Large double queen room with all new bedding and a unique angled ceiling, this room features a private bath with tub/shower, writing desk, mini fridge, microwave, flat screen TV, complimentary WiFi, microwave, mini-fridge, daily room service, and more.  Honor and fidelity describes Colonel Marcos Coulon de Villiers’ long service as a career officer in the Louisiana Infantry Regiment stationed in New Orleans and Pensacola. When Louisiana was sold by the French to the United States in 1803, de Villiers and his family transferred to Pensacola where they purchased a house on West Zarragosa Street. Following in the footsteps of his famous French military family, de Villiers served under Bernardo de Galvez in the 1781 Mobile and Pensacola campaigns. He settled in Spanish-controlled Pensacola thereafter. In the western side of downtown Pensacola, there is a street and district named for de Villiers. The Belmont-De Villiers District is also home of the famous soul food restaurant, Five Sisters Blues Café.
