Hello, all! I did sleep in! Thanks for all the kind words, it still needs a lot of work but we're off and running.

Always great to see a "refurbished" thread!! I just made ADR's for my fall trip (I'll probably end up changing them many times, but got everything I wanted). Can't wait to get back to the Grand!

There are photos of the new beach area on the first page - in the "Recreation" post, I think it is post #14.

Links to photos of the garden views in Boca are also on the first page - in the "Guest Rooms" thread, here and here.

Good luck with your dining plans, I have a hard time choosing, too. Glad you got everything you wanted - for now, anyway.

Love the refurbished rooms. Between the hotel and the Villas, the Grand definitely has the most beautiful rooms on property.

Thanks for the new thread. It was getting difficult to search through 250+ pages. I am excited as I only have 7 more days to go!
