Re: Confirmed for the Magic Tower at DLH, will I love it or hate it?
The rooms are just fine. I've been in that tower twice of the three times I've stayed there (the other being the Bonita/Wonder which is loosing its best feature as we speak).
You're also misinformed. The Marina/Magic tower was the second tower built in 1970 (technically third as the Sierra/Dream tower is actually two towers built interconnected, the north being the original tower).
I'm sure you could ask to be put in the renovated Dream tower. I know I managed to get a free switch to a bigger room in the Wonder tower from the Magic the last time I stayed, but I'm sure you'll enjoy the Magic's rooms. Look at it as a chance to experience something that's going away soon.
