Wow, That Sucks

Doing some research, I happened to come across the website for the Marriott's Grand Chateau, a timeshare-hotel near the MGM Grand on Harmon Avenue. They're building a second tower, apparently, and the felt they needed to warn guests who are paying $200+ a night to stay here:

The resort will be under construction with an estimated completion date of 2016. Construction of the second tower has begun. Construction hours will range from 4:30am-5pm M - Sa. Although noise, dust, debris and views of construction will be prevalent and somewhat severe at times, the amenities and facilities of our completed tower will be fully operational. Features and amenities are subject to change.

Uh, 2016? It'll take them EIGHT

MORE YEARS to build the thing,

working 12 hours a day, six days

a week? What's wrong with this?

Also, this room is FUG.

That website is actually misleading. The plan for this property is 4 towers and if they build one at a time it will probably take 8 years. Especially if there are breaks in construction. Tower 2 should actually be close to done right now.

The misleading part is that when they say "towers" they actually mean "wings." The tower will be in the shape of an X when it's done.

And heaven knows websites are so difficult to update that posting the notice only when each wing is actually under construction would be far too difficult. I also read that there will be gaps in construction based on sales demand. At the very least, they could have been more clear on that.
