French term or phrase: la chambre est feutree
I'm not sure whether this means the room is carpeted or soundproof. A previous paragraph says all the rooms are soundproof. "La chambre est une chambre calme de par sa position dans notre hotel puisqu'elle a une vue sur cour. Elle est feutree et possede un grand lit..." Thanks, Karen

English translation:The room is cosy
Explanation:
Feutrée refers to an atmosphere of quiet, where sound is muted and light dimmed. I think the best way to sum that up is with the word cosy.

"quiet", "noiseless"


Explanation:
It literally means "padded" or "lined with felt". In another sense, "à pas feutrés" = with noiseless tread.
