Welcome to Chez Moi! Give your Guests a Hotel Experience

All of us have been guests in less-than-ideal accommodations. Whether it was the lumpy bed and flat pillows at a motel or sleeping among your Aunt Ruby's overly-friendly cats, sometimes we are stuck toughing it out when we travel. Remembering these experiences makes us hope to never subject our loved ones to the same kind of treatment!

The next time you are hosting company, consider giving your guests the royal treatment. In addition to providing them with a fantastic room to sleep in, make them feel as though they are truly on vacation.
