I just received confirmation from Mr. Scott that this is being refunded. Thanks for the advice. I really do love the Swan and Dolphin, and am pleased that I received a response. I'm happy that I will be able to do business with them in the future. They are refunding my money.

I put the cup under and began to brew and it just kept going and going and it overflowed the cup and kept going. Luckily I was standing right there! There's no way to turn it off, so I had to just unplug it and clean up the mess. So embarrassing!

Use the provided cup and only fill it with as much water as you want it to brew (if you want to put cream or sugar in, don't fill it all the way to the top with water.) It's going to brew exactly what you put in each time.
Thank you for the Tip!!

Now we are paying about $143/night and getting a $50 resort credit:

I believe the offer is available for the Dolphin as well.
We are staying at the Dolphin 8/15 - 8/20 at an AAA discount with the $50 resort credit for $114.00 a night (standard room - not including taxes and resort fee).

These are wonderful rates! Can't wait until they extend to 2013. When I checked for January, it's still over $200/night plus taxes and fees.

We were thinking of getting the deluxe alcove for a little more space, but not if I can't use points.
Thanks!
The only other points rate that I know of is 20,000 pts/night for a suite. I don't know which kind of suite that is for, though. Perhaps someone else has better information? If it is for an alcove room, I don't think it makes sense in terms of points value, since I don't think those rooms are twice the size of a standard. We are currently booked in the resort view with points, but I would love to upgrade to a fireworks view, even if it means paying some amount per night in cash. By the way, keep in mind that if you pay for 4 nights with points, the 5th should be free (so 40,000 points for 5 nights in a standard room).

Wow, $114/night AAA with the $50 credit is a fantastic rate. We got a AAA rate of $127/night with the $50 credit for mid-Sept. If you don't mind me asking, when did you book the $114 rate? I have checked a few times to see if our rate went down but it's still $127/night. Have fun.

question- are the resort credits worth much? pp is calculating his rate based on the credit, but I can't bring myself to do that when figuring rates...what can it be used for? is it literally like money to use at the restaurants? tell me more.....

The resort credit can be used at the restaurants, lounges, spa -- maybe even the gift shops (but I'm not sure about that).

It's not very difficult to spend a $50 credit!

I booked it in June. I linked my AAA account with Starwood (following the stellar advice from this thread) so maybe it is due to that? I don't know why I was able to secure such a great rate. I think for the Swan it was $128 a night for the same time period. By the way - I booked it online on the SPG website.

To share rate info.....I am getting a rate of $224 with out fees with Starwoods Preferred. The gov't rate quote was 229...These are for standard view at the Swan. Dates March 21 - March 29...Spring break...Week Before Easter, etc.

I didn't think that was high at all.

We are Dolphin veterans, but know nothing of the swan except what I have learned from all of you. Can anyone tell me about the layout of the hotel floors....How many elevator banks, etc. Remember I am used to the larger Dolphin.

The Swan is about half the size of the Dolphin, and there are east and west elevator banks. It's quite easy to get around the Swan.
