Tower 1 is best for view of IOA..... i believe these rooms face IOA: ODD #1718-1733 and EVEN: 1740-1754. Pool view i believe is: even 1700-1718. This is 7th floor...probably would be the same for all floors except the first two numbers wouldn't be 17 (tower 1, floor 7), they can be: 1633, 1533, etc....not sure how much the trees obstruct the view below 6th floor. Make sure you ask for 7th floor of tower 1 w/ any odd number (or even) mentioned above....but if you're trying to get 2 rooms next to each other, it might be harder...you may have to sacrifice either the view or 2 rooms together. Good luck!

Just returned!

We were at RPR 3541 which is on the 5th floor of tower 3, very close to Tchoup Choup's, the lobby, the concierge, the water taxi, the pool, and everything! We had a standard room with a view of the garden and a little bit of the highway. I have a Lowe's First card, and got to skip the long lines to check-in (my husband and DD were impressed). We were also offered a free upgrade to a pool view in Tower 1, but close proximity to everything is really our priority. Received complimentary cookies and milk. Front of the Line was a must in the scalding heat and suffocating humidity. Don't know how people without it existed! We had reserved an electronic convenience vehicle for my husband at each park, and we were able to pretty much do both parks in two days. However, we went back a day to enjoy things a bit more. After that, went to Seaworld, Discovery Cove, and 4 day Disney Cruise! It was really fabulous. At the RPR, we did not do Club since we had fabulous meals planned each day. Loved Tchoup Choups, Emerils, Bice, Lombards, Mythos, Margueritaville, Confisco Character Breakfast, The Kitchen, and Hard Rock Cafe. Everything was wonderful! We loved the IOA best due to the incredible theming, but the Mummy and MIB and Universal completely rock.

If I Requested....

If I requested any of the following rooms would I be ok with a standard view??? Sounds like 1733 is the most requested but DH doesn't like to be high up in a hotel. We don't like ground floor so would I be ok if I requested
floor 2 / 3 or 4 room and room #'s 19-33 (any of these rooms be ok or should I be much more specific)?? Thanks for any replies!

Standard view can be of IOA or I-4. Scroll down and read my post ( #9): http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1171705 maybe that will help....if not, lemme know.

Just got back - stayed for 9 wonderful nights in room 1725 with a perfect view of the Hulk and Dr. Doom. Great clean room with not a trace of ickiness! We could hear the Hulk being tested from early morning though, which might bother a light sleeper even though it wasn't very loud - kinda sounded like a windy day, but didn't bother us at all.

Stayed Friday and Saturday night in 3300 which is a king suite with a pool view on the same floor as the lobby. Excellent view of the Dive-In Movies. Best room for the least amount of walking.

back from my stay at royal pacific.
ended up in room 1746. had a view of dr doom and the hulk.
could hear the swooshing sound it makes in the morning.

long story of how i got to this room.
was placed in 2 others prior when i checked in and 3 hours later ended up in 1746.

was to have the pool view but went with the other view just to get my stuff in the room and hit the parks.

it was my first time at rph.
