For 2 people, a roomette is just fine. The date I checked in August had a roomette for 2 for $708 from Chicago to Flagstaff. The uncomfortable night is from Pittsburgh to Chicago in coach. A bedroom IMO is for a couple traveling with a kid or 2. For many years I slummed in coachTrying to book an Amtrak trip for two from PHL to FLG in Aug. The Bedroom fare comes up at a whopping $4785 R/T. We can go First Class Air for $954 round trip for two exactly 1/5th the price. We do not mind paying up to double to support train travel but this pricing is rediculous. The only thing that I can figure out is that management is trying to discourage ridership and kill the LD service.
