Bed and Breakfasts traditionally name each bedroom available to guests. This allows B&B owners, as well as their guests, to be able to distinguish between the rooms. The B&B bedroom names can be based on any number of reasons. Here are 10+ ways B&B bedroom names come about:
- Activity (such as a hobby or a sport like photography or football)
- Amenity (like a private hot tub or their own personal fireplace in the room)
- Color in the room (like red or lavender walls or bedding)
- Country or culture the room represents (such as China or Mexico)
- Famous people (including famous writers and leaders like Hemingway and Lincoln)
- History (named after the original residents; associated with the time period it was built)
- Local connection (near a famous local attraction; common local flowers or foods)
- Occasion (such as the Honeymoon Suite or Anniversary Room)
- Style the room is decorated in (such as Victorian or French Country)
- Theme (including a particular animal or season)
- Type of location (such as on the beach or in a castle)
As bed and breakfast owners, you can have fun with what you name your rooms. Be creative and come up with names of rooms that people would like to say they stayed in. Sometimes B&B owners have signs by the doors to let guests know they have come to the right room.
Naming the rooms in your house gives your bed and breakfast character and distinguishes it from other B&B’s. This also allows your guests to recommend the particular rooms they stayed in by their B&B bedroom names to other people.
You are welcome to share a link to your (named) rooms page on your bed and breakfast website as well as to tell us the reason they were named that way.
