The trees and the "lead" curtains worked good for us for sleeping in.

It was great for easy access to the stairs and to get to the pool and water taxi. I would prefer tower 3 to any others for this.

And we will request this area and the same room next time.

Also the fitness center and Chop Chop were really close.

From 1733 you can see from Dudley Do Right to the parking garage. You can see the Hulk while laying in bed. HRH is visible in the distance. Look down and you see the waterway and the water taxis continually taking folks back and forth.

From the info in this thread and the RPH map,
Tower 3 is closest to the boat
Tower 1 is closest to the walkway

Thanks! I just called and changed my reservation to RPH and I asked if I could put a room request on my reservation and the lady said "Yes, we try to accommodate all of our guests requests" so I went for it and asked for 1733 or a room with a view of Hulk. I hope it works out for us.

It is my favorite room. You have the stairs right outside your door that lets out on to the walkway to IOA. Its the farthest from the elevator so hall noise is minimal, but it is the closest to the park and you can hear the muffled Hulk and they start up early.

I SOOOO agree. 1733 wasn't available when we were there last summer, but we had 1633 and it was just as good. I LOVE awakening to the muffled sounds of the Hulk!
We found the room to be so quiet since it was at the end of the hall. I also LOVE the room darkening drapes they have at the RPR.

Regarding Rm 1733. Is it a standard room?

Room 1733

I know that this room is a standard room, but would anyone know if it is connected to a King room. We have two families going and we want to stay together. If not, do you know of the best room that have a standard queen and a standard king room connected.

Also, are all the rooms in Tower 1 on the 6th or 7th floor good rooms?

Thanks.

Last summer we stayed in Tower 1 and had a lovely view of the waterway and the park. The only thing is it was quite a hike to the pool/water taxi, which we loved. I haven't heard anything about the views in Tower 3, which is closer to the dock. Can anyone describe the room views there for me? We're returning this summer and I'd like to request my room assignment.

Just got back from RPR

I couldn't believe when I arrived at Royal Pacific and actually got the first room on the list of room requests that I faxed them 3 days before my arrival! When I went to WDW I did the same thing but when we checked in they said they never got my fax and weren't at all receptive to my preferences. Anyway, we stayed in room 1733 at RPR and loved it! A BIG thanks to all who advised me to take that one! It was on the top floor with a perfect view of the park, with the Hulk in plain sight. If you looked down you could see the walkway and the waterway where the boats passed by. Lovely view! It was the first time in my whole life that I didn't hear another hotel guest while we were in the room (quiet!). Each morning we went right down the stairs (door to stairs right outside our door) onto the walkway, then either went over to the water taxi or walked to the parks. Since most people use the elevators there wasn't any traffic going past our door. It was also convenient going down the stairs to the pool, which was right around the corner once you got outside. 1733 was perfect for us.
