Our room was beyond gorgeous. Lush and sumptuous leather with clean lines and fur throw pillows. Crisp fresh heavy real linen on a heavenly bed with NO head boards or squeaky creaky anythings. Perfectly arranged and the seating was very old school comfortable. (The kind of stuff a man can sit on without feeling silly.) The bathroom with the cedar...
