I mentioned this in another thread, but would like add'l opinions. My husband and I are considering a long Amtrak trip, either the Coast Starlight, or maybe even the Empire Builder from Washington state heading East.
My question is, these routes don't appear to have any Business class seats/cars (we rode in this class from Seattle to Vancouver, and the seats were very nice). But would it be really uncomfortable on such a long route, riding in the Coach seats, or should we splurge on a roomette or bedroom? There are a couple of place where we may get off the train and stay a night, but on the longer stretches, what are anyone's thoughts on the comfort of the Coach seats and cars? We're leaning towards at least getting a roomette, though.
Thanks in advance!
