Is it worth it?
I rode the Amtrak California Zephyr in a bedroom several years ago and I really enjoyed it. I’d happily do it again. I wrote about the experience in the post: Amtrak’s California Zephyr. Here’s a useful quote from that post:
Amtrak bedroom travel is a strange kind of luxury. Bedroom interiors were old and run down, but there was plenty of space for lounging and sleeping. And, having your own private bathroom is fantastic, even if it is tiny. Each sleeping car has an attendant who makes coffee and tea, helps with luggage, prepares your room at night, replaces wet towels, etc. We made sure to tip our attendant generously at the end of our trip.
On the other hand, … Amtrak. To get an idea of what can go wrong, see Miles to Memories’ post: Why I Walked Off My Amtrak Trip: A Beautiful Disaster!
