Just got home yesterday. We had room 1752. We had a great view of the park. We could see hogwarts, hogsmeade, hulk, dr doom and rip ride rocket! It was a great room

Was this a standard view or something else. I am so worried that our view will be of the dumpster

This was a standard room, pool view is what you pay extra for, and you cant see the park from those rooms.

I called the reception desk of the hotel about 4 days before our trip and requested either tower 1 or 2 (didnt want the smoking rooms) high level, park view. We got exactly that, and the top floor too, so no noisy footsteps above us either.

That's awesome! It sounds like a perfect view!

We booked standard, I think it might have been a free upgrade to themepark view?

I thought those rooms were standard rooms. Have they changed?

Theme park view is standard. Water view is pool.

Now that I just looked at the website it reads:

Standard Guest Rooms:
Enter a tropical paradise in one of our inviting Standard rooms in Orlando, featuring plush furnishings, tranquil colors and exceptional amenities.

Water View Rooms
Enjoy all the comforts of our Standard Guest Room with a view. Gaze out at the spectacular lagoon pool or catch the breathtaking sunset over the waterways that connect the resort to the theme parks.

So maybe they changed it. I know if those rooms are available at checkin they normally give them out.

We stayed in 2109. Tower 2, first floor. Our room overlooked the croquet field...if we could see past the foilage. lol

It actually was a great location. We were steps away from Jake's and didn't have to use the elevator much.

Funny story, I had just checked in and was headed to find the room. I got on an elevator w/o realizing it was going up first. There was another guest who asked what floor, I said 1. He said "what's down there?" I said my room. He said I didn't know there were any rooms down there as he pushed for the 7th floor.

This was our first time at RPH and we loved it. I was happy with my room bc it was READY when we checked in at noon on a stormy Thursday.

Last August we stayed in tower 1. I cannot remember the room number, and would like to request the same for this year.

I know we were on the first floor. Our window looked towards the pool, although a bunch of foliage blocked most of the view(that was fine for us).
And we were 1 or 2 rooms away from exiting the side door onto the walking path that comes out by Margaritaville.

Does anyone know the approximate room number? We really liked the quiet location and ease of walking to the parks.

We are making our first trip to Universal this June for WWOHP. We just switched our reservation from HRH to RPR (the family was split half and half so I went with the savings!). I read that some of RPR rooms have a view of Hogwarts. Can anyone give me a recommendation on what room/location to request to get this view.

We are booked in a Waterview room which says: Gaze out at the spectacular lagoon pool or catch the breathtaking sunset over the waterways that connect the resort to the theme parks. So I am really hoping for the theme park view.
