We normally stay at deluxes, but I have to plan a trip last minute and none of the deluxes are discounted--only available at rack rate--which is just more than I can budget for this trip. Can I have your votes on an AoA suite versus POR preferred? We stayed at PoR and weren't super impressed but that was largely because I think we really just do like Deluxes. The fact that we haven't stayed at AoA means it has novelty factor which is a good thing, but I worry going to a Value may be a mistake, especially since it is more expensive than a Moderate ($370 a night for the AoA suite versus $295 for PoR). Some of the aspects of AoA (larger room which is good for our family of 5, single bus stop, and interior hallways) seem more deluxe-like, although we might miss the aspects of PoR that are more deluxe-like (beautiful grounds and more subtly themed rooms, better on-site dining options, seems like it may be quieter than AoA). We would be going in just a couple weeks so it may be too cold for swimming, but both resorts seem to have nice pools, so I think that is a tossup between them. All thoughts are welcome (including, if you vote for AoA, which suite theme you like). Thanks! ***update*** POR is no longer available (wow, room availability moves fast when you are planning last-minute), but a garden view room at Boardwalk Inn IS available for $50 more per night than AoA. Your replies now have me really interested in AoA suites (would be nice to have the two bathrooms and extra space). But is it worth going for the deluxe? Both are within budget, so now I'm torn again!
