Why does it matter so much?

I have seen people on these boards and others talk about how they have to stay in a room with Queen beds and can't do Double beds. They need the extra room a Queen bed provides.

But a Queen bed is only 6 inches wider than a double. For 2 ppl sleeping in the bed that means each person only has 3 extra inches of bed from the Double to the Queen.

SO I ask you, does it really matter or is it all a mental thing needing the Queen beds because in your mind you feel it is much bigger?

It matters to us. The last time we slept in a double bed, I fell out. Hahaha!

eta: I am sure it's also a matter of what people are used to. Just like some people say they can not drive a sedan after driving an SUV for a while. To go from a king at home to a double on vacation is a big difference.

We have a king at home and get a king at hotels as well. My Hubby radiates heat so a few inches would make a difference to me

Both of the above apply to me (except for the falling out part), plus we have a DD who still climbs into our bed at times. A double would be VERY crowded for 3!

We will take doubles if we have to (DH's only trip was at ASMo), but when choosing hotel rooms, if there is a reasonable choice between Q & D, we go for Q.

Heck, I sleep alone and I want that Queen bed! I stretch out from one side of the bed to the other.

If I were to share a bed, that extra 6 inches is NOT split between. I get the whole extra 6 inches to myself!

Doesn't sound like much but it DOES make a BIG difference.

Being 6'5, every bit of extra room helps.

I can definitely tell the difference. I was helping my daughter put the bed sheet on her full size bed. I just laid there for a minute and I can tell the difference from my queen size bed. I'm very petite, but I love the luxury of a bigger space to roll.

Yes. A few inches make a difference! We have a Cali King at home and in hotels with Kings, DH's feet hang off the edge!

My wife says I do too.....and she considers that a good thing since she is always cold.

We have a queen at home, get lost in it even though I am 6'2" and 270 lbs, and DW if 5'7"......even with the cat on the bed too. Hotels, Double/queen/king doesn't matter.

I will say that I am amazed at the folks that need a big bed because their SO bothers them when they sleep, get 2 singles like in the I Love Lucy or Dick Van Dyke Shows, not a king, if that's the case.

Why need singles? Maybe they like sharing a bed but want some space also. Twins are shorter also.

True.
Been married for over 30 years and have been sleeping in a queen that long.
Prior to that, I had a twin, and it took me some time to adapt to not having my feet hanging off the end of the bed when I got married.

Haha, I sleep alone and still need that Queen. I cannot sleep in a twin. I COULD do a double, but much prefer a Queen.

It's my vacation and if I want to sleep in a bed at least as big as the one in my bedroom, that's what I'm doing. Again, it's my vacation. Last year, my husband and I ended up sleeping in separate beds for the 1st time in our lives because I thought we could settle. It was awful. I'm still in love with my husband and we want to be comfortable and also sleep together. Yes, it matters.
