Great replies

bumping this up again.

Great replies - loved seeing the pictures

main interest is a garden view room in decent condition that is in a quiet section - great if it has a view of amusement park.

5068 is a kids suite on the 5th floor. It is the first room from the elevator. The view is of the water taxi area and courtyard.

3100 is a king suite on the lobby level. This room has a pool view but it is completely obstructed by palm trees.

More Garden View room numbers - 2 beds - standard

bumping this up - looking for standard garden view room numbers - 2 beds - non-smoking. I think I would like to be away from the elevators since I would rather not hear any traffic.

I am going in April so it's coming up quickly!! 6 weeks and 1 day to go

We were in 4087 last week. It is a standard garden view, no smoking, with a view of the water taxi area. Not too far from the elevators, but i did not hear them. It is also right near the guest laundry room, but i did not hear noise from that either. The room had pretty green bedspreads and was in good shape.

bumping again

Ok two weeks and I will be on my way to Universal.

Any more suggestions for a garden view room with two queen beds at the HRH - non-smoking? Does anyone know if any of the garden view rooms face the park?

Can't wait!!

We stayed in 5149 garden view last week for two nights. It faced the water taxis. We could not see the parks. After getting off the Disney Wonder, the room seemed like a mansion. High ceilings, lots of room. It was at the end of the hallway, so a small jaunt from the elevators. No noise whatsoever.

RyGuy or others....

You guys seem to have a pretty good grasp on some of the rooms and views. We are staying Club Level at the Hard Rock in June. What room and/or location would you suggest I request? I would want something like a pool or theme park view.

TIA

I called Loews directly yesterday to ask them if the rooms on the Club Level were "standard size rooms" or if they had any rooms that were "deluxe size rooms". The lady told me that all the rooms on Club Level (with the probable exception of suites) were "Standard size rooms".

It was a very difficult decision for me to make whether to book a Deluxe room or a Club Level room. I kind of figured (wrongly, I guess) that Club Level rooms would have at least *some* Deluxe rooms.

Now I am kind of contemplating changing my mind and booking the Deluxe room instead.

Opinions? Thoughts? Should I keep the Club Level?

deluxe club

I have read somewhere on these boards that there is 4 club deluxe rooms. You can't book them in advance, but you can request one. Its the luck of the draw. Just like you can't book a view preference with club rooms.
I haven't stayed there yet, so I don't know but logically from the layout of the hotel I understand that the deluxe rooms are located in the bends on the hotel. So it would make sense that they have some on the 7th floor.
Who knows for sure! But it would make our stay so much nicer to have one of the bigger rooms for the 5 of us!
Does anyone else know?
I have heard the same that when you call they say "no we don't" but that is because there is not a rate code or description for the central res. to see.

We are staying in the HRH in a deluxe. Any suggestions on room numbers/locations. We would like to be close to the pool and not a mile from the elevators. Are all deluxe rooms water view?

Thanks

We booked HRH CLub and were told we could request one of the deluxe rooms but they weren't guaranteed.

We stayed at the HRH last week and we were in room 6092. It was a fabulous view--pool and the parks. We only booked a garden view but we were upgraded The room was close to the elevators but it was very quiet. I believe it was a standard room but there was plenty of room for 4 of us--great room!
