Ok, I have been rading HRH info all night and making lots of notes, but I am still unsure of how to get the room requests correct. Pls let me know if this is correct- first, call the general res number and put a request for room location. We are CL, I just want to be close to lounge, ool view would be ok if poss Next, a few days out, I call the hotel directly and ask for the room assigner(?) and again ck on my request? I see some people called months ahead to see if certain types of room, even the deluxes on cl, were avail for their future trips? Is this recommended? I do not understand how some people gt a guarantee of a room, or put down for a specific room number. Can anyone help me understand?
