Hello Maui...I am on this forum several times a day, and have been for the past few months...I just can't get enough!!! We (Mom, Dad and 2 girls aged 12 and 17) are coming to Maui in August for 3 weeks.
We are staying at condos for most of our stay, but wanted our last 2 nights at a resort hotel. After asking here on TA, I decided on the Hyatt as it seems like exactly what we are looking for. I booked it at a regular AAA rate of $247.00 per night (I know there is also a $25.00 resort fee plus parking).
After reading a lot about people getting placed in rooms right beside the construction, I have gone back onto the website to look at options. So...
We currently have a resort double room for $247.00 (there is no mention on the reservation about it being an obstructed view...it says 451 Sq Ft: Lower Floors: Non-Ocean View: 1 Double Bed and 1 Queen Bed (no breakfast).....or
I can book a partial ocean view double for $263.00 (AAA)(no breakfast).....or
I can book an obstructed view for $195.00 with 2 for 1 breakfast included.
So, if I end up in an obstructed room with what I already have, I might as well book that room type on the website and save $50.00 per night. Or do I pay the extra to guarantee that I will have at least a partial ocean view??
I know none of this really matters, as we will be on Maui and that is all that counts. However...I like to plan and analyse. etc...yes maybe just a tad bit anal, but only during the planning stages. Once I am on my vacation...I am in relax mode...lol
Trying to decide if we should save $100.00 and take the obstructed view (we are going to the resort for the pools/grounds, etc...not so much the room) as we won't be spending much time in the room anyway. That would free up some money that we could spend elsewhere. We typically book the cheapest room available, and often end up getting an upgraded room anyway (although we never expect it or even ask for it...if it happens,it happens). I don't think that in this case that would happen however.
Do you think the only issue would be the view...or do you think the room would be louder...dustier...vibrating (not in the way you think) from hammer drills...and just be a pain in the you know what???
Thanks for any thoughts. Again, I know it doesn't really matter...but it is just so fun to think about it and plan. In the end, our vacation will be fabulous no matter what room we choose. Humor me...Edited: 25 April 2013, 22:01
