It’s certainly an interesting decision to have only small double beds in the rooms at the Blancaneaux and Turtle Inn properties. Apparently, he was questioned on exchanging the doubles for queen beds earlier this year and his firm was unequivocal. We learnt that with these two hotels already gaining renown as popular honeymoon destinations, Francis Ford Coppola is set in his belief that a small double bed helps contribute to a romantic environment for couples. There being no alternative but to lie close in the heat of the night, with carnal thoughts becoming unavoidable. I am unsure if this really is best for all guests with temperatures close to 90 degrees at times, but I am enjoying his thinking.. the romantic old devil.
