Spa

Anyone know anything about their spa services? My FI and I will be staying off site but would like to get a couples spa while we are in Orlando on our HM.

I am still a little confused. We have booked a Bay View room for August. Will I potentially get an upgrade with my Loews Blue card? If so, what might the upgrade be? Pool View? Deluxe view? Which would be better? We do plan on swimming in the pool in the afternoons. My kids are 12 and 9.

When we went in September, we were booked into a Bay View. When I presented my Loews Blue card (at that time) and asked what upgrade was available, they gave us a Deluxe room overlooking the Villa pool. It was awesome.
Now that we stayed at PBH six nights last year, they have upgraded me to a Loews Gold card. Hoping to get a Deluxe again for our five night stay in May

Chrissy the greenhouse spa at PBH is awesome and i highly recommend the facials. Massages are nice but the facial is awesome. Hope you have a wonderful honeymoon. Greenhouse can be found online too. Remember aph's get a discount of 20% i think it is.

Maggie if your staying bayview your upgrade is a deluxe pool view there one in the same. All poolviews are deluxe rooms. Best wishes for an upgrade. Have a blast.

Just booked for our first ever stay at PBH at the end of March. We're really excited! Got what we think is a great rate of $159 for a garden view room.

I've been reading through other posts on this thread - and I'm a little confused about the rooms that are available. If I'm reading it right, we'll get a room either in the East or West wing, overlooking the shrubs etc - yes? we requested a quiet non smoking roon, as our 2 DDs are very light sleepers - so does anyone have any idea as to where we may end up!!

Thanks!

Hello all! I really want a deluxe room...I don't care about the view...The only other thing that I care about is having the shortest possible walk to the boats or theme parks.

I have a garden view booked...& I am a loews blue member..but now that I've read about the deluxe room...I have to have it. So...I think I'm going to have to call and change my room type. I just call & ask for a deluxe room? There aren't different categories or views? Every deluxe room in the property is considered a 'poolview deluxe'? Also..I read that some don't have balconies or patios. Correct?

TIA!!

OK....COMPLETELY ignore that last post. the rep on the phone talked me into upgrading to club level. :D My DH is going to kill me..... :-)

Any info on room location, view, etc. is highly appreciated. I'm off to read this 10 page thread from start to finish once again to study up on club level. My goodness... what problems I have, huh? :D

We have a Deluxe view in June for 4 nights. I have a few?'s.

1) What kind of upgrade would we get from that with our new Loews card?

2) Any chance of getting it?

3)Would checking earlier be to our advatage or not?

Smile June22-25 Portfino

When we booked this past week we were told there were no balconies in this hotel. I asked for ground floor with a patio or balcony and we never got it. We did get the Bay view. Can anyone tell me if there are balconies? I guess it's not a big deal except it would be nice to sit with my coffee in the early morning.
Thanks

The only suite that I know has a balcony is the Presidential suite- or whatever they call the most expensive suite in the hotel.

I wouldn't want to pay that price for a balcony.........

Our deluxe room from our last trip had a great patio with a table and two chairs. Great for morning coffee and evening wine. It was room 2236.

A Garden View room in Portofino finally opened up and I got a AAA rate of $255 for 4 adults and one adult sized child..

So far, that's the best rate I have seen for a Garden View at Portofino since I missed getting the FAN Club rate of $242.

Are the Garden View rooms always on the ground floors?:D Any particular building?

ksdave,
your patio room was a deluxe, correct? I have a deluxe reserved & I don't think the views are that great as compared to having a nice patio, would you request this room ahead of time? What was around your patio? How far away were you from the pools, docks and food? Can you go on & off the patio or do you have to go out through the main door. How was the noise around? Do you know if I could call and requets this room? Do you have any other suggetions for the PBR?
Thanks, YO
