I will soon be going on a weeklong international work trip, which I am very much looking forward to. However, we just found out that we will be sharing rooms with coworkers for the entirety of the trip (which involves 2 separate lodgings in different cities). I am a pretty adaptable person (and like to think I am very easy to share a space with!), but as an introvert, the idea of having little to no privacy from coworkers for this length of time is a bit unsettling to me. At my last company, we were always assigned single rooms, so this level of intimacy with colleagues is not something I am used to.
I have thought about asking to split the difference between a private and double room, but I am not sure this will even be possible because the arrangements have already been made. I also don't want to seem difficult by requesting this type of accommodation.
Is this something others have dealt with, and if so, what are your thoughts? How have you approached?
