CYBER SALE - "run of house" room selection??

Postby midwest_couple » Tue Dec 08, 2020 3:06 pm

Hey Gang - first of all, we REALLY appreciate all of you and the information you provide.

We've just booked our first trip to Desire Pearl during the black Friday cyber sale. We are super excited, but concerned that we don't know what room we'll be staying in.

We called, and they explained that because of the pricing, we are booked under the "run of the house" category which means our room will be assigned shortly before our arrival. This feels a bit like we are about to get the middle seats in the back of the plane by the rest rooms on the plane .... while still getting run into by the drink cart every time it goes past.

Has anyone else booked a "run of the house" room at Desire Pearl and can you share your experience?

Thanks in advance.

- Desire Virgins (be gentle with us)

We have never booked "Run of the House" but have left it up to them to decide where we get placed when we have booked. Never disappointed. I think that at Pearl there really isn't a bad room just that some are better, if that makes sense. We slept, sort of, and cleaned up/dressed in the room during our trips and that was about it for using our room. It should be fine. :L

Perfect - Thank You! We've looked at the map of Pearl and can't imagine a single room we wouldn't LOVE to be in. Still, It's nice to hear from others who have put their trust in the resort and it turned out well.

We've been to Pearl 3 times now. The most recent two times, we booked with the Cyber Sale and got run of house rooms. The first of those times we got a junior suite that totally spoiled us. It was a great view and such an awesome trip too. The most recent trip the room was just a plain old room. Not nearly as nice, but the trip was fun as always. The worst room you get at Pearl is still going to be capable of facilitating the best vacation of your life.

Great to know! We are so excited to go, and of all the exciting unknowns of this adventure - not knowing what type of room was the only one that's creating negative anxiety. Your reply and sharing your experience has us feeling much better. Thank you!

As others have said, there aren't really any bad rooms at Pearl. You'll get a precheck-in email 2 weeks before you go and you can try to request a room type or number then. It has worked for us 2/3 times. We've stayed in master suites, junior suites and once in a regular room. It was great having a second bathroom in the master suite, but otherwise we didn't really care. Stairs just mean I get to watch her walk up first ;)

I hope you have a wonderful trip and know that most people would sleep in the broom closet without complaint because they have so much fun outside of the room.
