Hey you all!

Im confused- Ive seen two different answers to this question. Which hotel is in front of the school? Two different times I saw the Westin and/or Comfort Suites...

Also, which one is closest to the residence hall?

thanks u all!

My wife and I are at the Sunshine Suites too, you can see the school from our balcony. It took us about 4 minutes to walk there. I guess we would be on the SE side of the school (if my bearings aren't messed up)

Bring SMU paper proving your a student and you get a discount. I got a room with 2 queens for $135. And they gave me free wireless internet access.

not staying here for the semester, just 4 nights until I move into RH. But I think We paid about $120 USD/night or something like that. Don't quite remember, I booked it about a month ago. I must say, though, I wanted to stay here to check it out as a possible place to stay semesters 2-4 and the prices they have listed for SMU students seem pretty high. Just for a Single Studio Suite (smallest one) is $1,950 + 10% service charge per month. It's nice because it's literally right next to school but that seems pretty steep to me.

Yeah that is pretty steep... but that 1,950 is US and like you said you are right next to the school, and the beach, and you have a nice pool and grill there. The staff is really nice too. Plus your wireless internet/cable/electricity is all included. The only problem I see is that it would be really hard to study in that size of a room, but what's the difference if you're accustomed to the residential hall. When it comes down to it, EVERYTHING here is steep. That's just what I keep telling myself when I buy groceries. Man..... speaking of steep I was at the airport restaurant "if you could call it that" and they charge $3 for a bottle of water. "Are you kidding me!!!" I heard over 5 people tell the clerk that while my wife, son, and I had lunch. LOL...... Then I got a sandwich and it she said regular or pressed. "Pressed" what the heck does that mean? Well it means "toasted" and they charge you a flipping $1 for it. Man that was hilarious. There is a lot of stuff down here though that is comparable to US prices, and then you have your items that are a complete %500 mark up difference. I saw a gallon of milk yesterday for $1.99 and I jumped for joy until I saw that it expired 1 day later...LOL....

Let us know how that one goes... Seriously, the Caymanian ways are a challenge for a while, but trust me when I say this, most people really find that they miss Grand Cayman after they leave. I'd start the whole journey over if I could--just to be on GC again. (And that's with all of the hassles of having to do things a different way!) So savor the time you have there. The time will fly.
