What is a Double Room?

A double room, also known as a twin room, is a basic hotel room outfitted to easily and comfortably accommodate two guests.

Though a double room may be able to sleep more than two hotel guests, it is likely the case that the hotel will only permit a party of two or just one guest into a double room, at least without adding a surcharge.

More on Double Rooms

A double room at a hotel is often configured as either one double or queen-sized bed or two smaller single beds. However, in some cases, it could even be a bunk bed or a trundle bed. As long as it can comfortably sleep two guests, the hotel can classify it as a double room.

A double room has no guarantee of two separate beds, so to differentiate, those with two beds are sometimes called a double-double room.
