Tower 1 has view of IOA if you get the correct side...Tower 3 is pool/water view.

Had a fantastic stay, this was our second stay and hope to be back soon
I think you mean room 3713...there is no room # beginning w/ a 7. Just don't want to confuse peeps.

After reading all the replies on this thread last night I sent a request in for Tower 1 Park view and by this morning I had a reply that my request was put on my reservation. So hopefully it will be honored when we get there. It was worth a try. And thanks everyone for the heads up!

Room 3750 (Club)

2 queens (connecting door to 3748)

View of the highway - reasonably close to the lounge

TV & telephone u/s

Room ready at 16:02 (we checked it at 7:30am )

Extremely disappointed at the standard of service at RPR (apart from the Lounge) - will go back to HRH next trip

Oh tracey sorry to hear that you had a bit of a raw deal. I was torn between the two resorts and when I read things like this it make me wonder if I should have chosen HRH. I suppose there is always someone who gets a poor deal and service. Its normally me Its my 40 th on the second day we ate RPR so I hope we dont get a highway view though I have paid for a waterview. I suppose its luck of the draw. I thought being club you would have had a better view than that.Ddi you not asked to be moved?
I suppose the amount of time spent in the room is minimal and if you are like me you dont like to complain. Once again sorry your stay wasnt so good

Smile CL Question

Hi everyone! Our first trip to Universal will be December 17-22 and I can't get over how great the information is I've read on here. I didn't see this mentioned before, but I'm sorry if it has been asked and answered already: We are thinking of upgrading to Club Level since it will only add $135 total for our 5 nights and I was wondering if the CL rooms were only located in 1 tower on the 7th floor or if all 3 towers had CL on the 7th floor. Also, any suggestion on which room to get or if there is any difference? I'm not very concerned with park view vs water view, but I would like not to have a parking garage or brick wall as my view.

Thanks for any information!

C

Club level is in Tower 3 only floor 7.
not sure about rooms, but 3700 etc even numbers would be good, maybe some one who stayed could give you more info

Thanks! I'm trying to get everything written down so I can make sense of it all before I call the booking line.

Any recommendations for 2 queen club room (cannot be King), reasonably close but not on top of Club Lounge with a pool/IOA view? Is 3712 or 3722 such a room? Does anyone know which room numbers are closest to the lounge? (I would prefer less noise than those.)

Thanks.

Tink431 - where do you send the request? I booked directly through Universal, but went on the Royal Pacific website and sent a request through that. I never received a response and this was weeks ago.
Thanks!

Hi everyone
I have a standard room booked but would prefer not to be in Tower 2 as I think that is the pet friendly tower ?? (DH has an alergy)
Who/how do I send a request through to?
Any other tips for a good location for a standard room?
I would love a view of the parks but I guess that this is something you only get with a more expensive room
Thanks in advance

We stayed in room 3750. No view to speak of-we didn't care-we didn't spend time looking out the window. It overlooked the highway/convention center. The room was convenient to the Club Room.
