I am in the process of booking our one night stay at the View hotel. It shows me different room options. Please suggest per your experience. Mainly looking for good view.
From the View Hotel webwsite:
"Premium view rooms are located furthest from the lobby and offer a completely unobstructed View of the Monuments below. For the best overall experience, stay in one of the Star View rooms which are located on the top floor of the hotel and offer a great view of both the Monuments below and the magnificent night sky as they are not incumbered by a balcony above."
Per RedRox, for most tourists no real difference in the views. However, if you want to take night sky pictures you want to be in a room (or walk outside of your room) farthest from the lobby area as there will be less light pollution.
Just make sure you don't book the least expensive rooms they have - they don't have a view of the valley (listed as such). They look out on the parking lot.
rsgdmd, were you in the hotel? or the cabins? All the hotel rooms have views of the valley.
rsgdmd apparently booked one of the rooms that are designated for tour bus drivers. They are indeed minimal rate rooms and not normally released to the general public.
I didn't even know you could get those.
I did not stay in one of the rooms without a view. Just noticed them while we were there.
I have stayed in one of the Premium view rooms on the second floor. The view was amazing! I personally think the extra $20 they charge for the premium view is worth it. I am hopefully going back there this year and I will be booking a Premium second floor room again.
