Well, I just caller RPR direct & spoke to the concierge & explained what happened. She told me that all 3 towers have Club Level on the 7th floor. She transferred me to the front desk mgr. to see if there was anything he could do. When I explained this to him he said that only tower 3 had a Club Level & was amazed that the concierge didn't know that. He said he would make note of my room request and hoped to see me next week.

Hi Guys,

So sorry if this is redundant...we're going 8/9- 12, standard queen, would love a I.O.A view...I booked thru Univacations before I found y'all, so no upgrade for me...BUT I'm cool w/ that So I'm pretty sure from bubba's moms excellent post I should request 1718-33 or 1740-54? Riiiggghhhttt?

I also do not want to be anywhere near pets or where pets may have been...My DH and DS have allergies and I really don't want the headache....Is there a certain area to avoid?

TIA

Mrs. D

We had 1752 last year and the view was great...You could actually hear the test runs of Hulk early in the morning. That was our wake up call.

Tower 3, Rooms 3641 and 3643 connecting. View of Luau shelter and highways, lots of greenery though, so not so bad... . I loved being in bldg 3, so close to pool and boat transportation.

Cool

Afternoon all,
This is our first visit to RPH, I have noted that someone suggests 1719-1733Odds and 1740-1754Even, are these the best rooms to go for for views of IOA and which tower do you suggest for these rooms and are these the best?
Thanks going next Feb

If I'm going to RPR in 12 days, is it too early for me to call and request a specific room? Do I just call and ask for reservations, and last question...is it best to request an area like 1718-1733 or a specific room?

Thanks

Thanks for all your advice.

Based on this thread and a long conversation with a very nice booking agent at Loews, I am booked into a standard room at RPR (it seemed to maximize my chances at a park view room, I had been considering club but tower 1 seems to have more park view rooms). A "park view" request has been noted on my reservations (and it says that I'll take either 2 Queens or 1 King).

My plan is to call the hotel directly 1 week before my arrival to reiterate the request and specifically request 1719-1733Odds and 1740-1754Even.

Thanks to this thread, I had some idea of what I was talking about when I contacted Loews.

I don't think it's too soon to call. I would request the area unless you know of a specific room you want. I requested park view at check in once and got it but I think next time I will call ahead. I'm not very picky so any view will do. We're barely in the room anyway. good luck!
