I'm trying to decide on what to book for 3 nights in early November. We own at AKV, so I can't book yet, but am obsessing anyways. We'll be on Maui at the Westin Villas, in a studio, for 7 nights prior to coming to Oahu. My husband (PhillyCPA) and I are taking his father for his 60th birthday. After 7 nights in a studio, we may all want some space. So, firstly, I am torn over a studio vs. 1-bedroom. Of course, we're also torn on the view! We were so spoiled by spot on Ocean Views at various Hilton's and Starwood's around Hawaii due to our elite status...but I'm thinking standard or island views for Aulani. But let's say we go with a studio. I notice many are angled. This means the couch cannot face the tv, correct? Trust me we don't plan on being in the room much, hence my big dilemma on spending additional points for a one-bedroom. However, if one is going to have a couch...it stands to reason it'd be nice to sit and watch TV, even if only the news at night. Is there anyway to not get an angled room via request (ie odd rooms in a certain wing for example), or does the tv move so one can view it on the couch. I really have been spoiled by suites (thanks Hilton & SPG), and a large appeal of DVC was ensuring we have a couch on vacation. I hate reading, playing with an ipad or phone, or watching TV in a hotel room bed. Also, I am not crazy to think a pool view studio (for us), and a standard studio (for FIL) for 129 points seems like a better value than an island view 1-bedroom for 132 points? While it'd be awesome to all share a nice large room, privacy really might be welcome after 7 days in a Westin studio! First world problems I know.
