Guarantee to get 2 Beds/King bed
Posted 07 June 2008 - 08:56 PM
I want to book hotels for me and my family when we will do a trip through the US this summer.
I have used HOTWIRE and PRICELINE before, but just for myself. So I always got a room with just one double bed - not enough for 2 people.
So is there a way to get a room for 2 people? And can I decide if I want 2 beds OR 1 king bed in the room?

As to bedding decisions -- they are unfortunately not for you to make. Sometimes the hotel will ask 2 beds or 1 king -- just don't expect that possibility in NYC.

Bottom line: you can always ask, but be prepared for a small upcharge or to pay for an extra room. We have always been very friendly and courteous when making our requests, but we've also not made them in markets that are notorious for large amounts of single rooms (as PP stated, NYC will require you to use Hotwire if 2 beds is a must). HTH and happy bidding!

And, BTW, there are several hotels in NYC which have rooms too small to contain a bed larger than a "double".

I am going to try to get a room for us and my two kids, and I think I'm going to throw caution to the wind. It's just one night, and if necessary, one of them can sleep in the closet and one in the bathroom. For me, the significant savings is worth it.
If I were traveling for a multi-night trip with a family of 4, I probably wouldn't risk it, but it might depend on the value.
