Spanish term or phrase: habitación matrimonial
Es la traducción del folleto de un hotel. Es una habitación con cama matrimonial. Pero no se le llama habitación doble. ¿Alguien podría decirme si en inglés americano le llaman de algún modo en particular? Creo que en Inglaterra establecen la diferencia entre twin y double room. ¿Ocurre lo mismo en EEUU? Muchas gracias

habitación matrimonial
master bedroom with a double bed


Explanation:
I am not altogether sure whether you are not confusing twin and double rooms with what we usually go by here in the USA: twin i.e. 2 beds versus double bed (one bed sleeping 2).

habitación matrimonial
room with one double bed


Explanation:
In the U.S. a "double room" generally means 2 beds, those beds could be double or not. It could also mean one double bed, there is no standard, it varies. See these examples:

habitación matrimonial
King room


Explanation:
En USA muchas veces se le llama a la habitación por el tipo de cama que tiene. En este caso una cama de matrimonio es una king size.
Otras veces dicen "Room king bed" otros ejemplos "standard room king bed" "suite king bed" etc.

Mira en esta página que además incluye un "plano" del cuarto para ver si es el mismo tipo de cuarto.

neutral  Sol: "king" is a specific size of bed, an not the only size fit for a couple; the most common size is "queen" which is actually a little bigger than what used to be called "double" and much smaller than a "king" size

  -> Thx Sol :) In the hotel I used to work in the US that's how we called the rooms, but yes, it can be confusing since it's different in both countries.

neutral  louisajay: I don't really think this sounds natural. It could also cause confusion since as Sol says, in the US a King is bigger than a Queen - in the UK it's the other way around!

  -> Thx louisajay :) I didn't know in the UK it was the other way around... good to know!

habitación matrimonial
honeymoon suite or double room with a double bed


Explanation:
The tourist industry usually only refers specifically to a matrimonial status when speaking about the "honeymoon suite". A room with a double bed would be a double room with a double bed.
