    Both are right. They all mean 'with' in these two sentences. But this depends on the context.
    I think the following sentence is more formal.
    أريد غرفة بها تكييف هواء.

    Some cases we can't replace 'مع' with 'بـ'
    I'm studying with my friend. أذاكر مع صديقي
    I went to school by bicycle. ذهبت إلى المدرسة بالدراجة
    I play with my ball. ألعب بكرتي
    I write with my pen. أكتب بقلمي

    bi means "with" and sometimes "by"
    ma'a means "together/together with"
