Asking for Free Upgrades??

We were supposed to have petals in our room and a fruit platter waiting (according to Dreams) but since they didn't know it wasn't there. We got it eventually and everyone - even housekeeping - greeted us as honeymooners from that day out.

Our initial room had 2 beds - yeah that's not hot. She apologized and had someone "make" it a king but the next day they moved us into the king suite directly next door. It was ground level overlooking the ocean and infinity pool, with a ginormous patio. I don't think that was an upgrade though because we booked a suite.

Did you guys get the honeymooners banner on your door and the candles/roses the night of your wedding?
jamy- you were in the club tower? it's the newer one....does everyone in the club tower have private check in? i've been telling my guests to book those rooms but since they're more $$ ppl haven't been too responsive.

I'm pretty sure everyone in the club tower gets private check in because they didn't know it was our honeymoon at first so it wasn't like a perk for that or anything. It was cool because there was a line at the front desk that we didn't have to stand in. We just sat down at a table and handled everything, it was much appreciated after a day of travel. I told my guests to book there too but they all chose the old tower to save money. Both are nice so there's not really a bad choice, but our room was so much bigger and nicer than theirs.

All of the club rooms have balconies or patios. Only some of the old tower rooms have balconies - they have a glass door that opens with bars in front so you don't fall out, but you can't sit outside, so when we ordered room service for breakfast we ate it on our patio and they had to sit inside their room. Not a huge deal, but my bm's boyfriend was mad about that because their view was awesome but he had no balcony to enjoy it from. I believe the old tower rooms with balconies are on a space available basis. I don't think there are any other benefits to the club tower besides the check in and nicer rooms. Well, it is newer so the hallways/doors to rooms were nicer than the other wing in my opinion. My guests thought so too, when they came to see our room they were mad they didn't book there. One of them tried to pay for an upgrade to our tower but they said they were sold out.

Our TA arranged for free upgrades for us and Jay put in a request too. The worse anyone can say is no. I mean I was announcing to everyone I saw that I was getting married or that I was just married anyhow.

Vista Print recently ran a special .01 t-shirt, So I got one that read:  the Future Mrs. Sutton with our wedding date.  I plan to wear it on the plane and when we check-in at our resort. 

 

My mom said it was cheesy

We emailed our resort a couple of mths ago asking about upgrades and they emailed us back giving it to us for free! Both the wedding resort and the honeymoon resort. Just explained it was our wedding and asked for cost of upgrade. They have been awesome to work with.
