What about une chambre double ?

Talking to another French native she amended the previous response a bit:

"Une chambre double" is a fixed term, used when you order a double room in a hotel.

"Une double chambre" is a room subdivided into two units, somehow.

It is "une chambre double", also according to a native French speaker whom I asked about this specifically. -- Chris.
