Thanks Shelby,
What you are saying makes a lot of sense except that we have traveled before, as a family, four of us in a room, for just one of our Palladium weeks. In our contract it doesn't say 2 per room. I think that, maybe, everyone has a different contract? We were in RM last year and there wasn't a problem. This is the first time this has happened and it is my understanding it is because we have a 14 yr old and a 15 yr old.

Hi all,

We also learned this very quickly, we are a family of 5 and always book a room with 2 doubles and pull out. Since the older ones got a little older we book 2 rooms. Oh well. As someone else said it is nice for the two bathrooms as teenage girls take forever lol I wish I was able to read more on line before we joined and had a little more bargaining power, ie room type (1 bedroom with 11 year old son would be nice), levels, etc
The thing that bothers me the most is that I thought by joining the club we would get a little more priority on connecting or rooms close to each other. It seems to always be a pleading war to get rooms on same floor in same building. We are still a family of 5 and would just like for Palladium to recognize that. I have thought to sit through the upgrade lecture but am still paying the initial payments and cant afford more now. But we do like the perks and have been happy during our stays. If anyone has any helpful hints or knowledge on what rooms connect in Lady Hamilton please share. Is it Deluxe to Jr suite only? This is where our problem lies as our contract is for Junior Suites.

Thanks

I know what you mean, Kathyvlad. Sometimes it's confusing and frustrating. :)

If my memory is correct. I believe the connecting rooms are a governor and jr suite (2 double beds). The one bedroom suite at the end of the hallway right hand side and the jr suite (2 beds) next door are the only connecting suites on each floor. We have had these rooms and they were fabulous.

If you look closely at your weeks. You will see that the 1 week is for only 2 people. If you are taking 4 people you would have to use another weeks, no matter what. The only way you wouldn't be using more weeks is if you had 3 people staying in a junior. The week would cover 2 people and the 3 would be the price for the extra person. Hope this helps.
We have travelled twice with our girls and both times we've been in the same suite, once an upgrade to Ambassador and the last time using a Podium Week and we had a junior suite. Each time we've only used one week. Our contract doesn't state 2 people. Again, every contract is different. Very confusing!!

Sorry I have not logged on in a bit. Busy busy month.

Shelby, Prior to joining the club we were able to stay in one room I think because my youngest was like 7. Over our last 3 visits we were forced to the two rooms and yes pay for 2 teenagers as adults so loose that discount. Our rooms have been down the hall under each other and once in different buildings. I would love to know what it would cost to upgrade to the truly connecting room but feel it would be cost prohibitive after paying for 4 adults and a child and air as we are still paying off our membership. I think we got a bad deal but it is my fault as I did not educate myself.

we have stayed in a junior suite at all the Palladiums with our 2 children in the room. we have never been charged for 2 rooms or made to use 2 weeks we pay the extra per person rate for the room it way cheaper that way
