    What do you guys think about this, and why? I have read the sections are 'the same' per the cast members, and also that the old section is closer to the pool. What do ya think?


    Also, which section has the best view (s) ?

    We just stayed in the old section. The only thing I can think of that the new section is good for, it is close to the parking garage. We used the free valet service instead of the parking garage. Just called before leaving the room and the car was waiting for us. Closer to the pools and Evergreens.

    Oh, another thing I did miss was the golf course view. Need to be in the new section for that now.

    I like the half walls in the old section. Makes it seem more like two rooms than a standard hotel room.

    I also like the tv hidden in the cabinet, rather than sitting on the top of the cabinet in the new section.

    If you want brand new rooms, go with the new section.

    The old section may have had a new coat of paint applied, but nothing else. The old rooms were supposed to be totally redone, but SOG ran out of time and money. Rumor has it that the old rooms will be refurbished in the next 2 - 3 years.

    You can see some photos of SOG here.

    Note that under April 2004 photos, the photos labeled

    Renovated Room I
    Revovated Room II
    Renovated Room - Bathroom

    are mis-labeled and are actually the new rooms in the new section.

    Under All Photos Below Taken before the Major 2002-2004 Renovation

    you can see photos of the old section.

    I like the new section because
    --closer to garage if you park your own car
    --that "new" feel
    --larger sofa
    --love the new decor

    I like the old section because
    --table and chairs for 4
    --closer to pool
    --halfwalls...don't know why...just like 'em
    --can hide the tv so the kids don't beg or turn it on at nap or bedtime :)

    They're both good! And yes, they're the same size room :)

    The 2-3 years until they refurbish the old rooms rumor was started by me :) That's what we were told when we asked about it when we were filmed for their new promotional video...
