4 Perks of Choosing an Amtrak Roomette
One of the main perks of long-distance train travel is the ability to get a good night’s sleep in Amtrak’s onboard sleeping accommodation, whether it be a roomette or a bedroom. Riders love the comfort and privacy of Amtrak’s private sleeping room and being able to arrive at their destination refreshed and ready to begin their travel adventures.
While you may already know about some the basic features of the roomette, riders cite these perks as the main reasons they love booking this accommodation…
1. Think of it as a hotel room on the tracks
Equipped with a landscape window in every room, as well as two comfy seats, two beds, outlets and a fold-down table, Amtrak’s roomette is your home away from home on the train. Plus you get loads of amenities for ultimate comfort, including bed linens, pillows, temperature controls, lights, bed-side storage nooks and outlets for all of your devices.
2. All your meals are included
One of the biggest perks of a roomette – the food is included! Full breakfast, lunch and dinner in Amtrak’s restaurant on wheels – the Dining Car – where you can enjoy good food, drinks and good company with a window seat to view incredible scenery.
3. You have a dedicated room attendant
With any Amtrak sleeper car reservation, you get a friendly, dedicated train attendant who will book meal reservations for you, make and take down your bed, carry your luggage, tell you when your stop is coming up and even tell you some great stories of life on the rails.
4. You have access to the station lounge
Anyone who books a sleeper accommodation has access to Amtrak’s comfortable first-class lounges where they’re available. Relax and enjoy comfortable, quiet lounge seating, complimentary non-alcoholic beverages, snacks and internet access. And attendants in the lounges are available to assist with reservations, ticketing and local information.
