We just got engaged and have been traveling quite a bit, and we found that sharing our good news has resulted in some terrific upgrades. (Just an FYI, "It's our anniversary" works too, but not as well) The Peabody was another super-snag via Hotwire. ($95 !! when rack rate was $220)
The desk was quick to offer many affordable upgrade options, and we chose a suite on the 20th floor with a balcony and corner location which offered amazing views. We also received a handwritten note with our turn down service and complimentary cocktails in the poolside lounge.The vibe here is definitely grown up, but not stuffy, and everyone we encountered was extremely helpful.
Room--Was very modern and well appointed, with a separate sitting area and balcony overlooking the pool. The bed was huge, with fantastic linens and cool lights that were motion activated at the base of the bedside table.
We ate appetizers in the lounge, which were of very high quality for hotel bar food, and also had room service for breakfast. Both dining experiences exceeded our expectations. Oh, and the bloody marys were extremely well done, as well.
The service definitely made this a special stay and we would definitely go back again if we are in the area. Watching the fireworks from our balcony was a cool bonus, Disney we thank you after all. :)
