Any difference between a Grande Vista studio from a 2BDRM or 3BDRM?

    I'm looking to secure a Grande Vista studio with points for my daughter and see the options of selecting a studio from a 2BDRM or 3BDRM.

    Is there a difference?

    Thank you.

    Have been in both and they are the same layout and space. Either connected to the living room of a 2br or 3br unit. I believe the 3br units are only in certain locations like the ends of the buildings iirc.

    I can't think of an example of a Marriott where they are different other than location. Maybe someone else knows of an example otherwise.

    In Aruba at the Surf Club, the studios that are part of 3brs are bigger with a bigger bed.

    Grande Chateau. The lockoff unit of the 3BR unit we had was huge - really a one bedroom villa with small kitchen, washer & dryer, separate bedroom. The lockoff unit of the 2BR was like a standard studio.

    I'm not sure that's the case. We're at ASC now and have seen 5 different studios with one being the OF studio of a 3BR. All have queen beds and a similar setup. The studio in the Compass tower was slightly smaller because it was on the end, and it had a slightly different dresser/TV stand. Maybe some are different than others.

    But it's really a small 1 BR and not a studio, not apples to apples in my mind.

    That was my understanding, I get a lot of info from the Surf Club Facebook group so I can’t say for 100% sure from experience.. I also didn’t know that there were ocean front 3brs bc I thought all of the 3 bedrooms were in the compass building, and ocean front is lighthouse building. The layout is definitely different in the studio from the 3br than from the 2br, and I have always heard the bed was bigger. Ask around while you are there! And have a great time! [​IMG]

    Some may be different, I've seen resorts with unique rooms before that were not officially listed otherwise. But I've seen 5 studios this trip and all had a similar setup though one had slightly different dimensions.
