We only stayed onsite once, at POR, so I have nothing to compare it with.
We were less than impressed with the room. The bedding and towels were very poor quality for a newly refurbished room. It did have ugly, gross bedspreads as well. I guess for the price we paid I expected Hampton Inn quality and it did not.

Honestly, we were surprised.

The rest of the resort was nice.

I know CSR now has duvets, because they were in place for our stay earlier this year. I'm highly allergic to down, so I folded it up as best I could and put it in the closet area. I was sharing my room with my nephew, and as he likes to sleep in an arctic freeze zone, housekeeping brought me up a couple more blankets to use.

Other than the top layer, I have never noticed a difference in bedding or mattress quality between resorts. And I have stayed at the Sports to the Poly and most resorts in between.

ITA with this. The mattresses at POR were awful for us (stiff neck, back all week) and the towels reeked. I thought the first time I showered it was a bad "batch" but it happened daily. We never had those issues at CSR.

The management at POR claims they use the same mattresses site wide. I don't believe it.

I think so.

When I stayed value, the beds were rock hard and the linens really scratchy - towels were thin and scratchy. I barely slept and wandered around in a fog that trip.

Moderates - beds are better - more my type and the linens were more along the line of what I have at home. Towels were nicer. I sleep much better there.

Deluxe - beds were great. Nice and really comfy. Linens were great and the towels were really thick.

I haven't stayed Deluxe in a year so I don't know what they are like now but I'm guessing it's the same way.
Same with value - after that 2nd trip it's been years since I've tried one. I've tried to make myself try another value resort but just don't want to be exhausted so I've been booking moderates.

Heck, there is a difference within the levels at the individual hotels and this is FACT. We were lucky enough to stay concierge level at the GF in one of the MK view honeymoon suites...The King Bed was nothing short of amazing. Even the robes were very plush and comfortable.

Our next trip to the GF we were in an outer building. The bed was DEFINITELY different, as were the robes. They were thinner and not really all that comfortable.

Yes, I am aware that 5 years had gone by, but this was a marked difference.

I will say the beds at CR are extremely comfortable. All the values and moderates (except CSR) have full beds whereas all deluxe and CSR have queen beds (for two beds in the room). Size matters the most to me, the more I have the more comfortable I am.

best sleep I've ever had in Disney has been at CSR on our most recent trip this past December.

That being said we have stayed in CBR and POFQ and both had the yucky bedspread, but matteresses were good. I left the bedspread off.
In researching I found that Coronado as a mod now has duvets, if they are down, i dont know. Cant see down being a hit in Florida. I was tempted to switch from FQ after reading this. We stuck with FQ and were happy in our choice for other, non bed reasons.

I do wonder if the deluxes have duvets, IMO if they also have bedspreads they are really over charging. Any standard delux nowadays do duvets.
The Swan has the comfiest beds ever and duvet. It is not a true WDW hotel but it is on site and very nice theme. We got the nurse discount. They also have one for teachers. I have not found any other on site hotels as comfortable yet.
We are trying boardwalk villa this time. I am a bit nervous after reading some reviews.

Last year I spent a night at the ASMu (which I loved btw for a value!) prior to checking into the BLT for my stay. The mattress and pillows were night and day. We all know that disney charges ridiculous prices for their delux resorts compared to standard luxury hotel prices, but you do get better quality rooms as part of the price. Not just the mattress and pillow, but even the dressers and other furniture seemed better quality than the ASMu.

I would hope if I was paying $550 a night compared to $107 I would get nicer furnishings. I think what makes a nice mattress is to some point subjective. However, I would think the rest of the furnishings at BLT would be more upscale than those at ASMu.

We just returned from the CR, & I was surprised at how comfortable the beds & pillows were!

Our previous stays have been at FW cabins, WL, & CBR.

Even DH commented on how comfortable the beds were at CR. They were probably some of the most comfortable hotel or condo beds in which we've ever slept.

FWIW, the comforters at POR are all brand new. They changed them with the room refurbishments because all of the color schemes changed with the new refurbishments. They are the comforter style though, not the duvets.

And for PP - I used to work in an upper scale chain hotel that had comforters and they were laundered once every 90 days which is industry standard. Of course, if someone spilled something on them or whatever, it would be laundered immediately. As for duvets, hotels do them differently. Some will change them after each guest, some don't. But generally, they are changed more frequently since they are easy to launder.

Hi
The most comfortable beds that we had so far were WL, AKL and CSR. Pop got new mattresses last year and they were hard as a rock. We had to change resorts. We had backaches and couldn't sleep.

Has anyone stayed at the POR: Royal Guest Rooms? How are the beds and linens there?

Also, only washing a bedspread every three months?! They don't wash them between guests? That's...kind of disturbing.
