A couple months ago I booked a roomette for my dad and I on the TE #422 from Pomona, CA to Chicago.
As you all know that is a 61+ hour ride. I'm 5'10", my dad is 6'1". We have taken the Superliner Roomette once before (on the Zephyr from Emeryville to Chicago), and while it was cozy, it wasn't exactly spacious. I've grown a bunch since, and have been wondering if an upgrade to the bedroom would be worth it. The upgrade would cost around $400, and I'm pretty torn.
Things to know here:
- We generally like to watch a movie on the bottom bunk (the bedroom's bottom bunk is a foot wider)
- The in-room sink and toilet would be great, since I don't really want to walk down the hall every time I have to wash my face or use the bathroom.
- I sometimes get a little claustrophobic (I'm thinking of the roomette's "coffin-bunk")
Any help is greatly appreciated! I usually wouldn't even consider spending that kind of premium for the bedroom, but this is the longest route in the U.S, and I think the added comfort would go a long way.
