Wow. That's good. I kind of expected a coffee and danish from the lobby. Is the buffet included, or do you order off the menu, or is it something else?

As Dan said, yes it does still exist. We were there in May and had great sandwiches and cupcakes. I still think about the strawberry cupcake...

I have a transportation question as well. Since our first night is at the YC, we are using Magical Express on arrival. For our return to the airport, I just figured I would get a taxi or use Tiffany (used them in the past), but I'm wondering since this trip is just the two of us, maybe there's a better/cheaper option? What is the cost for Mears?

Thanks!

I had never been in the Swan or Dolphin before 2012...silly me. I know there was a big renovation of the lobbies in 2006 (I think). Do any of you long-time Swan/Dolphin goers have any pictures of the lobbies before the renovations? Just wondering what they looked like before.

I may have posted the above too quickly. I was able to find an old pictures thread from 2008. Dan has some pictures of the pre-renovated resorts.

Okay, this is getting a little foolish. I'm thinking Dan Murphy's lobby pictures that I found may have been post renovation, so I guess I'm still hoping to find some pre-renovation pictures of the S/D lobbies.

Just returned. . .

We arrived home yesterday afternoon after a wonderful 8 night, 9 day stay at Dolphin. Our room was exceptionally clean and the hallways were pristine with new carpet and paint. Gartner was about to descend upon the resort and the Dolphin staff was hopping to get all in order before the symposium. The lunch pavilion set up for the Gartner crew takes up the poolside walkway on the Swan side--huge!

When we arrived, the Dolphin fountain was being repainted and by Friday it was up and running again. The lap pool, however, was another story. On Thursday my husband and I were sitting poolside and noticed what appeared to be a leaf on the bottom of the pool. I went into the water to cool off and discovered it was not a leaf, but rather a fissure in the pool bottom that turned into a rather large hole. Rec staff roped off that corner of the pool for one day and did close the lap pool on Saturday. They said the repair person was coming, but we were there when he came on Friday and know he told them he couldn't get to it until Monday (today). Here's hoping they get it fixed quickly.

We had a fabulous time and look forward to our next visit--probably May.
