I stayed at the HRH two weeks ago, and I would definitely recommend it over PBH. Though I've never stayed at PBH, we walked over to check it out. The pool is nowhere near as nice as HRH, and the entire hotel was dead, almost a ghost town. HRH is always lively, and you can't help but feeling good and having a good time there. The music is not loud at all. Scooby was there in a leather jacket to greet you,and the staff was super nice. Also, we walked down a room corridor at PBH, and the hotel is starting to show wear (marks on the walls etc.) while everything at HRH is brand new. We peeked in a room at PBH as a maid was preparing it, and our deluxe room at HRH was much brighter and nicer. We loved it, and I can't say enough good things about this hotel. I made plans already to go back in May. Also, the slide at the pool is awesome!!!! Once again, the one at PBH was no comparison to the slide at HRH!!!!!!!!!!
