7019 is a deluxe room with 2 queens on the club level. The view is of the front entrance which is not so great but there is also a nice view of PBH especially at night when things are lit up.

Noone has mentioned Pool View pet rooms. Does anyone have any suggestions? We decided to pay extra for PV to try to avoid a horrible view. I'd like to get my monies worth. BTW, does anyone know, if there's a floor plan, including room numbers, online to view? That would really help.


P.S. Motherfletcher, thanks for posting a link on the sticky thread.

Just back - 3126, a pool view room without a pool view :(

Hi there,

We're just back from a 4 night stay at the HRH. We had reserved a pool view room and got Room 3126. This is on the lobby level way down the hallway toward the canal/water taxi side of the hotel.

I was seriously disappointed in the view of the pool. We had an exceptional view of a tree! Oh you could see glimpses of the pool through the tree but I really don't see how it could be called a pool view room.

After taking a look outside I think if you really want a pool view you'd have to be on the 5th floor or above, there's landscaping in the way below that.

Our room was ready at 1:30 in the afternoon and the very nice person that checked me in made a big deal about how this room had been blocked for us because of medical problems, they were keeping us away from smoking areas. We were tired when we arrived and I just didn't want to move so I dealt with the tree. If we ever stay there again I'll request one of the uppermost floors.

I think it was a letdown also because our first stay a few years ago we had an awesome view from the 6th floor.

Just stayed in 4099, a deluxe queen room with a garden view (the great lawn and the waterway). I'll try to post a pic of the view:

We switched to a PV room hoping to avoid a bad view. I hope that wasn't a mistake. The extra $100 it costs us over 5 nights would have gone a long way toward renting the cabana. We have a pet, so I'll hope for the 5th floor. The other pet floor is lower. The last time we stayed at HRH, we had a great view. Hopefully, we'll get lucky this time too.

any advice for 2nd floor

hi everyone we got a garden view room booked for oct on AAA discount through our UK AA card, 5 of us are going to share a room 3 adults and 2 kids. One of which is my mother who has a fear of heights so we have to be on a lower floor on the hotel, even if she knows she is higher she gets into a right state.

anyone got any idea what a good room # would be on 2nd floor and also what best bet would be to try and squeeze a bit of an upgrade. i have AA card, loews first card and also a hard rock all access membership, all sorta say u can get an upgrade if there is one, any idea which one to try and do it with or just lump all 3 cards on the counter hehehe

gratefull for any advice.

Rgds
Chas

7019 - Club, Deluxe Queen w/ view of the front of HRH

Room was bigger than I thought it would be - we were VERY pleasantly surprised.

And I just scrolled down and saw that Ryguy already reviewed this room!

Deluxe Queen Rooms (NON-CLUB)

I have only seen one post about Deluxe Queen rooms that aren't on club level. Any input about views from these rooms other than the garden view from #4099? That is a nice view, I'd just like to know a few more options. Thanks!

1100 King Suite-Smoking

5100 King suite, pool view. No smoking. OK view of the parks.

4100 King suite, pool view. No smoking. Laundry room on this floor. Ice machine right outside. A few palms obscure the view.

7096 - club level - view of pool and park in background

We stayed in 7096 on club. View was awesome! I will try to post a pic of the views. They are through the window so the images are a little fuzzy.


zoomed view to the left



zoomed a little to the right
