS - might I suggest emailing the hotel and letting them know about how special this trip is for Colin. The staff is awesome, and they've gone above and beyond for us many times in acknowledging special occasions that we've been celebrating.

I second that sentiment! And I think that's great advice to email the hotel.

I'm Starwood Preferred Plus (at least I think that is the name) and just stayed at the Dolphin May 1-8. We had a standard view booked, and were upgraded to a balcony room. I didn't ask about an upgrade...it was offered. Very nice to have the balcony, but it ended up being a pretty long walk from the elevators on the west side. It kind of felt like one of those BWV walks from the elevators . In any case, it was unexpected and very much appreciated.

Just a question... Booked the Dolphin last night for long weekend Labor Day.. Put my credit card info in for deposit but it never charged it. I got a confirmation # and everything but I'm nervous about it!
Happen to anyone else?

Yes, a couple of us had that problem several months back. What I did was go into the reservation and clicked the icon to "modify" it. I didn't make any changes to the reservation, but clicked "save changes" and that apparently did the trick! The deposit showed up as "pending" in my Amex account by the end of that day!

I don't know if or when the reservation would be canceled for non-payment of deposit, but I sure didn't want to take any chances!!
