This from the owners newletter:

Between the first quarter of 2009 and the first quarter of 2011 Marriott’s Grand Chateau will be under construction adding many new amenities and additional villas. Our next tower will house an additional 210 villas, with the first phase of these villas opening in the first quarter of 2011.

In March of 2011, you will find The MarketPlaceSM expanded to four times its current size. The store will offer a Pizza Hut Express, Starbucks® coffee, and a variety of convenience and grocery items. Don’t forget to buy that Marriott’s Grand Chateau souvenir! During this time, the Fitness Center will also be expanding to four times its current size and relocating to the lobby level. The new and improved Fitness Center will have all the equipment you need to continue your work out regimen while away from home. Also in March of 2011, you and your guests will be able to enjoy a refreshing beverage or grab an appetizer from the snack menu at the Lobby Bar and Lounge while watching your favorite sporting events.

The second pool will be accompanied by a Pool Bar and Grill and will be built on the fifth floor between towers two and three. You will be able to enjoy this wonderful addition to the resort upon its completion in the first quarter of 2013.

That's great to hear. Although, I'm not an owner at Grand Chateau, we recently stayed there (Thanksgiving week). I was a little disappointed at the lack of amenities on-site. I know they can't and don't want to compete with all the restaurants, etc. nearby on the Strip, but it would have been nice to have someplace to get a quick bite on-site.

I guess the second pool will be indoors. Is this right?

Charles

No, it will be an outdoor pool located on the fith floor between towers 2 and 3. For that matter, I can't think of one Las Vegas timeshare the does have an indoor pool. Not at the resorts we've stayed in or toured. I've asked twice because I have heard rumors about an indoor pool but both resort managemend and sales staff have said there will not be an indoor pool.

Does GC have Thursday check-in?

Not at this time. MGC only has Friday, Saturday and Sunday check in. There has never been mention that MGC has considered adding Thursday as a check in day.
