    stay at the same room as / in

    Dear all,

    If you want to say you and your brothers Tom and Kevin stayed at a room together,

    how do you say it?

    1. At the ABC Hotel, I stayed at the same room with Tom and Kevin.

    2. At the ABC Hotel, I stayed at the same room as Tom and Kevin.

    3. At the ABC Hotel, I shared a room with Tom and Kevin.

    Which one do you think is okay?

    OP

    I like 2 and 3.

    We stay in rooms at hotels.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
