    Hi everyone. I've booked a POR garden view with a request for the mansions. I was just thinking of switching my room to a king size one. Looking at Andre's portorleans page I notice that there seems to be more king size beds in AB because they are also in the preferred buildings. I guess my question is would this decrease my chances of getting a room in the mansions? I really have my heart set on staying there. Thanks!

    We are thinking about requesting building 15, ground floor. We do have a preferred room booked. I imagine building 15 probably isn't as requested since it doesn't have any river views like building 14. We will have a car and would like to be close to the parking but still also be near Riverside Mill and a quiet pool. A view of the river isn't important. Has anyone here stayed in building 15? Your thoughts?

    Thank you. I found it. :-) Would you suggest something similar for a POFQ faxed request? (Different room assignment manager obviously)

    How does the size of POR Murphy beds compare to day beds at Deluxes? Really want to try this resort for NYE and DD will be bringing her BF so we need that extra bed which we had at BC last year but don't want to spend the money that we did last year. :rolleyes1

    But your in the Riverside thread?

    Well if your staying at POFQ, then take David Elg off of it.

    Take the info from the thread link below and use it to change the appropriate info to the right info reflective from the POFQ thread:

    They are way smaller than the day beds at the Poly. But someone with the right dimensions can fit on the Murphy Bed. I think the dimensions work for a person 5'3" or 5'5" on it.

    Oh no! That's not good:sad2:. I hope you don't have to stand in a long line to get an empty room.

    Yes, those of us using the Disboards app don't see signatures. I just realized that.

    I don't use the disboards app. I just use the regular safari on iPad or my iPhone.

    I just switched from lurking to posting. Thanks for the tip. I'll have to try both and see which works best for me.
