We had the same room as last year 1531 which has a great view of the parks, nice to wake up to the Hulk and DR Doom testing.

However with 5 days to go we moved rooms due to an issue with our "neighbours" we got moved to room 1752 which had an even better view. Think we would ask for that one next time.

Tower 1, 5th floor, room 1509. We had a park view room. You can see some river through the trees. We were happy with our view. Every time we looked out the window, it made us excited. We didn't really see Dr. Doom or Hulk being tested, and I wanted to, but it's alright...

Smile Best Connecting-Rooms View in Tower 3?

Hi, I've read all 31 pages on this thread and am having a difficult time deciding which rooms to request.

We ordered two standard connecting rooms (DH and I have four kids, ages 6,8,10,12).

I figured it might be best to be closest to water taxi, in which case I understand Tower 3 is the route to go. On the other hand, those park views from Tower 1 look beautiful. Does anyone know whether we could get a good view (ie. not of highway, but of park or pool at least) from Tower 3 in connecting rooms, and if so, which rooms would they be for request?

Or would it be better to go for Tower 1 with a (better?) view but be further from water taxi? I've read about all the room numbers in Tower 1 with the beautiful park views, but not sure if any of them are connecting.

I've never been to Universal (or the hotels on it) so I'm not sure whether it's better to take water taxi or to walk to the parks.

any advice would be very appreciated!

thanks!

Its really not a big deal wether its Tower 1 or tower 3, as you are only talking about 30 secs between them to the Taxi.
Tower 1 lift brings you out at the islands where you go up stairs to the Lounge, tower 3 brings you out at the opposite end of the Islands restaurant, probably about 50yds difference

Wow, really? I got the impression when I called the hotel that the tower 3 was SO much closer than tower 1. (well, it's not an impression, that's actually what they said). Thanks for the clarification.

Would you in that case go with Tower 1?

thanks for the reply.

Have stayed in both, but prefer tower 3 as the room we have had the last 4 years has a great view of the parks and pool area. We very seldom use the water taxi, usually quicker walking unless a taxi is there waiting.
I would be happy with tower 1 as well, and have been there 3 times i think it is now.
Like i said its not a great difference.
hope this works, pic of RPR exit tower 1 to tower 3 exit

There are also staircases at the ends of some of the towers that make the walk shorter. Great going down, but not going up!

Thank you rpbert1! That's a big help. Do you happen to know of connecting rooms to recommend in tower 3 with a great view? (for standard).

thanks gain.

Sorry i dont, have only stayed in 3600 and its a \King Suite.
maybe someone on here could tell you ,or phone the RPR direct and ask someone who deals with room assignments, a guy called Chris has helped us out there a few times.

So I have been reading this thread for a bit to get an idea of what request is good for Royal Pacific. We had stayed here several years before and ended up with a highway view I would like to avoid that again if at all possible.

Right now we are booked in a standard king and would love a park view. and from what I have been reading the best request is for tower 1 rooms 1718-1933 odds or 1740-54 evens. I know at Disney its usually recommended to not put such a specific request for room #'s, so I am wondering if this has worked out ok for universal?

Also is it still a good idea to not only have this noted on the reservation but also call the hotel about a week before arrival to reconfirm?

Thanks!

Jennifer

Room 3750 (Club)2 queens (connecting door to 3748) Highway, reasonably close to Lounge


Any recommendations for 2 queen club room (cannot be King), reasonably close but not on top of Club Lounge with a pool/IOA view? Is 3712 or 3722 such a room? Does anyone know which room numbers are closest to the lounge? (I would prefer less noise than those.)

Thanks.
Same questions as above, so giving this a bump.

Is there still a phone number to call and speak to an RPR check-in rep for room requests? I'd called before, and the same guy I spoke with on the phone ended up checking us in a couple days later.

I've just had horrible luck with anything email-related and Lowes hotels.

On the map, I am trying to determine which room is the one I requested (1733) and whether I should keep or change it when I call shortly. Am I better off nearer the main hub (as shown by the red line) or towards the outer side of the tower? I am SO confused and anxious about this. Thanks for any insight/help/knowledge. And Happy New Year!

Just home on Wednesday, we were in Tower 3, Club floor, room 3736. This was a king with pull out sofa, all the way at the end of the hall by stairwell, pool view. Good location, not far away from the lounge, fairly quick walk to the elevator. I will say that the rooms are pretty small, I can't imagine how crowded this room would be with two queens instead of the king. Definitely smaller than HRH and PBR. The lounge CMs were great, very friendly and helpful and the food was good, and the encouraged you to "fill your plate" and go back for seconds!
