2 week vacation in July 2012. Family of five, so staying on site one night first week (HRH) and one night second week (RPR) more than pays for itself with four total days of FOTL privileges.

Current decision - Club Level or not? After looking at the food sticky on the forums and mentally adding up prices for breakfast alone, club level might be an option (it seems to run $100-$115 more per night). I think I fully understand how the CL works for the day of check-in, but what about the day of check-out? Once you check out, can you still access the CL for that day? Pools?

Just hoping that since the FOTL is good for both days, that maybe we could stop back, take a swim and hith the CL again for midday/evening snacks on day of check out. Dreaming?

i have stayed club at those hotels before.

you can use the club lounge until you leave the building.

once you check out, have the TM at the counter lobby give you a key for you to be able to return to the club lounge.

that hotel key card will be valid for a limited time, meaning until you leave the building to return home or where ever your next journey will be.

Does anyone know where the deluxe rooms are located? Are they garden view or pool view? Any info would be appreciated.

We're planning on going to US in early June for 2 nights before heading to Disney World for 2 weeks. We're celebrating DS's graduation and he chose HRH to stay the 2 nights. I'm wondering if anyone who is familiar with the resort hotels can tell me when to start looking for an AP rate? Also, will these boards be buzzing when they come out like they are when Disney resort discounts come out? I'm just not familiar with how Universal handles their discounts...Thanks!!!

Thumbs down Told NO Pool view Dlx

Hmmmm, I wonder why I was told there are no pool view deluxe rooms by the assistant who is helping me with my NEXT Oct, 2012 booking....I have been offered a wonderful managers rate on a Dlx room, with an upgrade to CL (due to a room deficiency on our last CL stay in FEB, 2011)....Now, the manager assistant has been nothing short of wonderful, has me blocked off and secured for a room Next October, but when I requested a pool view room, she told me they don't have any Deluxe pool view rooms
I am wondering if she meant only no pool views on Club level??? I don't know, but I guess I am leaving it up to her to choose my room, as she said she has me booked in a room close to the club lounge (which is great!)
I got a little spoiled by my view last yr....it was a pool view with a wonderful view of RipRide Rockit lit up at night, Hulk, and the theme parks....great location close to the lounge too( my son's ipod/ my IPad worked on FB and we didn't buy the Wi Fi!! ), unfortunately it was only a standard room, and not a deluxe queen, which we need this yr. for 3 different sleeping arrangements.
Those pool views sure are lovely!

We have a super early flight the day of our arrival. I assume if all goes well we will be checking into the hard rock around 10am. If our room is not ready do they notify you via text message or give you a phone number to call in and check if we decide to go to the parks? thanks

both.

they will call you or you can call them.

if the hotel was full the night before your check in, it will be in the afternoon before they will be able to get your room ready probably.

Sorry to exhaust this issue further, but I hear everyone talking about this YouFirst card. Is this the same as the Loews First card? I got that several years ago and always used it at HRH, Orlando. It gave me: Early check in, late checkout, possible upgrade based on availability, and a welcome gift. YOu also accumulated points based on stays, but only if you paid rack rate. We never did, so we never accumulated points, LOL! We Usually got the famous milk and chocolate chip cookies when the kids were with us, and the wine when it was just my hubby and I. Did they replace this with the YouFirst program?

You First replaced Loews First.

HRH is no longer participating as it's not Loews. Use the Hard Rock All Access card at HRH.

and, just so you know, they did away with "welcome gifts".

check Loews You First site for the new perks.

That's too bad. We really enjoyed those welcome gifts!
I'll look into the All Access card. But did someone say you don't get a welcome gift with this either? Or late checkout? So do I want to spend $5 for a pin and backpack, that's what I have to consider...

the one all access you get when you check in to hrh is free.

the other all access that anyone can buy on line costs $25.
When I subscribed online about 6-7 years back, i received the membership all access card, loaded aa card of $20, collector hrc pin, sling back pack.

membership once you enroll, is for a lifetime.

i'm a pin collector.
year ago last, i spent over $800 at HRC shop on pins.
and that was with my discount.

you can get upgrades if available as a room perk.
you go ahead of all other lines for a table at hrc when you show your all access card.
by that i mean, ahead of the priority line for hotel guests......

if you are not a hrh or hrc homie like me, all of the above wouldn't mean squat to you...

I was able to get an upgrade to Club level in Aug. when we went!!!!! The girl at the desk said that they weren't supposed to do upgrades anymore, but she would give me one!

Thanks to you and this thread for all the info! I wouldn't have known about the All Access pass.
We were so excited to get the upgrade!!! DS loved Club Level....especially the lounge!! DH and I did too!!
