Dear Mr. Berzak,

I’d like to commend you on a job well done both at the Crowne Plaza River Oaks (2712 Southwest Freeway, Houston, TX, a 355-room hotel) and the Holiday Inn Houston Intercontinental Airport (15222 JFK Blvd., Houston, TX, a 415-room hotel).  On both of these renovations your company, crew, and supervisors performed outstandingly with great attention to detail.

As a 35-year veteran in the hospitality industry, I’ve had the opportunity to work with many independent construction contractors, hotel remodelers and other craftsmen.  Never before have I worked with a company that carries such a can-do attitude.  Star Development, Inc., knows the needs of the hotel, understands customer needs and is on the same page with the hotel to accomplish customer satisfaction as a goal.  Star Development came through on all of the above.

The item that stands above all is the meeting of deadlines.  Star Development has proven time and again that it keeps its promises by meeting deadlines.

Your quality of work, the willingness to work 24-7 and your refusal to accept mediocrity is commendable. Your precise delivering of the exact quality of a “mock room” that was produced as a sample is extremely commendable. Pricing projects with utmost understanding of both ownership and your company’s profitability is admirable. I congratulate you on your company’s ethics.  You’ve earned a long-term relationship with our company.

I wholeheartedly recommend Star Development, Inc., to anyone who needs a reference for workmanship and character.   I look forward to working with you on many other upcoming projects with our company.

 

Sincerely,

 

Sid Siddiqi

Dear Harry:

It is not often I write this type of letter, but I would like to express how extremely happy I was in working with your company, Star Development, Inc., on our latest project.   I found your team very knowledgeable and it was apparent they had reviewed all the contract documents and plans for our very difficult LAX renovation.

Our $6 million project was completed on time and within budget under a very demanding schedule.  Our room and common area punches were always scheduled and completed efficiently…and those punch lists were never long.  Our operations folks were very happy with the results and this property was recently honored with a “renovation of the year” award.

 I would recommend your company for future projects with La Quinta Inns & Suites, or any other interested groups.  We’ve enjoyed a long relationship with your company and look forward to working with you and your team in the future.

Best Regards,

John Brown
Sr. Project Manager

Dear Harry:

On behalf of our entire staff, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Star Development, Inc. for the great job you did on the extensive renovation of the Holiday Inn Fresno Airport.   What could have been a nightmare for the management and guests was, instead, less than noticeable.  Our business was virtually uninterrupted and guest complaints were at a minimum considering the scope of the project.  The Star Development team was a real pleasure to work with and was very accommodating to our needs.

 It will be my pleasure to recommend Star Development to any hotel management or owners needing renovation of their properties.

Thank you again for the pleasurable experience of dealing with such a friendly, conscientious and professional company.

Dear Mr. Berzak,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent work on the Fresno Courtyard by Marriott project and the Riverside Courtyard by Marriott renovation.  Also, for your outstanding assistance on the conversion of the Santa Fe Doubletree Hotel to Courtyard by Marriott.  Without the efforts of Star Development, Inc., the conversion would not have been possible.

Thank you again for a job well done.

Regards,

Dear Harry,

Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the high level of professional services that Star Development, Inc. has provided on the projects we’ve done together.   As the representative for the owners of some large hotels, I appreciate having a qualified general contractor on my project team. This ensures satisfied owners.

Star Development’s attentiveness and skills on the concurrent total renovations of four Fairfield Inns in several states on the East Coast enabled that project to be completed on schedule and on budget. 

Your responsiveness to challenges, and consideration shown to hotel guests during the total renovation of guest rooms and public spaces at the Sonoma Hilton in Santa Rosa, CA, was critical to that property maintaining its occupancy ratings during such an extensive project.

Harry, I look forward to a continuing successful working relationship between Star Development, Inc. and Thomas Construction Resources on future projects anywhere in the United States.

Thanks for you excellent work and your attention to my clients’ needs.  It is a great winning formula.

Sincerely,

Joseph F. Messina
