    Okay, it looks like this is the place to post this burning question. I'd like to know what kind of food is available at the HRH Club level and if it's available all day long. I've been toying with the idea of upgrading. With 2 teenage boys it might save me in the long run, but I'm not interested if the snacks turn out to be something like Goldfish and Kool-Aid. Can anyone give me the low down?

    We will be staying at HRH in Nov. and needed to know if there is a catholic church nearby and their mass schedule? (I hope I am posting this in the right place.)

    Thanks! Paula:D

    I keep reading about guests being given a CD when they check in. No one ever mentions which CD! What kind of music - is it assorted, or just one band/singer? Just curious!

    Also, how loud is the music around the pool? We have a pool view deluxe room booked, and I worry about the noise.

    E.Jane,
    the CD we got last year was a variety of groups and singers I never heard of, neither did my 16 year old son. But it was rock and roll and pretty good music.
    We had a garden view, so I can't say if the pool noise/music would be a bother, but whenever we were by that area, it didn't seem loud at all, sort of background music.
    We loved HR!

    We had a pool view room last year and the music was no problem. The music is louder underwater. You'll love the pool view!!

    They change the CD's over time. I was just there two weeks ago and it was different than the one I got in February and is the third of our collection. Not sure how many they have put out. Most of the music I have heard or our kids know.

    Is there any easy way to general information on room rates for specific time periods?

    Also, does HRH play games with all the crazy discount codes like Disney does?

    Thanks

    We stayed at the HR last in Jan. '02. Had paid for the pool view and were very disapointed. The room we had was angled so that we pretty much had a eye shot of the roof. After seeing the beautiful courtyard, we wished we'd saved the extra $ and gone with that view.

    Also, very strange thing happened. The one night at 3AM an announcement came into the rooms saying "a security alarm had been activated, please remain calm and stand by for further instructions" Being our first trip post 9/11, it was quite unnerving!
    I guess this was one of the gliches in the hi-tech "smart room" and hopefully they've straightened the problems out!

    Other than that, the hotel and the trip was great and one of our most successful vacations with the kids!

    I talked to reservations last week and they told me that the Discounts for May were not out yet but to call every month until they come out and to check for specials. So I the answer is yes, they do discount rooms like Disney.

    Amy,

    Dive-in-movies are on Friday nights and the concerts are screened on Saturday nights.

    Regards

    You will want to request to be near the elevators. This is the fastest way I know to get to the pool area. Even if you're on the 6th or 7th (Club) floor, you will still be only 3 - 4 mins to get to the pool.

    I have a few questions.

    Does the HRH charge hotel guests parking?

    How can I obtain a Loews discount card. Someone mentioned that it's on a website, but they didn't give the address.

    Does the HRH have a fitness center and is there a jogging trail?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi,

    The HRH does usually charge for parking at $6.00 per day for self park and $12.00 for valet, although I have not been charged on the last two stays.

    You can apply for a Loews card at www.loewshotels.com

    The HRH has a fitness center and an excellent jogging trail.

    Here is the link to the Loews First Card Information: http://www.loewshotels.com/loewsfirst.asp

    With the Loews Card you get free access to the fitness center. Otherwise, there is a small fee (Unless staying Club Level).
