Couldn’t agree more! We are Desert Inn and Suites devotees but learnt early on that if we booked a Deluxe Room, we’d be walking a great deal further as they are right at the back of the property. We might as well have paid less to stay at Del Sol on some trips. I know to some people the extra walk isn’t a big deal as really, what’s a few more minutes when you’ve been walking all day? But with toddlers or packages, it’s really more of a mental thing after a long day. For us, we just love knowing that we really are mere steps away. I’ve often remarked that HOJO is just too far of a walk for us (and have been met with some stiff opposition of course ), but if you get a room at the back of the property, it really does add lots of time. Of course it’s all relative and what we consider a long walk is probably not a big deal to some.
