    I will say the beds at CR are extremely comfortable. All the values and moderates (except CSR) have full beds whereas all deluxe and CSR have queen beds (for two beds in the room). Size matters the most to me, the more I have the more comfortable I am.

    The Swan has the comfiest beds ever and duvet. It is not a true WDW hotel but it is on site and very nice theme. We got the nurse discount. They also have one for teachers. I have not found any other on site hotels as comfortable yet.
    We are trying boardwalk villa this time. I am a bit nervous after reading some reviews.

    Last year I spent a night at the ASMu (which I loved btw for a value!) prior to checking into the BLT for my stay. The mattress and pillows were night and day. We all know that disney charges ridiculous prices for their delux resorts compared to standard luxury hotel prices, but you do get better quality rooms as part of the price. Not just the mattress and pillow, but even the dressers and other furniture seemed better quality than the ASMu.

    I would hope if I was paying $550 a night compared to $107 I would get nicer furnishings. I think what makes a nice mattress is to some point subjective. However, I would think the rest of the furnishings at BLT would be more upscale than those at ASMu.

    We just returned from the CR, & I was surprised at how comfortable the beds & pillows were!

    Our previous stays have been at FW cabins, WL, & CBR.

    Even DH commented on how comfortable the beds were at CR. They were probably some of the most comfortable hotel or condo beds in which we've ever slept.

    FWIW, the comforters at POR are all brand new. They changed them with the room refurbishments because all of the color schemes changed with the new refurbishments. They are the comforter style though, not the duvets.

    And for PP - I used to work in an upper scale chain hotel that had comforters and they were laundered once every 90 days which is industry standard. Of course, if someone spilled something on them or whatever, it would be laundered immediately. As for duvets, hotels do them differently. Some will change them after each guest, some don't. But generally, they are changed more frequently since they are easy to launder.

    Hi
    The most comfortable beds that we had so far were WL, AKL and CSR. Pop got new mattresses last year and they were hard as a rock. We had to change resorts. We had backaches and couldn't sleep.

    Has anyone stayed at the POR: Royal Guest Rooms? How are the beds and linens there?

    Also, only washing a bedspread every three months?! They don't wash them between guests? That's...kind of disturbing.

    POR was very comfortable to me. I'm not super picky, though. The bedspreads were very heavy, we usually pulled them off.

    ok, so i know that they don't change the bedspreads very often (disgusting really) but what i am wondering is if there is an extra blanket in the room and if IT gets laundered after every use? because i may want to pull the bedspread off, but will probably need some blanket! or can you get an extra (clean!!!) blanket from the front desk? while i get that most hotels don't clean their bedspreads after every use, i still think it's pretty gross and don't really want to use it!

    Oh, I never really thought about that!! That is gross when you think about it!!! I think they should at least be required to wash the bedspread after a guest checks out.

    I've read a lot of conflicting information on whether or not Disney changes the bedspread after each guest. I rrrrreally hope so though, because not changing it IS gross.

    You could always bring a spare blanket or duvet from home if you're driving, though?

    I'd be tempted, except I hate to change the comforter in a Royal Guest room just because of how cool it looks! I wonder if they use the same sheets/beds as in the rest of the resort- they most likely do, I imagine.

    we stayed at AKV one weel and then added an extra night at allstar movies to the end of the stay. I could tell a huge difference in the beds (and the towels).

    I felt much more comfortable in the AKV bed.

    3 years ago, at the Poly, the beds were quite comfy. Last year, the bed at the Poly was atrocious, I even spied a plywood board poking out from underneath the mattress. Our recent stay at POR in a Royal Guest Room, the bed was okay but I think it was a bit of a shock to the system having to share a queen with the hubs. I swear someone needs to invent a barrier that raises up between the two sides -- a soundproof one would be even better. :thumbsup2 The Beach Club was fine both times we stayed there, comfy for a queen. I do prefer duvets.

    It's luck of the draw with these things though, isn't it? Comfort is subjective, as someone already mentioned. And even within a resort, a lot will depend on how new a mattress is and the amount of "previous occupants" -- and now I'd best stop thinking about this before I :crazy2: myself out.

    I take the bedspread off of the bed and ask for extra blankets.:thumbsup2
