Amtrak Superliner Passenger Train Accommodations, including photographs and detailed descriptions of seats, rooms, train cars and services.
Note: The "Standard Bedroom" used to be called the "Economy Sleeper". This document was written before the name change. Thus, the "Standard Bedroom" is referred to as the "Economy Sleeper" in this document.
The Economy Sleeper accomodates two people. However, if you are either rather tall or rather large, you might question that statement. My wife and I are both under 5'8" and well under 200 pounds. We fit into the Economy Sleeper quite comfortably with plenty of room to spare! The best way to describe the Economy Sleeper is to say it is almost the size of 3 phone booths. Just think of each person sitting in one of the 3 phone booths with the third phone booth in the middle for leg room and a fold down table.
Here is Amtrak's own description of the Economy Bedroom: "The Economy Bedroom is designed for one or two passengers, with two comfortable reclining seats on either side of a big picture window. At night, the seats convert to a bed, and an upper berth folds out from the wall. Economy Bedrooms are located on both the upper and lower levels; restrooms are nearby.
DIMENSIONS: 6'6" X 3'6" (2M X 1.1M)
LOWER BERTH: 6'6" X 2'4" (2M X 71CM)
UPPER BERTH: 6'2" X 2' (1.9M X 61CM)
Capacity for 2 small tote bags."
If you are traveling alone, you have plenty of room for one of those smaller overnight suitcases to sit in the seat across from you!
