Everything I've heard locally has room prices right in line with the other hotels here. Which means I won't be able to afford to stay there either!

Breaking news!! Escrow has finally (today) closed! An extension on demo permits was granted last week to allow this, so, looks like things will finally start happening!

I'm looking forward to seeing what they do. With all the neglect, plus the storm and fire damage, a complete re-build allows modernization. And to make money, it will have to attract and hold a following. So I'm expecting some vintage stuff to remain, like maybe the Elvis bungalows. Definitely the beautiful landscaping and the canals. I do want to visit when it's completed, I'm sure it will be paradise.

The plan is to rebuild it as it was. Everything wood will be torn down and rebuilt. So all bungalows will be completely rebuilt. The main three story hotel wings will be torn down to their steel and concrete core structures,, and redone.
The lagoon stays the same, the entire grounds layout stays the same, all buildings are to be rebuilt on their existing footprints.
I would imagine everything will have to be updated code-wise, and with newer type materials, but the intent is to have the place look the same.
