Our Room ~ Hotel Jerome

Tours of hotels and hotel rooms are not a rarity on blogs I've followed but I suspect that, for the most part, the blogger is compensated in some manner. Not here! I'm just so thrilled to have stayed at this magnificent hotel that I'm happy to share a few photos with all of you. Today finally, the long-awaited *teehee* post with photos of our room.

As you enter the room, there is a wall of floor length mirrored doors on your right and the door to the bathroom compartments on the left. We get our first view of this beautiful wallpaper! Behind those mirrored doors are very large closets.

The bathroom was walled with marble and the floors were tiled. There was a spacious walk-in shower and a long, deep soaking tub. All the fixtures were fabulous.

We did not purchase even one of these $150 robes...can you imagine?

Moving on into the room, the desk where I uploaded photos and wrote my blog is on the right. Next to it is a long cabinet containing the in-room bar and with the flat screen TV sitting on it.

Spanning nearly the entire width of the room are these three windows that nearly reach the floor. The pattern and fabric of the drapes were a perfect complement to the magnificent wallpaper, which I loved looking at so very much.

From these windows we looked out at snow covered tree branches and the Black Billed Magpies. Rich took this amazing photo of one.

Rich is relaxing here, reading Aspen magazine, on our sumptuously dressed bed...I've never before slept on linens like these.

I spent more than a few hours on the comfy chair and ottoman reading, admiring the beautiful pattern and colors of the wallpaper, or gazing out the windows.

Most evenings the four of us played Farkle and Pinochle at this little table in our room.

I can't imagine accommodations that would be any more perfect for a week's stay than this room at the Hotel Jerome. I loved everything about it...have I mentioned how much I loved the wallpaper? Have you ever read the classic short story The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman that was first published in January 1892? Hmmm...perhaps I should not aspire to spending much more time in this room...haha!
