    So it was the Concorde, then Sheraton, then Wyndham?
    The Westin used to be The Wyndham, which used to be The Hilton before becoming the Wyndham (or the otherway arround). Before it was the Hilton it used to be Tulip Resort. Finally before the Tulip it was the Concord.

    It was never the Sheraton. The Sheraton was what is now Riu Grand.

    Now one thing I know is that what is now the Riu , was the Aruba Grand . Riu renovated and added on two additional towers for a total of three.
    Andrea has a great photo of the Aruba Grand, click on the thumbnail to enlarge.
