RPR Pictures!

(SnowWitch, Just want you to know I haven't forgotten you. I didn't ask for the manager's e-mail address, but I will try to find out for you this week, and will email you when I find it).



I didn't want you guys to have to wait for me to write a trip report to see the photo's, so...

I scanned and uploaded the pics to an ofoto album but unfortunately, after testing the link, I found that Ofoto now has visitors put in their email address now to access it. No biggee I suppose, they've never sent me spam, or given out my e-mail address as far as I can tell... Heck, I think signing up with a fake one might work too (winkwink-nudgenudge).

http://www.ofoto.com/ShareLandingSig...03.73808236603


There are 14 pics here of:
The Resort Map! (I can send you a bigger, more detailed one if you email or PM me)
View from the guest room
Furniture in the guest room
Construction in the new Emeril's
View from boat dock
RPR Pool
Portofino Pool (we snuck over to look)

I apologize that there are not more. If anyone has any suggestions on how I can go about getting still shots from 8mm footage, or even how to do a streamed video from it, let me know.

More later,

MY parking charge was added to my room bill every day. One day I used valet (lots of pkgs to carry). I was even carrying a case of beer. I asked the "valet guy" if the hotel minded us bringing in our own beer, he laughed and said they didnt mind at all. The next day the valet charge was added in again. I called and told the front desk it was wrong, we only used valet and they credited the room and added on the $6 daily charge.

Parking charges

Patty,
I'm glad you caught that... I shudder to think how many might not bother to check.

As an addendum, the parking charge did show up on my card yesterday, seperate from the room balance... Which is odd, because when I checked the bill that was hung on my door the morning of departure, it was already added per day on the bill, just as yours probably was.

Nope, I don't think the staff mind at all that you bring in beer/soda/food/whathave you. In fact they seem to nod and smile knowingly. The employees that I encountered there were very friendly and very genuine in their interest in you and your experience there.

In fact, if I had to do it all again, I would have gone to Walgreens around the corner first thing, bought soda, snacks, mornin' pastries, and perhaps a small disposable cooler... To use for most of the duration.

In Room Movies!!

Almost forgot, watch out for the In Room Movies, we tried to watch Goldmember and Big Fat Greek Wedding, both times the movies stopped and we called to have it credited and we restarted the movies, both times it stopped before the ending again, so we called to have them credited, the first time the movies were automatically credited, the second we had to make a couple of calls........I love being able to check the bill on the t.v. My older daughter loved to use the playstation, but keep track of the time!!! I think it was 6.99 an hour.

Aisling, havent checked your PM yet.

Patty

I can't use the link to view your pictures, Grumbada. Everytime I try, there is a different email address in the sign in spot, then it won't let me put in my email and my password.

Is anyone else having a problem?

I can't wait to see them! :D

food in the room

The hotel staff understand that most people will have food/drink in the room with you. In fact, mini-refridgerators and microwaves can be requested for your room. Charges for these are $15/nt per item requested.

Pool??

What is the Pool like?We are staying at RPH in april.
We stayed at HRH last year and were dissapointed in the pool.

It was 95 degrees and the pool looked great.When we got in it was like bath water.The entire pool wasonly about 3 feet deep.

It was hard to be refreshed in sucj=h shallow water.

Does ony one have photos of the Pool?

Question RPH e:mail address/Loews card?

Does anyone have the e:mail address for the hotel?
Plus can anyone recommend the best areas of the hotel to stay in please?
I am hoping to stay at the hotel next year, booked as part of a package and thought about contacting the hotel direct to ask for a specific view/room. Has anyone else done this or have any recommendations?

Also I understand if you obtain a Loews card you can receive free wine and upgrade - has anyone done this?


Thanks
CJ

Let's see... Where'd I put that map?....

Hi Folks,
I just received the PM's from a few of you and I apologize for taking so long to reply. I just had a death in my family and am just getting back to checking e-mail.

If you give me just a day or two, I'll e-mail that RPR map out to however asks for it... Make sure to include your email address in your message.
