No. But then, we never felt like climbing up six flights of stairs after a day in the park. We just walked back and went in the pool entrance and took the elevator up to our floor.

I am a bit concerned about the hotel's proximity to the I4. Do the rooms closest to the I4 suffer from noise from the interstate. We stayed in the Comfort Inn, LBV a few years' ago and I couldn't sleep due to the noise from the traffic all night. I didn't realise the RPR was close to the I4 till reading this thread.

When we stayed at RPR looking out the window you could see I4 in the distance but we never heard it. Its not sitting on I4's shoulder like some of the hotels do. Its a bit of a distance.

We just returned home today. We were in Tower 3 Room 3725 Club Level. Although the view from the highway was not good...we didn't care. I don't think we looked out that window enough to really care. We liked how private it was down at the end of the hallway. Although it was a long walk to the elevator. The cool part was Ellen Degenres was in the Suite right across the hall from us!!! This is a 2 queen room.

No we didn't get to see her. She arrived while we were at the park (I think on Thursday), and she was checking out today. I was on the elevator when Tim McGraw's band got on. I didn't know who they were but I knew they were musicians because they had their instruments. I looked online today and I saw a photo of his band and it was them! They were nice and goofing around. They got on the elevator and were laughing because we were like Sardines. The elevator started making this beeping noise and I said...Oh great...I am gonna plummet to the ground with an elevator full of men! LOL!!

I just returned yesterday. Stayed one night in 2353. It was miles from EVERYTHING! I guess it was my punishment for only booking one night!

I know this hotel like the back of my hand so I was able to get through to everything I needed. I DID see Ellen, though and she is soooo cute!

Rooms near the elevator

This is the first time I'm staying at the RPH. My sister and I are bringing our mom for the first time who is a healthy 78, but I don't think she'd want to have to take any longer hikes to the elevator than necessary.
Are the rooms near the elevator noisy? Is it a good idea to call up and put in a room request if you don't want to be far from the elevator. And we got a standard room. Are their any better parts of the hotel than others to request? Tks.

I stayed this weekend in 1700 which is a pool view King Suite that RPR is now calling an Executive Suite. The room was in great shape and had a great view of the pool and torch lighting ceremony. This was the first time I noticed that RPR rooms have a DVD player.
