Far more to my satisfaction were the bedrooms, which were furnished throughout with imitation Louis XV hangings.

What does "Far more" mean? Does it mean "Much more"? If I am right, then "imitation" does not fit the sentence.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, "far more" means "much more". In this case, I think that the speaker still considers the hangings to be nice, even if they were imitations. Based on the sentence, it sounds like there's no way that there would be real Louis XV hangings in the rooms, but the imitation ones were appreciated.
