A Breakdown of the Different Bed Sizes and Rooms in Hotels


Vacation time is something we often look forward to after months of maintaining a hectic schedule. Scheduling a time to relax, visit an exotic location, and spend quality time with family and friends helps us to recharge and experience a sense of mental and physical calm. After a great vacation, you likely return to work or school with a renewed sense of purpose and increased energy.


Of course, a huge part of preparing for a vacation is planning. You’ll have to confirm the location you’re visiting, make sure your children and significant other have cleared their schedules, and check with friends to see who will come along on the trip. Then, you have to figure out how you’ll get to your vacation destination, which can include renting a car, packing, and/or buying plane tickets. And of course, you’ll have to book a hotel to make sure you and your loved ones get a good night’s sleep during vacation.

When it comes to finding the right hotel, there are several things to keep in mind. First, you’ll need to determine how many people you’re booking the room for and the type of amenities you need. Most hotels will offer several options for accommodation depending on the types of beds in the rooms and the number of rooms you book. Here’s a breakdown of the various bed sizes and rooms in hotels.

Different Size Beds

When you’re away from home, you need a place that feels relaxed and tranquil, and your hotel room should reflect this. Your hotel accommodations should include the comforts of home along with features and perks that you can’t get at home.

Beds of various sizes are one of the amenities you can enjoy when you lodge at a hotel. The most common bed types are:

  • Double or full beds, which are larger than twin beds but smaller than queen beds. Some people think full beds differ from double beds, but they usually are the same size. Full and double beds are 53 inches wide and 75 inches long, or 4 1/2 feet by 6 1/4 feet.
  • Queen beds, which are larger than full beds and smaller than king beds. Queen beds are 60 inches side to side by 80 inches, which is around 5 feet by 8 2/3 feet.
  • King beds, which are the biggest beds you’ll find at hotels. The king bed is the same length as a queen but is 76 inches in width.

When you’re booking your room, be sure to ask whether queen or king-size beds are available. If you’re traveling with children, request full or double beds. You can also ask about the mattresses on the bed so you can get an idea of how comfortable you’ll be when you sleep.

Types of Hotel Rooms

Most hotel room types are classified by the type of beds that are in the rooms. This makes it easier to find the rooms that work best for you. If you choose a standard room, you’ll have one king-size bed in the room, or two queen beds. Smaller standard rooms offer two full-size beds. Standard rooms also have a bathroom and additional features such as a TV, desk, chair, or dresser. All the amenities are in one room except for the bathroom.

Suites are a great choice if you have a large family or you’re traveling with a group. You’ll have more space than you would in a standard room. Most suites look similar to small apartments and will feature a lounge area with a TV and couch, a kitchen or kitchenette, and room for a rollaway bed. Some suites also feature a sofa that can be converted into a bed. The bathroom and bedroom are often in separate rooms to make the suite look more like a home.

There are pros and cons to both types of hotel rooms. Standard rooms are great if you need a simple hotel room, you’re traveling alone, or you aren’t going to spend much time in your room. A suite, on the other hand, is the ideal choice if you need more privacy and you have several people traveling with you. For instance, if one of the guests wants to stay up late to watch a TV show or movie, they won’t interrupt another guest who wants to go to bed early.

No matter which type of hotel room you choose, it’s essential to ensure that you’re booking a room with a bed that is the right size for you. A bed with a comfortable mattress is also essential for a good night’s sleep, and most hotels are able to accommodate you to make sure you’re comfortable during your stay. After all, you want to be able to enjoy your vacation, so make sure you choose the hotel room that’s best for you.
