Returned home on Saturday

I want to thank you all for the advice and information about our trip to YC. We had a fabulous stay! This was our first stay on club level and I think I'm hooked! The staff went overboard to spoil us rotten. We arrived very early (9:00am) and our room wasn't ready yet so we headed over to AK to spend the day there. When we received our text that our room was ready, we couldn't wait to get back to see it. We were assigned room 5163 which has a very nice view but no balcony. I went back to the desk and asked if there was any way we could switch to a room with a balcony. We were then assigned room 5210. Parking lot view but at least I had a balcony. However, I quickly learned that a balcony is not something we use. I wish we would've kept 5163 because this room was HUGE and it was very close to the lounge. Next time, I will know that having a balcony is not a high priority for us and will not request it.

Another thing that I learned from this trip, is check to see if a conference is going on during my stay. The Gartner Conference was going on last week and I really thought this wouldn't bother me. But, it did. It was difficult to relax and be comfortable in vacation mode with all the suits and heels walking around talking business. They were everywhere we went except the parks. I made the best of it, tried to ignore them and do my own thing.

Since we were on club level, we didn't even miss Hurricane Hannah's and never even went over to Marketplace. The breakfast items in the lounge were perfect for our needs. The snacks and appetizers were also very nice and we never had a problem getting an empty table.

We also had excellent bus and boat karma. We never waited more than 10 minutes regardless of where we were and they were never overcrowded.

We had a fantastic stay at YC and I can't decide which one I like best BC or YC. Either one is perfect for me! Can't wait for my next trip!

I am happy to hear a positive report!. We are staying BC CL next Sept. and it is nice to hear you enjoyed your CL experience. I am so excited about our upcoming stay! I agree with you about the balcony, it's just not that important to us, so we are not even requesting it. Glad you enjoyed yourself.

Glad to hear you had a great trip! Just curious, what category room did you book? We are staying GV CL next April and was wondering if the no-balcony room was GV. We love having a balcony and I was thinking that all the YC club level rooms had them. I love that I learn something new on this thread every day!

I booked standard view but I'm pretty sure the room with no balcony was GV. It had a lovely view of the wedding gazabo.

Oh boy is it WINDY here!! The storm is still hours away, but its really windy and rainy and flooded! NYC hasn't decided to close schools for tomorrow yet, but I expect that is coming in just a little bit (they have just closed NYC schools for tomorrow). They have closed the transit system down, the NYSE is closed today most businesses are closed and they are closing the holland and brooklyn battery tunnels at 2pm. EPIC storm for sure! I am just outside of zone b we haven't been told to evacuate only zone a is evacuating. My co-op is ground floor windows are even with street levels so I'm hoping I don't flood!!

Hoping all in the path of sandy are safe and continue to stay safe! praying all the first responders who have to go in and rescue those who didn't evacuate are safe!

More later hopefully the power will remain (wishful thinking perhaps)!!

Tied down in brooklyn!!

Thanks! When you live close to water they zone it... A, B, C. Evacuations happen according to the strength of the storm... zone A goes first followed by B and then C.

Hi Nannette,

Sounds like you are having a great time and missing all the excitement w/ the hurricane lol. We love the Flying Fish. The snapper was my DH's favorite meal last year.
Have a great rest of your trip!!!

Normally it's NC that has to worry about hurricanes!! We have wind and rain but nothing bad. Robyn & Nannette: stay safe. Let us hear from you. Flights will be backed up for days it seems. Hope it doesn't mess up anyone's trip.

Hey everyone. Hoping to join this board. Hopefully, will know on Thursday if we are staying at the Beach Club. We are renting points for June 1-7th. My family of 4 and my SIL and her 2 kids. Beach Club is our first choice - so, keeping my fingers crossed there is availability...Getting anxious and nervous.
