Travelers booking the rooms will get access to private onboard facilities and get to use Amtrak’s premium lounges in Boston and Washington.

The overnight trains between Washington, DC, and Boston are getting slightly more bearable with upgrades coming this spring. 

Amtrak will offer private rooms on late-night Northeast Regional trains running between Washington and Boston starting in April. The once-daily trains already depart in the evening and arrive in the early morning after a near-10-hour journey in each direction but have been limited to standard coach class and business class seats.
