    I would give Phillip a heads up and explain the situation depending on how close they actually are. Who knows… Phillip may not give a crap. It would be a nice courtesy to let Phillip know ahead of time so he can find a suitable roommate (assuming they have to share rooms), though.

    @Tatiana0622:  How did it usually work with the colleague he shared a room with for 2 years? Who asked who or was it just assumed that it would be happening? Given he already agreed to share with the second guy, there isn’t really a way around it. I’m sure the first guy can find someone else to share with. 

    It does seem weird your partner would break tradition for no apparent reason but on the other hand it really isn’t that big of a deal.

    @Tatiana0622:  John already asked him so he should stay with John. He will be rude for backing out now. Just tell Phillip, hey I know we usually room together but John asked me a few weeks ago so I am rooming with him.

    He should stick to rooming with John, but let Phil know soon so he can make his plans.  But then he and Phil can get together for lunch/dinner/drinks while at the conference.

    It’s not like this was their tradition for the past 5-10 years.

    Why can’t all 3 share a room?

    @Tatiana0622:  If I were in your DH’s situation, I’d give Phillip a heads up and not make a huge deal of it.

    … keep your word: room with John- but advise Philip ASAP out of courtesy.
