Bon Aire section and other exterior changes to Hotel Breakers

Bon Aire coming down is a definite, there isn't any speculation there.

It will be interesting to see what they do to the rotunda rooms as they are pretty small now.

In the animation it appears that there are two doors on each floor of the lake side of the rotunda, so it is possible that each level will feature two large suites facing towards the water with each one taking a front corner so to speak. I suppose it depends on how large and/or "exclusive" they want these rooms to feel.

I'm curious as to how there are going to shoehorn an elevator in there for 4th & 5th floor access.

The rendering shows what I believe is an addition to the rotunda on the side facing the park. That is most likely for the elevators.

It appears that the elevators for the rotunda will likely drop into the hallway between the rotunda and the lobby. In the animation you can see that hallway is left blank. I assume they will either cut into or replace the Ship's Store and Island Accents to accommodate the elevators.

This weekend we made a point to get one last look around Beaches 'n' Cream, the main pool, and the rotunda since according the official website that they will all be closing "for the season" starting tomorrow, August 18th. They have a lot of work to do so it makes sense to get a jump on it.

So what exactly are the windows for in the long hallway to the lobby from the entrance that look to be on the second story?

Are you talking about the windows just inside the front door? It appears they are creating a two-story "grand entrance" space with what looks like one of the stained glass windows from the current lobby.

Just walked by the pool where it all fenced off. Contractors already working with a bull dozer.

Wow, they are really getting right to it. Does it look like the wings by the pool are closed off as well?

I'm talking about these second story windows.

There's a moving truck out there and they are bringing furniture out of the wings by the pool so I would imagine they are closed. I think I saw carpet as well being thrown into a dumpster but could have been some rugs...

I can only speak for the one side (on the right in the picture) but the second story windows go into a small "hallway" at the end of those wings. If I remember correctly the hall just sort of dead-ends there. An employee of the hotel might have a better knowledge of what is up there more specifically.

Those windows are in a hallway that leads from the main hallway to the fire escapes.

I still can't comprehend that they are removing the pool and not replacing it. They sold an entire waterpark to fund the hotel renovations at CP, and they aren't willing to spend the relative drop-in-the-bucket to replace the rotunda pool and hot tub?

Addition-by-subtraction may work in team building, but I don't know that it ever works when it comes to customer-facing amenities.

They don't need the pool... that's the point. The other pools already meet the needs, to say nothing of the fact that there's an entire water park next door. Seriously, outside of the very peak of the season, I've never seen both outdoor pools anywhere near capacity.

It was a little shocking on Tuesday to walk (well, we had to detour on to the beach) past Breakers and seeing the entire pool area being ripped out. In addition, on the sides of the building there where a bunch of old mattresses and things sitting out on the grass, obviously headed for the garbage heap.
So I guess I won't be staying at Breakers this Halloweekends. Not that this is a dig, I'm genuinely looking forward to the renovations.

Also the rotunda was completely closed off, (not sure if this was mentioned before and I missed it) hopefully they are doing a nice restoration of that part of the building.

Breakers will be open during Halloweekends, just not the parts under construction obviously.

But people gotta sleep!!

Sleep on the mattresses on the ground. I'm sure nobody would mind...

If an off-season tour were to happen, it would be great to get a tour of all the upgrades in Breakers.
