Flavors of the Authors Rooms

For the pure fun of it,
 more authors rooms at the Sylvia Beach Hotel.
The Oscar Wilde room.
The William Shakespeare room.
One of my favorites because I love bathing in claw foot tubs
is the Samuel Clemens room (Mark Twain).
Even Dr. Seuss has a room here.

So you see the Sylvia Beach Hotel is not an ordinary hotel,
but each room is unique and a delight unto itself.

Just curious, if you wanted to stay in a room with an authors theme,
what author would you choose and why?
How would you decorate it?

Thank you - I love seeing these amazing rooms. Someone had incredible imagination to 'break the mold' for ocean-front hotels on the coast. I've always thought the Mark Twain room would be a great place to stay. Maybe because of the clawfoot tub!

Jane Austin or Charlotte Bronte. I would decorate their rooms for letter writing, reflection, and have a view to a beautiful garden. Jane's room would be bright and sunny. Charlotte's room would be more somber but with hints of light foreshadowing the joy that will come to her.

Hmm, I would eventually want to stay in all the rooms, and it would depend on what I was writing at the moment, since I would wish to be near the appropriate muse. Since I'm currently working on southern fiction, I would have to start with the Samuel Clemens room!

I have a friend with a Dr. Seuss kitchen (and more -- she's a real fan, fun and funky -- and I love it!) -- so I'm a bit fond of this. Of the rooms I've seen in the inn, I'm most fond of COllette and Twain, but if I was designing a room it might be a Jacqueline Winspear room with lots of post WWI/Edwardian/Georgian London feel because I love her work. Or maybe 30s Agatha... what a fun thought!

Those rooms are amazing... so clever and creative! I would love to stay in a room that depicts Miguel Cervantes de Saavedra... Don Quijote, windmills, Spanish countryside.... my second love, after tea, of course!
