This will be owned by Marriott, who owns the Swan & Dolphin......formerly owned by Starwood.

So, yes it will be part of the Swan & Dolphin Resort complex. It will have its own name and brand.

This was supposed to be a done deal about 6 months ago but never saw anything announced. Courts will go and a small change to the mini golf course if it's the same basic plan. I believe it was street term was "Swolphin tower".

Interesting... not really that part of the complex though. I like how easy it is to walk from Swan to Dolphin and vice versa. A bit of a hike to transportation by comparison.

Not upset by it at all though. When not staying DVC, the Swalphin is our go to.
