What is a Single Room?
A single room, also known as a standard room, when referring to hotel rooms, is a room that is only guaranteed and/or permitted to accommodate one guest.
A single room may be configured with different bed sizes, such as a twin-sized bed, double bed, or even a queen bed (though that would probably earn it the right to be called a double room).
More on Single Rooms
Even if single rooms could reasonably accommodate two or more guests, a single room usually means that it is allowed to be sold to a single guest (party of one). This may be due to the fire code, building capacity, floor capacity, or other reasons.
