Now that could be my imagination, however when we stayed in the Fantasy tower last week, I could hear neighours on one side, and above. Not over the top loud, but loud enough, I have never heard anything while staying in the frontier tower.

Plus, since we often stay in the two bedroom suite, we get a balcony, so that is a plus

Just wondering if concierge level is worth it ...what amenities are offered? Thinking about it for our December trip; that is, if we can get a better-than-the-current rate...

Does anyone have an educated guess as to whether or not a discount will be offered in October for the Disneyland Hotel? Also, what time of year do they usually come out with the room discount offers for fall. Thanks so much for the input!

Hard to say with all the Carsland hype. If something comes out, it will probably be in August. I'm also keeping an eye out for our trip in October. I've booked a room only reservation at DLH for something crazy like $1500 for 4 nights (with an AP discount). Last year same time I paid $209/night post remodel. So here's hoping I get something a little better than that. Better to book if you want to stay there, you can always call and have the price adjusted.

Call and request that you be placed in the Frontier tower, that is the only tower still left with balconys. And the two room suites are the one's at the ends.

We had a three room sutie at chirstmass with two balconys, loved it, and had a great view of the fireworks on the nights they could have them. (winds played havoc at christmas)

Call today and make your request, as they assign rooms 5 days out from your arrival date.

Now, they will tell you that they cannot 100% make sure you get your request but they do try.

Have fun, the hotel is amazing and the suites, no matter really what tower you are in, are fantastic.

So excited for you JonahsMommy! I hope that you will share some of your room and hotel photos with us from your trip! (If you do, I will feature them in the Room Reviews section on Page 1.) Have a wonderful time.

The only tower with balcony's is the Frontier tower, and only for the suites for the most part, according to the CM's at the front desk that checked us into our three bedroom suite last christmas.

Now the second bedroom/room in the suite, can be used as a premium single room ,but generaly they are used as the second bedroom since there is a small hallway that connects the rooms.

Tipping at the Hotel

Can anyone tell me how tipping is usually done for the housekeeping staff at the hotel? Do you leave a tip every morning (and if so how much) or do you just tip the last day you are at the hotel (and if so how much)?

Thank you for your replies. SOOOOO excited!!!!!! I called and made my request and was told that only the Frontier tower had balcony's, thanks so much for the helpful advice. I was also told that the Frontier tower is the tallest tower, 14 floors and the other 2 towers have 11 floors so I hope we get on the 12th floor or higher so we can see the fireworks.
6 more days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I will post pictures (if I can figure out how to do from my iphone) and I will do a trip report.

On paper, it might look like 2 beds would work for us since we are 4 adults. But I don't think my mom and brother want to share a bed So I want to make sure I request the right room type. Does anyone happen to have a picture with the pull-out made up? Thanks!!
We just stayed at the Paradise Pier (1 night only) but concierge level. I requested standard non view concierge which should have been 2 queens with the futone like sofa bed but they bumped us up to the mini looking suite (5th floor room 522) This room faces the VERY FRONT of the hotel with the street view of people crossing to the Grand California Hotel & all of the back sides of the CA park. However this was just FINE for the 4 us cuz we were interested to see the fireworks show @ DL instead. The room had 2 full baths (1 stand alone shower with glass door & nice tile work and other tub/shower with same tile work & 2 sinks!) Lots of space in that bathroom! The bedroom had 2 queens and the living/dining room had a L - Shape couch with pull out mattress. (6 ft teenage son didn't want to pull out mattress so he slept on long side of couch.) My other teenager slept on 1 of the queen beds while my hubby & I had the other. We LOVED THIS ROOM!! Last 4th of July we were at the DL Hotel with a standard NO VIEW 2 queen bed in Frontier Building & brought our queen size air mattress with us. SO this mini type suite @ the Paradise Pier was like heaven to us!! Although now thinking about it - My hubby & I could have taken the living room couch while the boys in their own bed in bedroom but we didn't want deny ourselves the cozy bed!! LOL
