the BC concierge rooms are located on the 5th floor, if you book standard view you will most likely have a p[arking lot view, the lake view rooms have a wonderful view of crescent lake, I highly suggest this!!!
To help get the type of room you want, call concierge directly, let them know your prefernce, that you need a daybed (not all concierge rooms have them) and that you want queen beds.
Also, if you want the Illuminations cruise, let concierge know in advance, beofre the day to set it up.... if you give them enough notice, I'd be pretty confident that they could get it for you.
The food offereings are quite different from the Polynesian concierge.
the breakfast offerings are similar, in that they have all the usual continental breakfast items, and a nice variety!
the afternoon, you will find more at the BC than at the Poly, they have pretzels, popcorn, chips n salsa, cookies, pudding cups, gummie worms, gold fish, and in the later afternoon they put out the peanut butter and jelly's and a cake.
in the evening the BC has cheese n crackers, fruit, veggie crudite, hummus (4 different kinds) and pita breads (this is new...)
then they have one hot dish form either cape may,or the yachtsman, and mac n cheese for the kids. pbj's are still out.
in the late evening, there are mini pastries and one featured cake (choc cake, cheese cake,...etc)
the Poly has the different themed nights for the evening hor'deuvres, maybe better in the evening, where as the BC is better during the day... ofcourse to each his own... everyone has likes and dislikes, and you may think differently!
is it worht the money, that question is so individual.... t ome concierge is worth the money becasue of the extra luxury, attention, and convenience. I like having someone there to call Shul'as steakhouse and tell them I am running late, or to take care of shipping a large item I purchased to my house for me.... to me, that is the added extra touches that make it worth it. as far as th lounge, I use it for breakfast, it is very convenient, as I dont want bacon and eggs every morning....
we rarely use the lounge in the eveing at all, it's nice that it is there though...
worth it..it is all in how you look at it !
