"and includes a decadent dessert room"

From an advertising perspective, pairing "decadent dessert" in the text with a picture that features an overweight individual in the background creates a negative association. "Decadent" is employed to suggest pleasure; however, the overweight individual shifts the suggestion to "unpleasant consequences".

Like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Use them wisely to give your clients the biggest bang for their advertising buck.
