Looking for information on the Club Level, 1bedrm suites at Polynesian....
considering our January visit form the Standard Room to the 1bedrm suite (5 in group), for more 'leg space'......
Is there any kitchen stuff - micro, frig?
I'd appreciate your feedback, comments, information on this category/room.

Suites at the Polynesian are located in the Tonga building beside the GCH and at the south end of the marina. One bedroom suites start at $680 per night in value season. The main club level building is Hawaii on the main beach and does not have suites. The suites have been upgraded this year and are nice and quite large. It's not my favorite area of the resort at all and for rooms on the south side can get a lot of noise from the monorail and work areas nearby. Check Tikiman's site for complete info on the Tonga suites.

Thanks for info, Polydweller. I was told by Disney Agent when I called today to inquire about larger rooms than Standard at Poly - that they have 1bedroom suites available, on the Club Level, in the Hawaii building with a balcony. 2 queen beds in bedroom, with a door into the parlor room with a sofa sleeper. They have breakfast and afternoon 'snacks' included. Is this not correct?
Is the HAWAII building located near the 'main' area on the property - pool, restaurant, check-in, etc?

We have stayed PR Club many many times...Polydweller provided you correct information regarding the suite location. Your telephone conversation provided you incorrect information. If you select a suite you will be in Tonga building with an abbreviated club offering, but would need to walk over to the Hawaii building to be in the main club lounge with complete food/beverage offerings.

All of the previous posts were correct with Tonga vs. Hawaii. Be sure to check out Tikiman's webpage at tikimanpages.com for great information about the awesome Polynesian Hotel! It even has maps, etc. Have a great trip!

PPs are correct, there are no suites in the Hawaii building. All suites are in the Tonga building which is also CL. However, it does not have as complete food and beverage offerings as the Hawaii Building. In the Hawaii Building there is a large lounge that offers continental breakfast, snacks throughout the day, a light evening service starting at 5 and the chef puts out wonderful offerings. At night they have dessert type items and alcoholic drinks.

As for the room description, yes the rooms in Hawaii consist of a bedroom with 2 queens and a bathroom with door but they are not suites. Very large at around 470 sq ft and are sized for 5 occupants. First floor has patios and third floor balconies. There are no balconies on 2nd floor.

The Hawaii Building is on the main beach beside the the Nanea Volcano Pool and the south side overlooks the quiet pool. It is very centrally located and about 2 minutes from the main Great Ceremonial House. The north side rooms have great views of the lagoon and fireworks at night which can also been seen from the CL lounge that has two story high windows. The fireworks music is piped in to the Hawaii Building.

You won't go wrong taking a room in Hawaii. We always stay CL and love it.

Consider booking a DVC villa for more room as well, opening in late October are the Villas at Grand Floridian, and of course BLT is also close to the monorail.

As everyone has already mentioned, the suites are in the Tonga building with limited offerings. However, you do have access to the lounge in the Hawaii building.

Also, the Polynesian has only ONE 1-bedroom suite -- and there is only a daybed in the living room (not a sleep sofa) -- therefore it sleeps a total of 5 (not 6). Also, there is a refrigerator and microwave and a mini-bar type sink in the living room.

We've stayed in the one-bedroom a few times. It is on the second floor of the Tonga building the view of the Castle is very nice. Fireworks can be viewed from your balcony without the crowds getting in the way.

Book early though ... b/c with only 'one' of these 1-bedroom suites they can be hard to book.
