Last week, we were in room 3624 (tower 3, 6th floor, room 24). The room was a pool view, king bed. Here's the view from the room:

Sorry for the quality, this is a picture grab from my video of the boat that transfers guests from the hotel to Citywalk:


Another picture grab, this one is the backside of Ripsaw Falls and Jurassic Park River Adventure building:

Okay, spent about a half hour reading through this thread....and I still have questions.

We've booked a nonsmoking, waterview room with 2 queen beds and will be arriving on Christmas Day. How full will the hotel be on that holiday? Will only the least favorable rooms be left by the time we checkin in the evening?

I've seen a lot of room requests for standard rooms. And it seems a lot of people have been upgraded to waterview when they requested standard. But what can I expect with what I booked?

My DH will have an ECV so proximity to the stairs is not an issue. A view of parks and pool would be great. Is tower 3 all club? Any suggestions for water view rooms to request?

Thanks in advance...

if you are a loews gold or platinum member, mention that when you book your ressie for the free upgrade to a pool view.

if you are not a member, go to loewshotels.com and apply for the card.
you will start out with a loews blue card. read thru that site for the background and perks for each color level.

once you file for the card, and if you have already booked your room, call the hotel direct and let them be aware you are a loews member and ask if they will upgrade you for free.

Christmas time? i have no idea, i never venture outside of my house on the major holidays.

The rooms are typically the same from floor to floor so I'd bet that 1721 is a king as well.

same view for me but just higher

i told bubba's mom i would find a way to post a pic of the view from my room.

so i "borrowed" another posters pic.
can't believe i met someone on the thread that stayed at rph when i did exactly 2 floors beneath me. wow how kewl is that !![/QUOTE]


to the poster that is interested in a view from tower 1

this is the scene/view from room 1546.
i was 2 floors up and the view was the same but at a different angle.
made you think you were close to even on the height.
