I've been taking long distance Amtrak trains for over 8 years - at least one trip a year in roommate from Chicago to LAX, EMY or SEA. Today I was on Amtrak.com to book a trip from CHI to LAX. I saw roommates available for $650 on this particular day and called the customer service to see the available room numbers and in which car they are in. I told the rep I will book the roomette #5 in car 3031. I was surprised when the rep quoted me $850 for the trip even though the web says $650. I pointed out the fare discrepancy to which I was informed that Amtrak now sets the roomette fare based on the location. And in this case Room #12 is $650. I have never seen this roomette fare structure before. It has always been one price regardless of the location. Did Amtrak really change how they price roomettes now? If that's the case, I'm done riding Amtrak.
