Do PVB Studios need a 3rd view category?

Just stayed at BLT this week with a so-called "Lake View" (12th Floor). We had the inside pool facing part of the tower - When looking straight out the window, the view was essentially looking at the other side at the mirroring tower and rooms - with a sliver of the lake off to the far right. Balcony was such that the wall for the door blocked the view of the Lake altogether. Very disappointed
How about this one, second floor. Saw it before I go there, went to front desk and got dead center lake view on 9th floor.

Thanks for the tip related to touring plans - didnt know they did that. The excuse I got from the CM was that it was a "low turnover" day and it "could have been worse" .

I will add the pic (Room 8235 - Lake View) You can see if off to the right - but not from the balcony thats located on the left of this picture. I think I have you beat - I would have taken that room (7206) in a minute

I agree, not good either. I think the part that got me is second floor. If you look at a resort diagram, the same room on floors 1,3,4 is considered standard. Why only 2 Is lake view? I guess the only one that you can peek through the trees.

That's very interesting - in any case - I definitely learned a lesson!

When I stayed in the worst room in all of Poly, Pago Pago parking lot ground floor, my kid was barely walking. A duck came up to the room, and she thought it was the funniest thing ever and was banging on the glass. Even the worst Poly room is still magical.

But yea, I book lake view now.
