The Worldly Hotel

Recent blog by Star Plaza on December 14, 2012

There is a new breed of hotels in the world — Star Plaza and this website are part of this new lineage. In short, a hotel like this is a self-contained world, fully connected to its local environment and yet at the same time fully wired with the global environment.




What to Expect



Space on the planet seems to shrink and populations increase, while distances between places also diminishes. It is easier to go to another city and arrive, than it is to deal with a bewildering local scene and landscape.


That is why the new breed of hotel has arisen. It provides an all-inclusive landing ground that puts the visitor in control of how much and how fast to interact directly with the surrounding locale.


At the same time, guests have access to so much inside the hotel complex, like the facilities at Star Plaza, which also connects them to the world via seamless Web access and online account management.


Theoretically, guests would not have to leave the hotel during short visits and get everything they need done, while also enjoying the local flavor that steeps the entire place from the inside out.



New Global Amenities



Things are changing at the local level along with the Internet, while the Web also adapts to more experienced users and generations raised on it. More and more is available online; people generally have gotten used to taking most of their favorite media, for instance, wherever they go. They either have it on a device, or, it is stored in the Cloud and is accessed wherever they go.


That is why a hotel must be connected. If not, people can get cut off from things  they depend upon that is accessed online. The rest of the amenities of a new breed of hotel are obvious: everything a visitor would need whether attending an event or organizing one. 


Even laws are changing in the US concerning various forms of entertainment that were previously illegal, like real-cash bingo, lotteries and even casinos online. The newest hotels will offer everything legally possible to people who travel the world and expect most services and entertainment to go with them.

A few of the top casinos to visit in America

Recent blog by Star Plaza on January 28, 2011

While the first stop for anyone seeking quality American casino action will always be Vegas, it is not the only place on the map you should be looking at with that in mind. With sites like Gaming Club coming to prominence, people wants to enjoy a bit of a gamble whilst relaxing on their vacation. For example Atlantic City is another resort with much to offer in casino terms – notably the Trump Taj Mahal and the Borgata. The former in particular offers everything from one of the biggest poker rooms of any American casino, to thousands of slot machines and live rock and roll at its Hard Rock Café built-in music venue.
The Borgata Hotel, Casino and Spa is no less impressive, and the latter part will go down well if you are taking your holiday with a long-suffering spouse who doesn’t share your love of casino gaming. Another place in America that you should consider visiting if you want the best in slots and table games is Connecticut, which is where you will find the Foxwoods Casino. This is one of the largest in the U.S., and the 6000-plus slot machines make it a reel paradise for lovers of this kind of casino game. It is also a very popular casino amongst bingo fans, because of the 5000-seat bingo hall found within the complex.
If you think Foxwoods is big though, wait until you see the enormous WinStar World Casino in Oklahoma. The ‘World’ part of the name comes from the fact that the eight huge games plazas are themed around cities of the world, and overall they take up 500,000 square foot of space. The WinStar also offers sports betting options, including a separate plaza for horse racing, so there is something for all types of gamblers. Finally we come to Vegas, and there are too many top casinos there to mention, but the Bellagio remains one of the jewels in the crown of the Strip. From its extraordinary Fountains of Bellagio, to the luxury hotel accommodation, this is a casino complex that dreams are made of. It should be one of the first places any visitor to Las Vegas takes in.

Welcoming Montclair, New Jersey

Recent blog by Star Plaza on December 17, 2010

Situated in the Watchung Mountains just twelve miles away from Manhattan, Montclair Township is a place that breathes culture and art. Its reputation is built not only around the numerous museums it has to offer to its tourists, but also around the prestigious colleges and schools. Indeed, it lacks the crowds or excitement of New York or Las Vegas, but there are plenty of online casinos or other exciting places online that can compensate for such needs during a stay here. 

A short history of Montclair, New Jersey

The Lenape Indians were the first to enjoy the natural beauty of Montclair, but, as expected, their stay is not associated with notable economic developments in the area. A first move in that direction would only be made in the early 1700s, when John Speer built the border house that would lie in the middle of Speertown, as the area is known today, an area which put Montclair, then known as West Bloomfield, on the American economic map in 1831, when the Morris Canal was completed. So those interested in offline and online casinos might find some comfort after all knowing that the township became known around the same time poker was first played in Louisiana. The first railroad was built here in 1856 and that facilitated the establishment of Montclair Township in 1868. Later on, the end of WWII would bring with it the expansion of its metropolitan area. 

Tourist attractions in Montclair, New Jersey

As already mentioned, there may not be too many attractions for you if you are a poker aficionado or casino lover in general, but there surely are a lot of them for art fans. American art has a strong ally in this township, the Montclair Art Museum alone exhibiting over 15,000 objects of American and Native American art. The Presby Memorial Iris Gardens are also one of the main attraction points of the township. Built in 1927, this is the number one iris repository of the world with 3,000 varieties grown for exhibition. The Howard Van Vleck Arboretum, the Van Vleck House and Gardens, the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center and the Crane House and Museum also contribute to the huge cultural and natural potential of the area.

These attractions are accompanied by a number of 18 public parks and therefore an attractive range of recreation services. Unfortunately for gambling aficionados, they do not include casinos. However, Montclair encourages them to take a break from their poker or roulette games and relax on one of the three golf courses within the Essex Country Park System or walk around the four reservations it includes.  

Of course, there is more to Montclair than just nature and art. Its educational reputation also precedes it. The campus here brings together the students of the College of Education and Human Services, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the College of Science and Mathematics, the College of Arts, the School of Business and the Graduate School.

Montclair, New Jersey has a lot of things to offer, from natural beauty to a rich history, from celebrated institutions to celebrated local personalities. However, if they fail to convince you that this is a place worth visiting, you can always join those fans of online casinos at

Excellent Infrastructure


The Union Township is also ready to offer to all potential visitors looking to turn into business people here an amazingly developed infrastructure that is unparalleled. So if you are looking forward to coming to a place where commercial booming is at home, feel free to check out Union Township.

Paul and Beverly are brother and sister – and the first-ever brother and sister winners in the history of the ROSE Awards. Paul and Beverly have been working at our property for a compelling 12 and 19 years respectively.

Also, recognized at the award ceremony were Fermin Monreal and Mark Tarlton, who were another two of our ROSE Award nominees due to their extraordinary contributions to Star Plaza and their superior guest service skills.

The ROSE Awards are presented annually by the SSCVA, and were created to recognize exceptional front-line hospitality employees who go above-and-beyond the call of duty on a regular basis. Most often, guests have more interaction with front-desk employees than an owner or manager, and ultimately have a lasting impression on guests. (Click here to learn more.)
