Earning My Ears

Wondering if anyone can help me out, How convenient are the laundry rooms? And can you bring your own detergent/fab softener? Thank you in advance.
All the Courtyard rooms have Monorail view...it runs right through the middle of the Courtyard.First time at DL and the GCH this November. We have courtyard view booked. I’ve read a room near the Napa Rose elevators provides a preferable location and also think a view of the monorail would be cool. Any suggestions re room requests for the courtyard category? Thanks in advance.
Stand rooms overlook the front of the hotel...but I do know that they sell way more standard rooms than they have in inventory which is why many commonly get upgrades. There are zero guarantees, but putting in that request may up your chances of getting a Courtyard.We have a standard view booked for our upcoming trip. Prefer to be near the napa rose elevators, is that an option for standard? Had a courtyard view last time and it was a perfect location
If you are talking about the patio on the 6th floor of the DVC wing, then my understanding it that it is open to all hotel guests. You do need a room key to get into that area, though. Honestly, the view from that patio is very off to the side, so if you can go into the park to view it, you will have a *much* better vantage point.Is the viewing area for World of Color open to all guests or just those on the concierge level? I've heard varying reports from different websites. Thank you!
I have had a room off the lobby during Christmas...while you are correct it is nice to look down onto all the festivities and music...it is not so nice having to hear that non stop in your room! A lot of that noise carries into the lobby facing rooms.I just noticed you said Christmas Eve and Christmas, so I'd definitely request something near the lobby. It's spectacular and so fun to look down at the tree, carolers, Santa, and everything going on below.
I'd keep the standard room too. We usually book standard, and have been upgraded to courtyard most of the time. Last time we received a true standard room and had a view of the parking lot/front entrance. However, this room was still a decent location, still were able to get a glimpse of the monorail, and when we sat on our balcony at night we could hear faint music coming from DtD (it was actually really nice!). We'd happily stay in that location again.We are staying at the Grand Californian for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day this year. This will be our first time staying at GH. My question is would you upgrade your room view to deluxe partial view? Currently I have a standard view booked but now wondering if I upgrade for Christmas....
Thank you for any comments or insight.
There are 2 hot tubs. Also I believe the latest pool, based on my trip two weeks ago, was from 9 AM to 10 PM and the latest open hot tub closed at 9 PM. The other pools had earlier closing times throughout the day.Just thinking ... is there a hot tub at GCH? And, if so, what are the pool hours. Can't seem to find those details online.
OK, so if we want to get some hot tub time in to soothe away the park-day aches, we can't stay until closing. Good to know. Thanks!There are 2 hot tubs.
