    In looking at booking a room at Paris, I notice that it is more $ to book a queen room vs. a king room. Same level of rooms, luxory (cheapest rooms) Why would a queen be more than a king? Usually they don't guarantee your request of bed... Why should I pay more to book queen (I want 2 beds) vs booking king and requesting queens at checkin? What am I missing?

    In Vegas it seems that 2 queen beds are always more than 1 king as the assumption is that more people will be or could be staying in one room.

    I agree. One way or another people skirt extra occupant fees and I think charging more for queens makes up for it. For some hotels, they all but guarantee the selection but not enough of them do even that.

    I usually book the queen room (we like to have the extra bed) but have found it very easy to ask for the 2 queens at check in if I have initially reserved a king....our kids have done this too.

    It depends on the hotel...many do not charge more. My guess is the people who cram 4 in without paying for the extra 2 people in the room.

    sybgal: Did you mean you book the king room, and ask for 2 queens when checking in? Was this at Paris?

    I'm going with my sister, and we could both sleep in a king bed, but would certainly be more comfortable in 2 seperate beds. It's not that much more at Paris for the queens, but just seems silly to me.

    My thought would be book the king and do a $20 sandwich when checking in asking for 2 Queens instead. If it's less than $20 I would just pay the difference personally.

    Every hotel charges a different rate for Queen rooms now... I'm assuming the reasoning is because you may have more than 2 people... also they just don't have as many so they can probably charge a premium. Also they can guarantee the room type now. Probably easier for them to plan for the day if they know how many people want a certain room type.

    It's not always more though.. sometimes it's less!

    This bothers me though, I'm single, not married, I don't wanna share a bed with my Mom, or my friend if I don't have to lol. Not every person is trying to cram 6 people in a regular room.

    Thanks all for the input. In the CET website, when booking reservations, they state that they cannot guarantee the preference. I think I will take my chances with booking king. I will "tip" the desk person hoping for an upgrade and/or queen room.
