Can I just double check that all the rooms described in Tower One on the 7th Floor with IOA views are 'standard' views and not water views?! When I reserve should I just request tower one theme park view? It will be our anniversary so I'm hoping they will do their best..............of course an up-grade to a suite wouldn't go a miss!!! ha! ha!

so no one has been here for the last 4 months...........
time to get the party moving here........



i'm done with staying at HRH for awhile.
booked a king suite at RPH during HHN time for this fall.

the one time i stayed at RPH in 06, i had requested tower 1 but ended up taking tower 3. That was a wise decision.


during that time i stayed there, Tower 3 was calm and quiet.
I checked out Tower 1 and just the opposite. Guess it was a full house over there, a lot of noise compared to tower 3.



When i called i asked about the pet floors.
was told there are in tower 2 on the 1st and 2nd floors.


I'll take tower 3 in a heartbeat this fall but if i end up in tower 1, i'll give it a shot and make the best out of it.


hope to see more posters come on board and talk about their rooms they had while on vacation there.

Hey there Macraven! I wish I could post & say that I have a trip planned - but no such luck. Have fun at yours & hopefully we will go back before the year is out. We stayed in Tower 3 in Nov & loved it. Enjoy!

The best way to get what you want is to tell the TM when you make your reservationist.

Have them list your preferences on your ressie.
Ask them to repeat it to you so you know for sure it has been listed.

Tell them you want a standard room but a King bed.

They might ask you if you have a Tower preference.
Tower 1 is closest to the water taxi.
Tower 3 is closest to the walk way.
Tower 2 doesn't have the best of views and is farther from the water taxi and walkways.

Both Tower 1 & 2 are good choices.

You can also ask if you can get a free upgrade to a water view.
Sometimes it happens.........and for free.


Rooms are assigned generally 4 days out.

You can call the hotel direct and inquire if your preferences will be honored.
If they state they did not receive any information on what you wanted, tell them at that time so you can have an assigned room of your choice of beds.

It never hurts to make that phone call.

Four years ago I called to follow up on a request. It was good that I did that as they had my arrival time at 7:00 pm.
I was arriving at 7:00 am.

It was easily corrected then.

We were upgraded to the Jurassic Park suite. Very nice room, tower 3, room 3700. the only problem with the suite was the one bathroom with the kids in the adjoining dinosaur themed room. but overall the room was fantastic. the view was right over the pool, we could see Hulk, Dooms fear fall and the Jurrassic park building from our window. very very nice

Hey, St. L! When I was booking mine, the standard 2 queens and the standard king were the same price on the Supersaver. I'd give them a call and see if they'll change it for you!
