Standard rooms are 450 SF, and deluxe are 490 SF. We stayed at PBH in a standard room back in 2017 and have a deluxe room booked for September. However, since we haven't actually stayed in the deluxe yet, I have no personal basis of comparison other than knowing the dimensions!We’re staying at the Portofino for the first time tonight and checked in about an hour ago. We originally booked a Garden View Room but because we’re celebrating a special occasion we’ve been upgraded to a Deluxe room. I just wondered what the difference between rooms is?
Is the room coffee still Keurig and can I request as much as I want even if it is 10 per day for the 3 of us?
Do the regular rooms have a fridge and how big (in terms of size of milk carton that will fit)? We will probably make a short grocery stop.
Laundry - is the price per piece or do they have a per bag rate? I do wish they had a self-serve laundry - 5 days in August we will go through our clothes like crazy.
As noted above the deluxe rooms are a little larger. The deluxe room has separate tub and shower. Very nice as some family members like showers some like baths.We’re staying at the Portofino for the first time tonight and checked in about an hour ago.

Depending on height of the quart milk containers you might be able to fit two of those in the door. There is a bar there to stabilize things in door. I would make sure to get them with screw on tops just in case there is a problem you can lay them on the side.So we could fit a couple quart size milks in the fridge for cereal and a container of creamer?
FWIW, we brought the Parmalat shelf stable milk, in a quart box. The box shape was easy to fit in the fridge. Bonus would be that if you bought two of those, one could stay out of the fridge until you opened it.Thanks Robo56! That is a great idea to hop to HRH, we would love to spend a little time there anyway.

This is what we are doing for my husband - he uses chocolate almond milk in his coffee (to each his/her own) so I looked for small septic packs - we will pack a few in our checked bag (along with some other yummies! I have some food allergies/am gluten free so I will pack some other shelf stable foods as a backup.FWIW, we brought the Parmalat shelf stable milk, in a quart box....
I checked the wording on their site:
MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY PER GUEST ROOM:
• 1 King Bed - up to 3 guests* (rollaway rental needed for 3rd person)
• 2 Queen Beds - up to 5 guests* (rollaway rental needed for 5th person)
*Maximum occupancies may require a rollaway at $25 per day, payable at check-in. Only one rollaway is allowed per room and based on availability.
From the wording, it sounds like a requirement.
Guess I'll just have the TA try again with a different phone rep about 60 days out (or whenever AP rates are released). Don't need one, but it won't break my trip if we have to get one.They don't require a rollaway. Lots of people bring their own blow up mattress.
I didn't end up booking this ahead of time but actually did it last minute the night before. You book at the main pool towel kiosk. The Villa pool cabana was $75 for the day (7/13). It does not include anything but the cabana, which has 2 loungers, table/chairs, a tv and an overhead ceiling fan.Has anyone rented a villa pool cabana recently? Did you think it was worth it? We have a late flight home and I'm thinking of renting one for the afternoon. This would be in July.
I'm wondering if they book up completely as I think I'd rather make this a last minute decision. There seem to be a lot of them.
