Hotel Room Types

December 20, 2009

Each Hotelier especially staffs from Front Office and Housekeeping department should understand Hotel Room Types. It is very necessary for a Front Desk Agent or Front Office Personnel or a Housekeeper to have clear concept about hotel’s room type. Sometimes guest may not understand these terms. At that time it is necessary for the front desk agent to make him understand all these terms properly. So, it is very important to have Hotel Management Training on this issue.


Today we will learn about hotel room types.Here, I am going to discuss 15 most common Hotel Room Types alphabetically

  1. Adjacent Rooms: These are more than single room. When a room is close to each other, may be divided by a wall, will be called as adjacent rooms.
  2. Adjoining Rooms: 2 rooms with a same common wall but no connecting door. This may be suitable for group tour or family.
  3. Connecting Room: As the name suggests, 2 rooms beside each other with one common connecting door inside so that guests can move from each other. In this type of rooms there are individual outdoor to enter separately. This is suitable for family with children as there is a common door to move from one to another. Connecting rooms sometimes refer to as communicating room.
  4. Double Room: A room for 1 or 2 person with one double or two single beds. In America, double rooms are called as Twin Room.
  5. Double-double Room: A room with 2 double beds or a queen bed to accommodate 1 or more persons.
  6. Family Room: A perfect room to accommodate a whole family. This could be a double-double, triple, quad or suite room. As this is especially for family so if there is a child, then Child’s cot or Z-bed will be provided.
  7. Junior Suite: A room with a bed with sitting or living area. This is also called as Mini Suite.
  8. King Room: A room with king size bed to accommodate one or more guests.
  9. Quad Room: A room for 4 persons with 2 or more beds inside.
  10. Queen Room: A room with a queen size bed to accommodate one or more person.
  11. Single Room: A room with one bed for 1 person. There may be more then 1 bed.
  12. Studio Room: A single or double room with a studio bed, a bed that could be converted to couch in daytime. In a studio room there may be an additional bed.
  13. Suite Room: A parlor or living room with one or more bedrooms connected with each other.
  14. Triple Room: A room to accommodate 3 or more person with two or more beds.
  15. Twin Room: A room with two beds to accommodate one or more person.
