Never knew there was one in Tower 3, but there is one to your right as you exit tower one on the ground floor, and one in Tower 2 on the ground floor.Exit to the left or right [depending which elevator you are in] as you come out of the elevator, and its on your left,
Like Schumgirl said , its $2.50 each

LOL.....we did have to search for the one in Tower 3. As we had only ever stayed in 1 before we assumed it would be somewhere around the area of the pool.......so we searched.......we could have just asked but wanted to find it ourselves Knowing us it would probably be right in front of our nose and we couldn`t see it!!!

Eventually we had to ask and found out it was Floor 2. We would never have thought to look there!!!

I am so confused about which is the best room for us. First we booked a waterview but we would rather have a view of the parks so we booked a standard. Then I read the standard rooms offer crappy views of probably the parking lot etc so I am thinking of switching back to the waterview.

On the site room77 they have standards only going as high as the 5th floor but some have water view,lol....what we want exactly is a high floor with a theme park view away from the elevators.....anyone help so I can change our ressie for the third time!

site 77 has some errors.

but, it does give you locations of the rooms on the floor.


there are standard rooms on all the floors.


tower 2 probably does not have the better views of the park imo.

stick with 1 or 3 if you can.

there are standard rooms that have great views.

since this is very important to you, call and talk to a TM at reservations.
have the TM work with you on the views of the rooms that you are interested in.

Thanks mcraven for your help. I actually got some ideas from the post your room assignment thread.

Finally got through all 100 pages over the last few days!
Thanks so much for all this information we've just booked for next June and I would never have thought about getting the cooler for ice or not accepting the mini bar key etc. Great to know about what rooms to request and/or avoid (pets & smoking).
I will stay tuned in for new info.
Thanks again

That's good to note, thanks!

I assume pets are still kept in Tower 2?

When I booked I just put 'non-smoking & close to walk-path to parks' in the request box. I wasn't sure what the tower numbers were. I plan on contacting them before our stay to put in requests again.

Thank you

Good Morning

I have a question, I looked about 12 pages back, but could not find it - hope y'all don't mind me asking

We were at Universal a few years back, stayed at Portofino, and when we arrived, we asked to upgrade to concierge, and could do so, and I think it was at a discounted rate. Same room, just a key card to the lounge.

Can you do that at RPR? I would really like to try this resort, and as we are on a stricter budget, its a wiser choice for us (especially as we need two rooms). I dont want to commit to concierge right away in my booking, and just wondered if it was a possibility?

I know that the concierge is in tower 3, should I request tower three to stack the cards in my favor at a last minute request?

thanks for your help

you can add Club to any room you are staying in, Tower3 would be better especially if there are no Club Level rooms left,

I've skimmed and did a search on this thread and could not find this information.

How big is the in-room safe? I don't remember even seeing one when we were there in '08.
Will a large laptop fit?

Thanks!
