    The Dolphin is HUGE. I would advise diligence on the room they assign. See if you can get a convenient location- i.e. distance from elevators, view, etc. I stayed at both in the past; the feel that I got was that although both are geared for corporate functions, the Swan is a little more so. Objectively, the Dolphin offers a higher possibility of a great view. Subjectively, I think the Dolphin is much more unique and pretty.
    Por favor mantengese alejado de las puertas.

    We did make some room requests, like non-smoking, king bed and i really really want a balcony, it would be soo nice to sit outside and read in the morning because i dont have a place to do that here.

    Is it really unconvenient to be in certain area's? I will definitely be in no rush and will be exploring the property for three days while my fiancee is at a conference off property so i wont be worried about the time it take from my room to the main areas.
