amtrak sleeping accommocation

A party of four adults is planning to travel from chicago to los angeles next year. we are considering booking roomettes and want to hear from anyone who has done this. from the photos it seems as though in the day time there are two seats, at night bunks. ok so far, but as a party of four we would like to spend the time together during the day and these only accommodate 2. we have looked at the family rooms but they are designed for 2 adults and 2 children. i know there are observation cars on these trains, we have travelled on them before in coach seats. our experience has been that they get very full and once someone has a seat up there they don't let it go. at least in coach you are all together in the coach cabin but now we are getting older (we did this when we were much younger), we would at least prefer a bed (of sorts) to sleep in. any hints and tips about sleeping accommodation is welcome
