    Hotel Saba has had some difficulties starting with the original general contractor going bankrupt (for reasons not related to the hotel) and continuing with design and engineering flaws that had to be fixed. It should have been completed by now, but it will be very nice when it is done. The "conference center" is not attached to the hotel. The conference center is immediately adjacent to the Town Hall, the hotel is across the street. But it is the same owner for both projects.

    :wub: I've been here lurking and posting now and then--just too busy to spend too much time. Hope you had/are having a great time in SoWal!

    Thanks CCK for clarifying that it's a conference center, not a convention center as first stated. The first thing that came to mind when I heard convention center was a huge facility such as ours here in St. Louis. I agree that a conference center will be a great addition to the area. I'm driving down this weekend with my sisters and will make it a point to check out this new hotel. And now that I know Rosemary Beach is having it's winefest this weekend as well, all the more reason to stop by!! :clap_1:

    Strange, but SO true. I've even paid some bills and BALANCED a checkbook...no problems. I will now happily and with great glee go upstairs and put in another load!!! I wonder if I could even IRON something while I am here? Naa...don't push my luck!

    To all - Please forgive me the convention center was typo - what time did I post that? I do believe I got too much sun at the beach this weekend.

    My special thanks to CampCreekKid for his/her informative comments. You seem to know a lot about the project...that makes me curious....hmmm.....I wonder who you are!

    Anyway - thanks for your words of wisdom.

    CCK is our resident therapist and all around "go to" whenever we need the real scoop! Convention Center is simply a term that scares us big city folk...down here it's just a "meetin' place"!!

    First of all, I'm a "she" second of all, I doubt that we know each other. Not that it wouldn't be great to know you. It is just a very small town. Your "boss" and his wife are friends of more than one of my friends, and I know a few key people involved in the project. Like I said, SoWal is just a very small town.

    Don't worry though. The gender thing is an easy mistake to make. There is no possible way you could tell one way or the other. :D

    :lolabove: This isn't the first time we've encountered the he/she confusion :confused: Not that it makes any difference, but although we haven't all met, I think it would be nice to at least identify sex. No...not whether we do or don't or with whom :floor: ...I mean male/female. I often find myself using neutrals so as not to offend. Just a thought:dunno:

    For the record, luvthebeach is a she :roll:

    Sorry Camp Creek Kid - absolutely no offense meant by "he". That was not very smartt of me. You can refer to me as he or she - doesn't matter - but I will try not to make that mistake again.

    Having coffee this morning at Amavida in Rosemary and struck up a conversation with a guy who is staying there. Talk turned to Saba and he said the Ritz-Carlton was negotiating to go in there. Anything new with this project that would confirm this?

    There is also talk lately, about a hotel going into Prominence. I guess they will still have to use Deer Lake State Park as their daily use beach access, if that happens.
