The Francis

Seaside Room w./ King Bed, Private Bath & Shared Balcony
1/4
History:

The various historic structures that comprise what is today referred to as The Fred include several private family homes that were once occupied by various prominent families throughout our rich island history.  Each of our rooms are named after members of those families.  This room is The Francis who was the son of Mrs. Murray Douglas.

 

Mrs. Douglas served as the Vice Chair and eventually inherited the famous Brunschwig & Fils French textile house.  If you want curtains for the Oval Office or wallpaper for the White House's Blue Room, call the venerable fabric house, Brunschwig & Fils.

But if you want wonderful tales about decorating, sit down with Murray Douglas, Brunschwig's tastemaker for the last 50+ years and co-author of the decorating book "Brunschwig & Fils Up Close"

 

Your room has been decorated with accent fabric that is manufactured by Brunschwig & Fils as a nod to this particular family.  The pattern is called Les Fruitier, which celebrates the lush fruits that can be found on the island of St. Croix. 

The album on this page was an interview with Mrs. Douglas in Island Oasis Magazine while she was living at the property.

 

OUR TIPS:

This room has been painted with a color scheme that was recommended by sleep psychologists to evoke a deeper REM sleep pattern for a more restful night's sleep.  We hope you enjoy it!

The Fred utilizes the latest/greatest entertainment technology available for our televisions including several Movie Channels, Youtube and TV On Demand (watch your favorite shows whenever you want for free). We also have white noise channels and a channel that allows you to review any room charges as they appear on your bill in real-time.  Please Note:  Sleep psychiatrists agree that watching TV in bed can interrupt a blissful night's sleep so we recommend that you try to use the TV only during normal waking hours.

Likewise, you may sleep better if you place cell phones, laptops and other electronic devices (in silent mode) as far away from the bed as possible.  Finally, if you enjoy the mattress, linens, robes, etc. that you'll find in this room they may be purchased from our Gift Shop so that you can enjoy the same comforts in your own home.  If there's anything else you may need, please ask us as we may have it for you.  For your convenience you may text the Front Desk during normal business hours 8AM - 6PM at:
