We're leaving for vacation in 2 weeks and I'm starting to obsess. I'm hoping you guys can talk me down.

Phineas is now 3.5. He sleeps in our bed with us at home. We've tried getting him to sleep in his own bed, but he won't have it. For our trip, I've booked hotel rooms with 1 King bed. To do so, I needed to book the reservation as "2 adults. 0 kids." If I booked as 2 adults and 1 kid, the only option was 2 double beds. (As a note, we tried staying in a room with 2 double beds before and Phineas spent the whole night going back and forth between the beds. First he missed Mommy. Then he missed Daddy. And so on, all night. It was exhausting.)

Some additional details: The trip is to Canada. None of the hotels include breakfast, so I don't feel like I'm getting anything "extra" for free. All of the hotels are large hotels that do take kids.

I've now worked myself into a panic that we're going to show up at the hotels and be turned away because of the undisclosed 3rd human. Should I be worried?

I wouldn't think they would turn you away, but giving the hotel a call to ask about the situation might ease your worries?

I wouldn't sweat it at all, but agree that maybe calling and explaining the situation ahead of time might put you more at ease. We've definitely stayed in hotels with our kids without including them in the booking.

Thanks. Having someone else say not to worry actually helped quite a lot. I've done the reservations this way for our previous vacations without any issue, so I'm not really sure why I'm so worried about it this year.

Speaking as a former Canadian hotel worker, you should be fine. The 2 double bed thing is probably an automatic lock in system and not an actual hotel rule.

We have done that as well! We cosleep and no one has ever said anything. We have done it at places that serve breakfast and no one has said anything at all.

I genuinely don't think I have ever put the right number of people on our hotel reservation. It's nit that i am trying to be shady, but I forget to change the default. Ithas never been a problem when I show up with extra little humans.

i agree with everyone else that i doubt it matters but if you really want to ease your mind just call them.
i dont think i ever really pay attention to the number of people i make the reservation for im just looking at the type of room/bed i want and the prices.

i think the worst that could happen is the charge you a fee for a third person though i highly doubt that would happen. i dont think they would ever turn you away. after all they want your money :-)

I have said I was only bringing 2 kids and shown up with a third because otherwise I would have to book a second room, which is just silly. Honestly, if it's a posh hotel, they will probably be too posh and friendly to be poopy about it and if it's a budget hotel, they probably won't care. I worked as a housekeeper and occasionally did front desk and they told me they know people sneaked more people in and what can you do? (They were talking about sneaking in extra adults, too. I don't think anybody cares about little kids.)

Thanks everyone. I'm going to stop obsessing about this now and move on to worrying about something else. Yay parenting.

I'm hoping that by vacation 2017, Phineas will be in his own bed and the default 3 people, 2 double beds will work for us. It would be nice to have a headbutt free night of sleep.

I agree that it is nothing to worry about. Enjoy your holiday! As a Canadian, welcome to Canada! :)

Thank you. Phineas looks forward to hitting all your trees with sticks and admiring your whales. He finds your lack of monkeys disappointing.
