Room 3636 in Tower 3 was perfect. We had a view of the pool and Islands. This was the best resort I've ever stayed at. It was a short walk to the boat dock and we had a wonderful surprise while there. The person who checked us in sent up chocolate covered strawberries and a chilled bottle of sparkling wine for our anniversary. It was a dream at this hotel. We even stayed in a renovated room which was really nice. I can't wait to stay here again. It was cheaper than Wilderness Lodge and much nicer.

The rumor was they were supposed to all be finished by the holidays....OR was that just a Tower?? I would think all of them because they started renos at the beginning of summer (end of June-ish)....

You are welcome...ya know...you can always call them and ask.... And when you check in, inquire about it. You can say you don't want to be 'near' the construction/reno...you'd like a newly reno'ed room.... they are very friendly and work with you One reason we love staying onsite....

We were just there last week Tower 3 6th Floor and didn't notice any construction or closed areas. It was nice and quiet. Everything looked like it was finished.

Just back

Just returned from a week at RPR tower 1, floor 5, room 1525 and wow what an awsome room and view. I've got tons of pictures and once I've got them off the camera and onto the computer I'll post them up for everyone. The renovations of the rooms are still ongoing as I was told all rooms will get new flat panel TV's just like the other hotels our room still had the big old CRT TV's but we did have the new POD coffee makers, the I-pod/I-dock Alarm clock MP3 player in room and new bedding color scheme. They are still doing renovations on the lobby where you check in; they actually had a large center section roped off with caution tape as they were working on the floor. An amazing stay wonderful, relaxing and FOTL I'd never do UA/IOA without staying on-site ever. If it came down to a money thing I'd wait an extra month or two if I had too and save more money for a onsite hotel. It was worth every penny!! We recieved our welcome gift the first night we were there, Paper every morining outside our door and DD got a welcome gift when we checked in that was a nice touch I'll have trip report up soon with details and lots of pics.

Room 1727

We just returned yesterday and saw no signs of renovations anywhere. Our room had the old TV though. Like Coffeeguy we had an awesome view as well.

Question Can anyone recommend adjoining rooms???????

My sister and her family decided to come to Universal with us on Labor Day weekend! I'm so excited. I love my two nieces and nephew and I will get to show them why I became a Universal convert!!!! We will be staying at the RPR (where I stayed last year and loved!!!). Can anyone tell me what adjoining room numbers to request? I already have on my reservations a request for tower 1 room 1525 (this request was made before my sis and her family decided to come with. Are there adjoining rooms around that area?? We have two seperate reservations if that make a difference. TIA!!
