I would say they are on the plush side, not to firm as that kills me also. I slept pretty well and that usually doesn't happen when I go on vacation. I own mattress stores so I am a bit spoiled.

So, does anyone think that staying in a Royal room is worth the extra cost? They sure look pretty!

I would say they are more on the plush side too. Not too hard. I slept so well while we were there.

Thanks
We were able to fit a netbook in the safe, as well as other odds and ends. I would expect those items to fit.

Sure, the closet will accommodate that. You most likely will not have as many hangers in the room as you would like-ask for more-hang whatever you can. Be sure to use the nightstand drawer for smaller stuff. I also bring a fabric organizer that hangs in the closet with multiple pockets. some folks buy a shoe organizer, but mine has clear pockets, so I can see what is inside. We usually stay for 10 days, and do laundry.
