Have a great trip! Hope you have great weather for your trip.

Of course I didn't say that just because we will be there a few days after you arrive!

I have been checking the weather forecast daily and posting to the June FB group. So far it looking like right around 90 most days with chance of rain daily.... Normal June weather

June FB Group? The Swan Dolphin page or another one?

As long as it's mainly afternoon rain (we'll likely be back at the Dolphin then) it will be better than when we went in June 2011. We didn't have rain then, but temps were mid-90's every day and even hit high 90's a few of them.

Yes there is a June Facebook group. Matter of fact there are FB groups for most months I am in in few. It's fun. Most people update daily there instead of here because its easier, and most times nicer.

Hope you have a great trip, too!

Got back from our trip a few days ago. Stayed at the Swan for 5 nights before our 4 nights at BLT. While they didn't say that we had been upgraded, I'm thinking we must have been upgraded to a resort view. Surely, standard view isn't this nice (looking out of our window from left to right):

Great to here!

Our flight leaves O'hare in a little under 11 hours!

The forecast for the next week isn't looking great, but not that bad. Hopefully it just a few quick showers!

I haven't come across any active fan pages...just the official Swan/Dolphin facebook page.

The AAA rate is often the lowest rate around, but keep checking back here. New specials and offers are added all the time.

It's also worthwhile to sign up for their newsletter (look for box on right side of the offers page).

Last week I booked the Swan for 6 nights in October. The best rate currently available was the AAA rate for me (there was also a 6th night free special). I will keep checking the site though! Thanks for the tip on the newsletter.
