That makes sense! Thank you

Where can I go to send a fax for free ? I did check the link on the first page of this thread and it says it is $10.00 a month ?? And it had a place to add my fax number. What would I put for my fax #?

The link in the first page does allow you to send faxes for free, max 3 pages twice a day on the free service. If you don't have a return fax number, don't enter one.

Have the rooms been updated to have the down comforter and they've gotten rid of those bedspreads? I sure hope so. We arrive tomorrow evening!!

The bedspreads are gone, but there isn't a down comforter. It's triple sheeted.

Thanks so much! I'm guessing there are blankets in the closet?

We requested blankets. I don't remember there already being one in the room.

No blankets in the closet, but a quick call to housekeeping and they will bring them to your room. I like weight to my covers, so that's what I did.

Just back from POFQ- May 3-10th and we loved it!! In fact we booked a bounce back for the fall. Disappointed though to have waited on hold for hours to book and then be told only River View avail for our dates-If I keep calling is there any hope a standard will open up with a bounce back offer?? I'm not sure how those work. I literally called 17 times while on vacation….seems bit much to expect people to use precious vacation time but I finally resorted to just leaving the phone on speaker while getting ready in the room after my first few unsuccessful attempts. I just prefer the standard rooms but I don't want to pay for the most expensive view category and request standard so not sure how that is handled. They weren't helpful on the phone.

Oh, glad this came up. I would have expected a blanket to be in the room. I normally travel with my small down blanket but can't on a plane for this trip. DH keeps the air conditioner so cold that it gives me an ear ache. I know I'm going to need a blanket to keep warm in the summer! In fact, I'm trying to decide if I need to bring my winter jammies!

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm sure the bedding was sheet-blanket-sheet, so there actually is a blanket on the bed (between 2 sheets).
