David Beckham Ditches Posh...Hotel Digs Down Under
He may have arrived via private jet to Sydney but so far British soccer superstar David Beckham has insisted that he get the same hotel digs as his LA Galaxy teammates inside the Star City Hotel & Casino downtown.
The 32-year-old had the option of the Royal Suite at Star City's hotel but will, just like every other player, take a standard room (well, his does have Harbour views).
The Royal Suite goes for about $5,230 a night while a regular room starts at around $230. And this is not the first time Becks has refused the royal treatment when staying with his team at a hotel. He famously hit up at Doubletree Hotel in Washington D.C. rather than request more...ahem...Posh digs.
While the LA Galaxy is set to play the Sydney football club in a friendly match Tuesday night, Becks and the team should have plenty to do in their downtime. The Star City Hotel is part of a larger entertainment venue that includes a casino, 7 restaurants, 8 bars, and several theaters with live shows.
