Declaring infants

We have a newborn and will start traveling with him in July. We have two other children (11 and 12). When increasing occupancy from 4 people to 5 it severely limits our options for hotels. Since our infant will be co-sleeping in the same bed as us, is it considered OK to only put the two children instead of three? We won't need a crib or any special accommodations for our infant.

It depends. Some jurisdictions have strict occupancy limits for various types of hotel rooms (fire code) and might or might not count a small infant as a person for these purposes.

I regularly wonít add my 2 year old to hotel reservations since she wonít be occupying a bed and we donít want to be forced into a room with bedding for her (and therefore less floor space for her crib).

I often don't add my 3 year old to bookings (he is tiny and sleeps in a travel cot). Out of probably 30 - 40 hotel stays we have only been challenged on it once (Druids Glenn Dublin), where we were then offered a connected room fro an extra EUR100.
