What are the limitations on the number of guests in a room?
The maximum number of guests accommodated by each room type depends upon considerations of sleeping arrangements. Room descriptions usually indicate number and types of beds, availability of a sleep sofa, and ability to add a roll-away bed. Each traveler can make their own judgement about the adequacy of sleeping arrangements and choose a room accordingly.
Before doing a room search for the hotel you will enter your check-in and check-out dates, and also enter the number of adult guests for the room. The drop-list for this entry field typically displays choices from 1 to 4, but for some hotel chains the choices only range from 1 to 2. These are limitations in the booking system, not necessarily limitations in number of guests. Review the room types available and choose one that will accommodate the number of people in your party. If you have extra guests or require an additional bed or crib, you should add that to the Special Instructions section of the booking form.
As the time for your travel approaches, you may want to contact the hotel to confirm that the type of room you require will be available.
