I was thinking about occupancy of TS in HGVC. Why is a studio have a Max Occupancy of 2? To me a studio and a hotel room is about the same size. However, most hotel will allow up to 4 people to stay in them especially if it has two beds. I have been told, it is because of local laws. However, that does not make any sense? Why would the local law say 2 in a studio TS but 4 in a hotel room. The logic is not there.

Some studios have only 1 bed and no sofabed. So maybe the occupancy rule was based on that configuration.

I am sure that is true. However, why not put a double or queen sofa bed. I have been in Hotel rooms that had this feature. Hilton Waikoloa was my most recent hotel stay, and most likely my last (purchased a TS). It had a King Size bed and a pull out double. I am sure Families that have small children, like me :D, would not mind losing living space if they can stretch their points for a longer stay. Oh well! I was only questioning the policy because of a selfess reason (I could have stayed in a studio for 4 nights (weekend) instead of a 1 bdrm for 3 nights, midweek at HHV.)

Thanks for the reply.

The weird thing is that half the studios at HHV had a queen (or maybe a double) bed and twin sofabed. A couple of years ago, they replaced those sofabeds with another queen/double bed at owners' requests, or so I was told. But the occupancy remains at 2. Go figure.
