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.

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.
