Since we have reserved our week for the Chateau's first day, September 30th, I checked in with Marriott to make sure they are on schedule. Ended talking to a couple people at the service desk and even the sales people that are on site. Although there was a consensus that the opening day is good, when I asked any more specific questions, they didn't know. Someone from Marriott is suppose to call me back on Monday that has more definitive info, which I will pass along in case there is anyone else out there that is scheduled for their maiden voyage...

My sources today reiterated that they are opening on the 30th and construction is ahead of schedule. I was also informed that the pool and kid's activity center will alos be completed at that time. If I get any more, I'll pass it along.

Latest info…

The top 18 floors will become available the weekend of September 30th, October 1st and 2nd , 2005. This building is 38 stories of which around the first 5 stories are for parking. That means they will still be finishing off the lower 15 floors over the remainder of the year. The roof top pool and Jacuzzi, children’s activity center, fitness center, main entrance, landscaping, lobby and check-in area will be finished by opening day. The poolside bar will be open dependant on getting their liquor license. The beds will have pillow tops and the internet will be wireless.

Thanks for posting the pictures. We won't be there until March of next year but are really looking forward to it. This will be a very attractive building once the project reaches complete build out. I'm glad we made the decision to purchase, even if it wasn't at the absolute lowest preconstruction price.

There are no balconies at the Grand Chateau. We wouldn't want someone who had lost their rent money jumping from the building now would we?

Nope.

I don't think I've seen any of the hotels in Vegas with a balcony.

They do have a rooftop pool, though...
PT's does have balcony's. They don't care if their owners jump after seeing that the rooms do not get renovated. ;)

Some of the really old hotels have balconies.. Imperial Palace, San Remo.. and possibly a few others. I don't think they are allowed to build balconies anymore on the strip.

Marriott Grand Chateau

Just finished closing on a 2 bedroom T/S at the GC and very curious to know what the opening week would be like. Booked our vacation during week of July 4th and may decide to go or trade. Any feedback or suggestions are appreciated.

It's Going to be HOT

Yes - going to Las Vegas for the 4th, I hope the roof top pool is ready. The nights are cooler for sight seeing and fun.

We are one couple of around a half dozen people that were first to enter the Grand Chateau just before 12 PM today. We are 35 floors up and pointed towards the Bellagio. Film at 11...
Pictures......I live for pictures. :D

I'm looking forward to our first visit to the newest timeshare we own but, in the meantime I have a couple of other trips planned to look forward to.

Be sure and let us know what's up and running and what has a ways to go yet.
