it is possible that you can keep your booked deluxe room and then pay for the club per night.
separate floor than club 7th floor.
you would recieve a key for that.

could be up to $100 per night to do that upgrade.
depends on the rate when you are there.

you can contact the hotel now to keep your deluxe room but add on club priviledges.

or you can do it when you check in.

Yikes! Not worth it for that price! I'll be sure and ask though just in case someone at the hotel feels like being considerably generous near the end of August and offers me a fantastic rate thanks mac!

if i read your trip siggie correctly, you'll be at the darkside in mid august?


crowds drop quickly more towards after that time period.
rates for hotels will be done then also.

i have stayed at hrh many many times.
i have seen signs on the check in counter, "ask us about an upgrade" type of thing.

the lowest i have ever seen club upgrade going for has been $50, but that was 4 years back. usually, it is about $100 a night for the upgrade.

i do know peeps that have upgraded for priviledges only.
meaning, they had their room on another floor but had a key for the 7th floor to use the club lounge.

i think it all depends on hotel occupancy level at the time.
if a person gets the total club upgrade, that frees up a standard room that can be booked by another person....
everyone wins in that situation.

the hotel moves a family to club for an additional fee and also is able to book a standard room that would have gone empty for the night.

all you can do is inquire about an upgrade for club privileges when you check in.

it doesn't hurt to ask.

all they can say is no.

You can have your travel agent convey your requests but sending an email a week or so before you go is also a great idea.

We always stay at RPR, but this trip HRH is going to be a better deal. Which area of the hotel should I ask for if I want to have the shortest walk to the parks? Do they have towers there like RPR? Thanks!

hrh has the least amount of rooms of the 3 hotels.

no towers at hrh.

they do have long corridors that break off into another corridor.

if you want a shorter walk inside the hotel, request a room near the elevators.
exit the elevator on 1st floor and walk outside to the pool area to hit the walking path to the parks.

or you can request a room that has the outside exit by the pool gate.
do ask to have your floor level on that exit.

Which email address can I send my room request to? When I booked my HrH room 6 mths ago, there did not seem to be a place for comments ( or I could have missed it) I've booked a deluxe room and want to confirm that there is a sofa bed. Do they provide bed rails for the sofa bed like Disney?

Ok, I have been rading HRH info all night and making lots of notes, but I am still unsure of how to get the room requests correct.

Pls let me know if this is correct-
first, call the general res number and put a request for room location. We are CL, I just want to be close to lounge, ool view would be ok if poss
Next, a few days out, I call the hotel directly and ask for the room assigner(?) and again ck on my request?

I see some people called months ahead to see if certain types of room, even the deluxes on cl, were avail for their future trips? Is this recommended? I do not understand how some people gt a guarantee of a room, or put down for a specific room number.

Can anyone help me understand?

Sorry to bump an older thread... but wow it seems like everyone gets upgraded to a pool view!

We booked a standard view room for next week... 7 nights. 2 of us are traveling on our birthdays. Seems to be off season with the exception of HHN. Any easy way going about potentially being upgraded?

I was just going to ask if our room had a nice view and take it from there. Haha.
