I heard that the hotel is under different ownership than the villas, so unless there is a future sale of the hotel section, the answer is no.
Yes this was one of the properties sold off to Vistana in the spin off. I believe they are converting it over to timeshares in stages over time like the Westin Cancun. I believe Westin Puerto Vallarta and Westin Riverfront are also in this bucket. Westin Cabo was another but it’s done and online now obviously.
They put quite a bit in a small hotel room, . . .
And that is my biggest concern. The Sheraton Kauai Resort's 2-bedroom lockoff is only 749 sq. ft. whereas the WKORVN 1-bedroom premium by itself is 750 sq. ft.
The 2-bedroom lockoff at WKORN is 1,230 sq. ft. (64% larger) yet it requires the same number of 148,100 StarOptions for the 2-bedroom lockoff at each location.
We stayed in a corner 5th floor studio with ocean views. They put quite a bit in a small hotel room, but it was fine for 2 of us for 5 days. Storage is limited. The finishings are great and the way they fit everything in was very impressive. The grounds have really been updated and the entire property feels fresh and updated compared to a very tired and run down hotel 6 years ago. They have not added a hot tub by the garden pool, which surprised us. The lobby has moved from the ocean side part of the property to across the road and the old lobby is underutilized. We enjoyed the new ocean front restaurant. We will definitely go back.
This may not be the right place for this question but...
The 2-bed non-LO at SKR second bedroom has a door to the living room and an en suite bathroom. The bathroom does not have a window which may be opened. I thought building codes required at least two exits from a bedroom, or is that requirement only for residential?

Are you speaking of Kauai building codes specifically?
I ask because I've been in numerous high-rise hotels in a room with the only exit being the door to the hall.
