For this you have to ask the company to provide you luxury accommodation.

                                        If an individual trekker asks to arrange his/her Everest Base Camp Trek, then, the trek/tour operator has to do it.

Therefore, you can not stay overnight at Everest Base Camp. However, if you carry all the required food items, tents and equipment for accommodation, you can stay overnight at Everest Base Camp. But, you need to have that permit prior to the trekking.

                                        Normally, the trek to Everest Base Camp is 14 days with two days acclimatization: one at Namche and the other at Dingboche including arrive and departure. If you exclude arrival and departure, then, it will be 12 days trek to Everest Base Camp. Some people also prefer doing Rapid Everest Base Camp Trek which will be of 10 days excluding two acclimatization days but it will be too rush and there you are highly prone to altitude sickness if ascend quickly without proper acclimatization.
