John Keats, Room 408

John Keats boasts an inviting French double bed and hand painted murals that are so life like that they captivate the most talented of artists.

John Keats (1795-1821) is one of the greatest and most loved of all English poets. His life has helped to define the modern paradigm of the poet’s story. The first son of a stable keeper, Keats was orphaned as a boy of eight. He trained as a doctor but sacrificed his medical ambitions to a literary life. He contracted tuberculosis while nursing his brother through the fatal illness, and died in Rome at the age of twenty-five. He is a figure of tragic dimension.
