Best Room Location at RPR?

Arriving on August 2nd for 4 nights. Are there any suggestions on floor number, tower or any general locations? We're pretty flexible as to distance and elevator use.

Also, where can I find photos/maps regarding the walkway to IOA/US?

Standard, most likely. We're not room dwellers. We just like a nice place to sleep.

i prefer Tower 3 as it is close to the boat dock and one of the walking paths.


Tower 1 has a walking path also.


Tower 2 more of a walk to reach the walking paths and boat dock.
not as many views here

We like tower one. I can't remember the room number, but it's at the end of the hall so we can just walk down the stairs and be right on the walking path to City Walk. We also had a view of the parks.

Tower 3 for us, only reason like the Pool and Park view, had room in Tower 1 before ,but 3 is our fav.
you can see the path on Google earth, it takes us about 7 mins at a leisurely pace to get to Citywalk/Margaritaville,

We are a tower 1 family with a few stays in tower 3. We are currently in tower 3 and have a great room and view.

I just booked (online) 4 nights in a standard room for August. How do you go about making location requests?
