new rooms at CSR - what do they look like?

Do they look like they previously did with the bright colors -just larger beds or do they have a totally new look? Also what bath products do you get? Just shampoo and conditioner or other items? For regular rooms not the club level rooms. TIA

They look quite a bit different. More contemporary with queen size beds, white comforters and big flat panel TVs.

That was kinda funny in a dumb sort of way.)

Everything was clean and neat, the landscaping really is gorgeous, and the walk around the lake is quite relaxing and pretty. We made that walk a few times actually, going to and from the pool. Since we were in Casita 1, we'd walk to the pool going past El Centro and across the bridge in front of the Cabanas, then we'd return by going past Casita 5 and back around to Casita 1.

We were very fortunate to receive a newly renovated room, and it was lovely.














Here's a look at the new curved shower curtain rods.


Desk:


Ceiling fan:


Coffee maker:


New LCD TV and dresser:


Mini-fridge:


I did have an unfortunate mini-fridge incident. From past experience with mini-fridges, I turn the cold up quite high because they never seem to get very cold. Well, um, this time it did get cold.....too cold! So one of my diet Coke cans exploded.....everywhere......all over everything......inside the fridge.......and then froze over everything. Needless to say, I had a big mess to clean, but I left the fridge (and under the fridge) spotless. That in-room hair dryer had multiple uses this trip.

One other tiny statement, this one about Disney soap. Now I have to say I love the Disney soap with the cute little Mickey on it. But let me tell ya, round soap is not the best shape. I mean, after all, it's soap....meaning SLIPPERY! But when it has round edges, well, it makes for a more challenging shower. I dropped the darn soap at least once every morning while showering, and sometimes twice or three times. Oh well. My hubby got a kick out of listening to the "thud" every morning while I was in the shower.

Okay, more pics coming!
Here are some pics.

No, they have not. They just started the rehab in October and first did Cabanas 9B as that is all Club Level. They've completed the 4th floor of Casitas 1 and are working on 4th floor of Casitas 2 and 3 and Cabanas 9A. All rooms are to be completed by October 09.

But wait! According to Buzz's site . . .

"LATEST UPDATE!!! - All buildings in every village now have queen beds. The only rooms left with full size beds are the 100 rooms that will be converted to king size beds. These rroms are scattered throughout the resort. Cabana 9b (CLub Level rooms) has reopened and pictures of the redone rooms are filtering in. The room rehab has also begun in the casita section. Casita 1, 4th floor is done and the work has move to casita 2 & 3, 4th floor."

Yes, the queen beds were done before October of this year. They then started on the painting, carpeting, curtains, furniture, etc.

They look great! They are part of the reason we switched our reservation from CBR to CSR.

Wow - those rooms don't look a lot like Disney. I guess its another refrub that turns a Disney hotel into a conference hotel. Just another reason I won't be staying at CSR
