Room updates to the Galena, Ill.-based property will include: new tubs and walk-in showers, all new furniture, paint, carpet and window treatments and luxury linens.

The guest room renovations are slated for completion in April 2017. Guest rooms will still be available and discounted rates are offered at the over 250 villas on the property.
