Amtrak Northeast Regional service will now include private rooms on select trains operating overnight between Washington, D.C., New York and Boston. 

Tickets are available to purchase for travel beginning April 5, according to an Amtrak press release.

“We offer a one-of-a-kind way to reach your destination that is unique to Amtrak,” said Roger Harris, the railroad's executive vice president and chief marketing and revenue officer. 

Riders can select from three types of accommodations: roomettes, bedrooms and accessible bedrooms. Private rooms feature seating that folds into a bed, newly upgraded bedding, pillows, towels and linens. A dedicated attendant provides turndown service, assists with meals and helps with luggage.
