superior double?

I am trying to translate the meaning of English terms on web sites to how we call them in America.

I see things like Large Double/Twin Room and Superior Double/Twin room.

Does Large Double = Queen?

Superior Double = King?

Anybody point me to a site to help translate terms like this?

thanks,

Scott

Scott: I've found "Large" and "superior" relate to the room size, not the bed size. Double room can mean either two double beds, one double bed or two twin beds.

There is a real difference in interpretation between king sized bed in US and UK. In US, a king will always mean a bed at least 6'0" wide. Unfortunately in the UK, it is often used to describe a 5'0"" wide bed.

Double usually implies a double bed, Twin means two single beds.

Check with each hotel regarding the actual size of the so-called 'double' bed.... some only offer a bed that's 4ft. 6in wide as a 'double'..... no fun trying to sleep diagonally across it where there are two people, if one of you is very tall and the other one very wide !
