I use size but mine are queen and full, no king here. In 1912 beds were in 3 sizes - single, 3/4, or double and the rooms were made to accomodate that - at least that is what they are here. I do have queens in 2 of my rooms. The third room has too many doors/windows/mantle to contend with. I have not been able to figure out how to fit a queen yet.

Or just 'with a king bed'. Or, better still, bullet points listing whatever you're telling the guests about. I think people are more likely to read a list than a paragraph.

This is good advise. I wrote the descriptive paragraph, then below, added the bullet points. Double whammy!

A Queen Room.

I think many of us it do it for our overseas guests. As they simply call rooms 
"a Double" or "a Single" or "a family room" etc.

Two Queen Beds

A Queen Bed.

I like the sound of it, but catch myself saying size. As it sounds odd.

It IS hard with some folks as I don't know without asking whether they mean a room for two or a room with two beds!

Regular king. Frankly, I don't know why anybody would want a California king unless they just didn't have room for a standard king.

California Kings are a bit smaller (fewer sq. inches). They're longer than standard kings, but 4 inhces narrower.

I think in 2012 America, we need that extra 4 inches in width, as those diets just don't work!

They were a fad, so many people still have them in their bedroom suites now.

 What size or sized king? California King?

 

(Sorry just had to add that, we have a CALF king - and btw Comphy sheets does sell CALF king - sheets are hard to find in that size around here)

Easier to take 'size/d' out altogether!

OK, I added that option to the poll. You can go back and cancel your vote and recast for the third option.

I had this dilemma as it sounded odder with Queen. 

So I went with 

A Walnut King Bed.

4 Poster Queen Bed.

(So always give us an OTHER option on a poll, mine is OTHER) Smiling

Oh and I did use "SIZE" on one I just double checked. Not Sized.
