One of those director type chairs with a flat leather sling across the back. I need a chair with back support as I have 3 herniated discs, spinal stenosis, MS and more problems. Anybody recently visited and can comment on any place to sit in the room. I cannot sit on a bed with a pillow behind my back either so that is a no go. Thanks
There is a day bed, which when not made into a bed is a very comfortable couch (imho). There's also one, maybe two straight chairs (more like a dining room chair) at the table.

I just booked room only at BLT for 2/21 - 3/1!!! I did room only and kind of wanted to at the deposit but I'm really hoping for some kind of discount. We've always had a discount in feb so I guess we'll see. Of course I may have to tweak my dates a bit but I hope not!

I know she will only be able to book at 7 months out because she is using another point system to do so. How hard will it be to get a 2 bedroom at that time for all of us to stay in??

I am pumped.
Yay for your MIL offering her points . I hope she is able to get a 2 BDRM villa 7 months out .

We are staying at the CR for the first time in December and chose the tower. I was deciding between a tower TPV and BLV CL and we decided to go with CL. I can't speak for CR CL since we've never stayed there, but CL at other resorts has been worth it for us. We love having the lounge to sit and relax in and the view from Atrium Club lounge is supposed to be amazing. If CL is doable, I'd give it a try .

Does anyone know the location or room numbers of Hospitality Suites in the Garden Wing? Just trying to figure out the kind of walk we will have to get the the club lounges. Thanks

I replied to you a couple of days ago that I didn't know the room number, but that at least one HS is located right next to the covered walkway which is as close as you can get to CR. I don't know though if there's more than one, like with the Deluxe rooms which there are 3. Even the furthest room from CR would only be a couple of minutes further than the closest room. But even so, CL rooms that aren't located on CL floors can seem very far away and less convenient. Maybe you could request to be in the HS closest to the CR, but you would still have to go to the elevator up to the 12th floor.

Yeah I know I posted them but it doesn't show up on the app you might have to go online regularly or switch devices. Sorry I'm not sure that it can be fixed.

This is my dream vacation! If only I could talk DH into a split stay

Did you do room only discount? I was told that to do free dining it isn't worth it for split stay but for room only it is.

I am thinking of booking next week!!!
