While some hotels may allow five people in a room, others may have a maximum occupancy of four. It is important to check with the hotel directly or read their policies online to determine whether they can accommodate a group of five.
Most hotel rooms are designed to accommodate a maximum of 4 people, with two double or queen beds. However, some hotels may have larger rooms or suites that can accommodate larger groups. If you are traveling with a family of 5, it's best to contact the hotel directly and inquire about their room options and policies.
Standard Hotel Room Capacities
Most standard hotel rooms are designed to accommodate two to four people. These rooms typically have either one king-sized bed or two double beds. Some hotels also offer rooms with a pull-out sofa bed, which can provide additional sleeping space for one or two people.
Most hotels are allowed to sleep up to four people to a room, per local ordinances. As for who gets which bed, etiquette dictates that the person who pays for the room gets first choice of bed. If there are more beds in the room than people and you don't feel like doubling up, ask the front desk for a rollaway bed.
If you and your guests are low-key and not causing any type of issues, chances are the hotel will not be aware of your additional guests and even if they do suspect something, they may not do anything. But you still need to be aware that you are potentially violating fire codes by having so many people in your room.
If you are ordering food, bedding and toiletries for more that 2 people they are going to notice. If your stay is long they may notice but if you are only there a night or 2 and you are quiet about it I doubt they would. Hotel do have a legal obligation to know how many people for safety concerns.
The maximum occupancy for standard rooms at Value Resort Hotels is 4 Guests. You might be interested in Family Suites available at Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's All-Star Music Resort. Family Suites sleep up to 6 guests and have a small kitchenette area with a dorm-size refrigerator and a microwave.
If the hotel finds out that you have more people staying in the room than you originally booked for, they may charge you extra fees or even ask you to leave the hotel. To avoid any issues, it's best to be upfront with the hotel about how many people will be staying in the room.
Although some hotels do offer cots, the maximum capacity of a room should never exceed four adults. This is because of fire codes and insurance policies. Having too many guests could obstruct or congest the room's primary egress. More importantly, the hotel needs to be accountable for all its guests.
More people = more $
And they would be right. Some hotels charge per person, some charge a premium for however many over 2, some charge for kids, some don't, whatever. But yes, hotels do make more money if there are more people in the room.
It depends on the hotel. Larger hotels usually don't even try to control it, since it would require too much additional effort. Smaller hotels might allow visitors but require that they sign in and show identification. There may be restrictions on the hours for visiting, on the use of facilities, etc.
In many cases, hotels do allow two people to stay in a room booked for one. However, it is crucial to communicate this requirement at the time of booking to ensure appropriate room assignment. Some hotels may charge an additional fee for the second guest, while others may include it in the standard room rate.
Currently, there are only a few stateroom categories that sleep six to eight castaways in a single stateroom. Among them are the Concierge 2-Bedroom Suite with Verandah on the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder as well as the Concierge 1- and 2-Level Royal Suite with Verandah options on the highly-anticipated Disney Wish.
Disney Cruise Line
These cabins, found fleetwide, come with or without private verandahs and accommodate a family of five with one queen bed for the parents, one single sleep sofa, a wall pull-down bed and an upper berth pull-down bed.
There's nothing wrong with it. Hotels don't mind if you do it. They just need to know. If a fire, security, or safety hazard occurred, how many people they are responsible for.
Consider renting a car instead of taking a cab
Since most cabs only, only allow four passengers, it is advisable for traveling families of five to rent a van or a car that can accommodate everyone. It will be cost efficient and at the same time fun since the little ones can bond in the backseat.
In the event of an emergency
If there's a fire, earthquake or some other emergency and first responders and/or hotel staff have to search for you, they need to know how many people to search for.
Generally yes but the hotel may require you to register your guest (i.e., provide identification).
Safety is the number one reason hotels will ask during the reservation process who many guests will be booked into the room. Fire codes are an important component of any hotel stay, and you will see fire plans on the back of nearly every hotel room door in America.
Cruise ships cabins that accommodate five people do exist, but only on certain cruise lines. Even then, you'll only find them on some of the ships, and they may be very limited in availability.
If you're looking for a budget-friendly vacation, you can squeeze three to four people in a regular inside, outside or balcony cabin. Just make sure your brood's good with tight quarters and bunk beds. Some cruise lines, like Disney, offer a simple yet sweet amenity — the room partition.
Disney's Value Resorts Room Occupancy
Rooms accommodate four people, plus one child under age three in a crib. Family suites available at All Star Music accommodate six people, plus one child under age three in a crib. The other option is to request 2 connecting rooms.
More people means more towels, more noise, more people in the gym and swimming pool, and more of the chance for the room to get damaged. Hotels don't want to get a reputation for wild parties, drugs, and prostitutes, the sort of things that people who lie about how many guests are in their room are liable to do.
You're Flying with a Family of 4-5…
If you're traveling with a young cranky child who you believe will kick and cry at some point of the flight, sit your other family members in the row directly in front of you.
The faster you travel, the more you'll spend.
This also means, relaxing, wandering around a place without hurrying, and giving the kids time to play. So our advice is, even when you are flying to a destination further away, take it slow! Don't try to do it all in a couple of weeks.
