Need info on the hotels - those who have stayed at any of the 6 hotels, pls advise which hotel is a better choice in terms of proximity to casino, cost per nite and room type.

Plan to bring PILs to RWS.

thanks.

I like the deluxe family room at festive hotel. Most economical for family. Not the nicest lah.
We can squeeze 5 in a room. It has a king size bed, a loft bed and a sofa bed. It can connect to a twin room. So if you are going with your kids and in laws, then the old folks can take the normal twin and u and family take the family deluxe. It is just next to Hard Rock. Can use hard rock pool.

Nearest to casino shd be Michael. Crockford is for members only. Equarius is the furthest. I have only stayed at festive. But I have been given tour of the rest. I think Equarius is the nicest.

According to RWS website, Hotel Michael is closest to USS. If that's the case, I don't think it's nearest to casino? Festive Hotel is close to casino.

My family always stays at Festive Hotel as it is the only hotel which has family deluxe room with loft bed and sofa bed.

As for cost per nite, you need to play around with the dates on RWS website. Sch hols price is a lot more than off peak period. I always book the hot deals 3D2N+multi-attraction package which actually cost less than ala-carte hotel room booking.

I think it is either Festive or Michael. To the right (facing the casino)of the casino is the link way to the hotels.. After going up the escalators, Michael is to the left and Festive to the right. Hard rock is further down after Festive.

If they are GH members, they have member rate for the rooms.

yes, Hard Rock is really dim. Kids love the Hard Rock swimming pool. The pool is open to all RWS hotel guests anyway. Festive hotel is just next door.. so it is really convenient to just walk over to use the pool.

Thanks to all for the info.

I noticed that hotel booking websites like Booking.com offer cheaper areas for exactly the same date n room type compared to RWS website.

I wonder why n can such hotel websites be trusted? Will it be better to book direct on RWS website?

Is it ok to ask hotel Duty Manager to give us a room inspection if the hotel is not fully booked that day?

I thought of making a trip to recee the hotels first. PILs are old n I don't want them to walk about too much so better to plan everything for them first.

Not sure if they will entertain you. I was given a tour in my work capacity.
