Thanks for your comments. Do you recall if the TV's were flat screen or not?

Yes they are.

There are pix in my '08 and '09 trip report.

My DH never wanted to stay at PBH because of the distance to the parks (furthest)...but, since that first stay in '08, it's his favorite now.

I wouldn't be concerned with anything you read on Trip Adv. NO hotel can please ALL the people ALL time.

PBH is a Loews 4 star hotel. And, imo, it definitely lives up to at least that. (if not, just push the * on your phone and Star Services will take care of any problems you have)

Don't cancel....you will like PBH.

Yes--TV is flat screen and to add a little something extra, they even have a speaker in the bathroom with volume control so that you can listen to your TV program even when you are...doing your business

Amenities are great and should not be overlooked. 2 comfy bathrobes hanging in the bathroom. Bathroom toiletries are from Lather and smell terrific. They even have cotton swabs and cotton balls on the vanity. A nice hair dryer with retractable cord. A Keurig coffee maker with Emeril brand coffees and teas. Best in-room coffee ever! Rooms are a nice size and the bathrooms are gigantic

The food at PBH is really tasty. We have eaten room service several times(best room service food and staff we have had in any hotel), Sal's pizza, Trattoria, and food service poolside. We have yet to try Mama Della's or Bice but plan to someday.

The grounds and public areas are top notch. Beautiful and relaxing. We love it so much we have discussed going to PBH someday just for a relaxing vacation and not even going to WDW

Ignore that Tripadvisor review and have a fabulous vacation.

Thanks Bubba's Mom

I've read the 2008 and 2009 trip reports and I feel sooooo much better about my decision to stay at PBH. Thanks for posting such detailed reports.

This thread disappears so quickly. Wish it was a sticky.

What do we need to do to get it turned into a "sticky"?

All the hotel threads seem busy, but this one! Is the price too expensive or has it gone down hill from last year? It doesn't matter because I will be there in a couple of months.

What happens is that once a thread creeps off the first page, it gets ignored and people make their own threads. This one seems to have fallen by the wayside for a bit.

Thanks! I love PBH and I want everyone to love it too! Well, maybe not to the degree I can't get a room.
