For those who’ve never traveled overnight on an Amtrak train, there are several different types of private accommodations available to book. The smallest offering is the Amtrak Roomette, which includes two seats for daytime use and lower and upper berths that fold down at night.

The Amtrak Bedroom offers twice the space as a Roomette and also includes a private shower. Those traveling with more than two people can book adjoining Bedrooms to create a Bedroom Suite. There are also Accessible Bedrooms that are located on the train’s entry level and include enough space for a wheelchair.

Private room fares all include continental breakfast before arrival, a complimentary alcoholic drink, plus free Metropolitan Lounge access at Washington Union and Boston South stations.

Curious to give the night train experience a go? This new service is available on the following schedules:

  • Train 66: Departing Washington Union Station at 10 p.m. daily, Train 66 arrives at New York Penn Station at 1:55 a.m. and Boston South Station at 7:58 a.m. 
  • Train 67: Departing Boston South Station at 9:30 p.m. Sundays to Thursdays, Train 67 arrives at New York Penn Station at 2:30 a.m. and Washington Union Station at 7 a.m.
  • Train 65: This train offers a similar schedule as Train 67 with slightly different arrival times on Fridays and Saturdays.

Unfortunately, this new service isn’t as cheap as those $109 private rooms on Amtrak’s Auto Train. One-way fares for one person start at $256 for the Baltimore to New Haven stretch of the journey, and go up to $288 for those traveling the full length of the route between Boston and Washington, D.C.
