My sister, best friend and I needed a place to store our luggage until our flight and the staff was so nice. It was $5 a bag but Mario even went and booked our transportation to get to the airport just out of courtesy. The hotel itself was in a great location. Next to everything you would want to go...

This hotel was perfect. Starr was excellent, location was prime time and the aura was much needed. Definitely recommend this hotel to any and everyone. Pablo who works for the hotel helped us with our bags and taxis as if it was his livelihood. Much respect -Brandon B.
