I loved the decor of our room which was both classic and modern. Jennifer and I found the bed extremely comfortable and loved the water shower pressure, which was nice and strong.
Little touches like the wallpaper, shutter blinds, curtains and whimsically painted furniture added extra touches to the room and made it feel special.
