The terms say "similar room type". In my experience, they have used common sense. So my expectation would be, since the BW site has 2 doubles and also 2 queens, the comparison would be 2 doubles to 2 doubles.

If the BW site had only 2 queens, they might take the 2 doubles as a comparison, especially if you could show that the hotel only has queens (the 2 doubles notation being an artifact of hotels.com)

But either way, in your case, $1 difference is enough, so it should be accepted.
