We had room 3415 with a (garden) highway view. I didn't mind the view.

Actually, the bedspreads aren't too bad when you are there in person. They are folded at the bottom of the beds anyway. In our king suite, we had a huge flatscreen in the main area but an old tv in the bedroom.

OUr view was out the front. It was room 1201.

We had room 3332. Tower 3, third floor. On the pool side but saw only the tops of palm trees. The folks on floors 2 and 3 below us would be gazing at the walls of the pool restaurant's kitchen.

Unrenovated. Dated decor. Tiny room. A real fridge (instead of a mini-bar) would be nice.

I will say that if you really want a pool view, insist on being on one of the two top floors. Many of the other rooms are behind tropical vegetation.

Help Please

Hi, me and my DBF are going to RPH this summer. This will be his first trip to US/IOA, and I want everything to be as special as possible. I've requested a Standard King room, and now (thanks to reading this extensive thread) know that I want Tower 1, 6th or 7th floor.....park view. My question is this..which all the posts on this thread, I still can find any with a specific room number for standard KING with park view in tower one. Can someone please help me, so I know what to request? Thank you!

We were in room 1740 (Tower 1, 7th floor, room 40). It was a standard, 2 Queen beds. Loved this room and loved the view even more. I think we got an upgraded view because the last time I booked a standard I got a view of the back of building and some bushes. I'm not complaining, the view was spectacular!

From our window we could see the water taxis go by below and when we looked straight ahead we could see the IOA lighthouse, The Hulk, Dr. Doom, Dudley Do Right and the Jurrasic Park river adventure building, oh, we could also see Dueling Dragons. It totally made my day when we got into our room and I saw that view through the window. My fiance had never been to Universal or IOA so it was something nice that got him excited for the parks before we got to them.

Believe it or not, that is not an 'upgraded view'...it's a standard view....just lucky It's all about knowing where you want to be....and that's what the DIS is for! We had room 1729 our first stay...same view...standard price.

Congrats.....glad you liked the location!

That's awesome! I will definitely make sure I request that area when I book again! I couldn't believe the view when we got into that room, I almost cried I was so excited!

Yep...they are great views!!!

I think it's 1733 (end of hall) and back odd numbers...1731, 1729, etc... I forget what the numbers on the other half of the building are....

I have them listed somewhere around here on the DIS.... but that's like lookin' for a needle in haystack

I'll try to find them and post them on this thread....where they belong.... IF they aren't already here....somewhere!

Lookit what I found:


Here is a picture from our door in our room. Tower 1, 7th floor, = 1729 (the blue dot is our room). These room numbers have IOA view: ODD numbers between 1718-1733 (1733 is 2 down from us on the end); and EVEN numbers between 1740-1754....(the other wide "top" of the "Y" )

Pool view would be opposite (across hall) from us (that part of the "Y"...)EVEN numbers 1700-1732 (I believe).

The water/road view would be ODD 1701-1755 (I think).

Our room is where the blue dot is, and that was a perfect view of IOA.....

Hey Bubba's Mom,

I'm directionally challenged so I'm trying to figure your photo out.

See if I'm right in interpreting this:

I'm going to divide what you have into 3 curves or boomerangs that make the Y.

The boomerang where your room was located with the blue dot---that whole side from one end to the other would have IOA view. Your end of the boomerang was 0dd room #s 1719-1733 and the other end would be even #'s 1740-1754.

The boomerang across the hall from you would have pool/road views and the room #'s would be even 1700-1732 on your end.....what about the other end?

Then the final boomerang that wasn't across from your room....any idea what view it had and what the room #'s would be?

Thanks!
