It's not always possible to redeem points for bunk bed rooms
Earning points is always a great option when traveling with family or friends, and at most hotels, you can redeem points for these rooms. Since some hotels categorize these accommodations as specialty rooms or suites, the points value will vary. At others, these rooms may not be eligible for point redemption at all.
Be sure to check with the property when making a reservation to see if you can use your points.
