Usually E. Never A. Good layout and close to stairs to get access to extra luggage downstairs. Away from the doors at the end of the sleeper that open and shut constantly and loudly. Close to ice and coffee/juice.
Include me in the E club for the above stated reasons! Second choice is C because the bed/couch faces the same way as E and if the bedrooms are @ the front when the sleeper is hooked up you get to ride facing forward! As has been said, A is last choice, Id as soon pay for a roomette as have A but thats just me! IINM I read on this site that the A bedroom is always the last sold so it's by definition high bucket?A couple of times the SCA has been using the A bedroom on trains Ive been on, also the family room seems to get use from the OBS too when not occupied!
And what really makes me mad is getting stuck paying high bucket for an A room on a long multi-day trip. :angry:Include me in the E club for the above stated reasons!

I would not go that far. I would still take an A room with its shower and larger bed (hopefully at low bucket) over any roomette."A" should be turned into the attendant room/storage area. That would free up a more affordable, and likely more sale-able, roomette.
The BEST bedroom is one the one I am in on a AGR ticket !!!!!!
Uusually the coffee crowd is reasonably quiet before 7:00.Thanks for the opinions guys, I just got AGR tickets for a trip - 11 months from now. They put me in the E bedroom. I was concerned about noise in the morning around the coffee pot, but if folks are getting coffee it is probably time for me to get up, get breakfast and go to the sightseer car
Oh, now I am really excited. For my 8-train journey in May:Go for E, best seat and bed in the house. By the time I climb the stairs I am ready to fall into the first bedroom I come to.
We've ridden in E most of the time but have stayed in C and D also. Our favorite is E (what else is new?) and we usually get that room as we book months in advance. All bedrooms except A have exactly the same layout or a mirror image of it. As pointed out E is near the center vestibule of the sleeper, where the coffee, water and ice are located and its possible that you might hear some chat in that area but we haven't experienced any undue noise so far. We limit our train travel to about 1200 miles so that all of our trips are just 1 overnight. I don't know what life on a train for three days is like but if you have a laptop with a connect card, and some DVD movies (don't forget the speakers) , the evening hours in your room will be more enjoyable.Any that is not Bedrrom A
