Just returned on 10/31 (very depressed) - RPR room was 2710 - seventh floor - tower two - had views of the the Hulk/Doom - straight ahead was the IOA light tower and to the right you could view the Hard Rock Cafe/Live...2 Queen beds....about 5 rooms from the end of the hall....from the front of the hotel....room was to the left of the bridge. We had booked a waterview room but all they had was second floor; basically staring at tree trunks...so Joshua at the front desk promised us we would have a good view of the parks and we did. You get used to the sound of the Hulk and the screams in the far distance...

I just returned 10/29. Depressed as well, but great memories. We had room 1529. A great room with a great view. We could see the Hulk, Dr. Doom and even some HHN stuff going on at night. The only complaint about the room was the walk from the lobby. It was probably the furthest room away from the lobby. But, no big deal. Still had a great time and a great stay at the RPR!

OK, I just booked ....club room ...if I understand it right, these are all in tower 3. So i think with 3 teen boys what I want is close to the club lounge and if possible a pool view. (from what Ive read thats the better choice right? pool view versus I4?) BTW, I loved that suggestion of using the gym for showers...thinking I can just send those smelly boys down there every night before bed...does anyone know how late the gym facilities are open?

Room assignments

We have stayed at RPR 3 times in the last 7 or 8 months. They always give us a room in Tower 2. The first time was on the 4th floor with a terrible view unless you like looking at I-4. The next 2 we were on the 4th & 2nd. (2206)
and at least you could look down at the water under the bridge and see the
Hulk (very top) and Dr. Doom. For $119.00 I guess you can't complain. Actually anything is better than seeing I-4. My husband smokes so we always ask for a "smoking room". Are all of those in tower 2 along with the pets? I'd sure rather be around smokers that listen to dogs all night. (I can stay home and listen to the neighbors 4 dogs all night). Sure would like to get away from that for a few days! I don't mind Tower2. IT is a little longer walk but I always enjoy the scenery and the many different plants that are in bloom anyway. It's a pleasant peaceful walk at night. Going back this month for my birthday for 3 days (providing my boss will let me take some vacation time ) and can't wait! I love the RPR. HRH looks so pasty white and not as troical. PBH is just way too high for me and from the pictures I've seen the rooms look rather stark. Oh well , just sounding off. Thanks, K. Bailey

RyGuy, what is a hospitality parlor? I'm looking for a connecting water view room in Tower 1 or 3. I would like 2 queen beds in each room or at least queen beds in one room and maybe king in the other.

A hospitality parlor is a connecting parlor that attatches to a standard or pool view room to make a hospitality suite. They are very roomy and have a seperate bathroom, kitchen, dining table, pullout couch, desk, and entertainment area.

Just let RPR know you want connecting rooms and they will do their best to make it happen. I believe that most connectors are between a king and a two queen room but I think there are some that connect two queen rooms together.

This is our first visit to Royal Pacific and we booked a Standard King room. Can anyone help me with what we'd like to request? We are loews members (just the base plan though). I have never stayed at Universal (we are really excited! ) and I love to surprise my DH with a view of IOA I'm sure he's not expecting. Is that possible? Any help would be much appreciated!!!
