Google returns all three as words. Right now, I'm using, "guest room".
I would use "guest room" (two separate words). I just checked, and Merriam-Webster spells it with two words as well.
that's how i see it used most of the time and how i would write it/edit it...
Thanks! That's what I thought.
Guest room and guestroom are both correct. It's your choice.
I prefer "guestroom" because it fits with "bedroom" and "bathroom".
but 'dining room' and 'living room' and 'sitting room' are still 2 words...
Compare the two sets:
Guestroom, bedroom, bathroom: all private areas.
Dining room, living room, sitting room: all communal areas.
It makes more sense to group guestroom with the first group.
if you say so..................
Separate names with a comma.
