…I don’t think I mentioned it here, but I did in my trip report—(I was the one who stayed at POFQ two weeks ago )—they have changed the way they “rate” buildings at FQ now. It used to be that you paid for a standard, garden, or a water view with the price going up for each. Buildings 5 and 2 used to be considered standard facing the pool and garden facing the other way with waterview on the end.
Now buildings 5 and 2 are no longer standard for any rooms—at least that’s what the CM at reception told us. I always have requested and gotten 5 or 2 but no longer. We are only in the room to sleep so I see no need to pay for upgrades there.
What I could not get from the CM was a plain straight answer as to which buildings were which category. We were considered a standard room, and we were over in building 1 but we faced the garden. I’m not sure how the rooms are ranked now so good luck.
The new princess rooms have thrown things off a bit I guess, but I also think they have come to realize that buildings 5 and 2 are the closest to things and most requested—so why not charge more for them. I guess I can’t blame them for that.
Luckily, FQ is not spread out very far so any room is not a bad room—it’s just that we stayed farther away from the bus stop and food court than we ever have this last trip.
