Did anyone stay with kids in the room?
Did they charge you extra?
They claim that for a child over 3 there is a $110 charge per night
I had 2 connecting rooms with 2 adults and 4 kids. 3 kids were over 3 years old.

Each was booked as a 2 person room.

Since our concierge took us up to the room at checkin, they obviously knew how many people were staying there.

A few hours later, there was a knock on the door bringing 4 glasses of chocolate milk and a tray of cookies for my kids.

And no. I wasn't charged extra.

They did mention something along the lines of $110 or so for any more than 4 (2 per room) people at breakfast.

I think so.

They also gave me a crib and a (regular-size bed) rollaway btw (no charge).

When you make the reservation, you won't be able to add more than 2 ppl/room though.

But read through this thread, and you'll find some experiences.

I dont think I have any pictures of the crib but it was definitely a decent one.

You cant really see anything from the pictures I have from inside the room (closeups of kids on the bed etc...).

One room looked exactly like the "King Deluxe Balcony Room" on the website.

The second room had a chair and ottoman instead of a couch.

Looking at the photos on TripAdvisor, I can see now that my rooms were definitely larger than the so-called standard room. But you can see the "Deluxe" rooms there as well.

A bottle of wine in each room (one more was added at some point over the three days), a few large glass bottles of water, some small glass bottles of soda. Each room also had a bowl of fruit.

My daughter took great pictures of the fruit and sodas.
