Well I think you can but when returning you would have to use your room key to the door in the inside hallway.
I had a patio room in Tokelau and there is a lock on the sliding patio door , I think you can switch it to lock and close it but you cant get in it with your room key. I'm not sure if you can lock it from the outside or not because we never tried. Anyone know for sure ?

I actually don't think you can?? It is a latch that has to be turned and doesn't turn on its own. I can't imagine they would have it that way so people don't lock themselves out? Its not an electronic door? Nor is it a turn latch like on normal door knobs. I can honestly say I have stepped outside our balcony/patio many times without it locking and all I do to lock it on the inside it turn the little latch. It has nothing else?

You can only lock the slider from inside the room.

So unlike the POR your not paying more for a "preferred" room? you would pay more for the Hawaii??

You are correct that there are no preferred rooms at the Poly and Hawaii is more expensive since the whole building is club level .

I just booked Poly for Jan. 2-9. It's our first time at a deluxe! So excited. I requested a 3rd floor balcony, not sure which building is the best as of yet. I'll have to research that now.

conflicting info

We have just booked for next spring (late april), this will be our 3rd trip to the Poly, previously staying in Nuie and Tokelau, and we decided to go for club level in Hawaii this time. Our group of 3 families seems to be getting some confilcting info , so Ive come to the experts for some answers.

- I thought the whole hawaii building was club, the others seem to be getting info that the 1st floor is not??

- No balconies on the 2nd floor....correct??

I would like a balcony and thought I would request 1st or 3rd floor, so after some calls, one person was told there were balconies on the 2nd(Im 99% sure this isnt true) and the other was told that if we wanted a blacony we would have to be on the 3rd as 1st is not club/concierge.

Oh ya, I dont think it makes a difference, but 2 rooms are garden and one is lagoon.

Thanks, Todd
