• It comes with 60+ Creative Commons images, so you have plenty to work with out-of-the-box.
• There’s over a dozen highly-stylized pages, with plenty of custom Divi layouts to build your own.
• Dynamic Posts change content on the front-end, so Hoteliers/Innkeepers can update content (rooms, menus, etc.) themselves.
• The child theme uses a one-click install process, so just upload the zip, click a button & your website looks like the demo!
Pro Tip: Lock down the pages with the in-built Divi Role Editor so clients can update content without worry.
Performance & Plugins:
We didn’t just want a stylish website with lots of functionality; we wanted a fast one too. This required us to keep code clean & bake as much into the child theme as possible. A major benefit of this methodology is minimal issues when Divi updates. In fact, over 40 Divi updates later & it’s been smooth sailing!
For best performance we opted for: minimal plugins, minimal past revisions, pre-optimized images & using the Theme Customizer.
As professionals wanting to use 5 Star Hotel ourselves, we chose the best plugins available to round-out the user-experience. You’ll find a link to each plugin & a note for the ones “Essential” or “Recommended” to purchase.

I needed a Divi Child Theme for one of my Bed & Breakfast client’s new website. 5 Star Hotel made my job so much easier. I added new photos and words and and few other tweaks and am almost ready to publish. When I needed questions answered or help with something Josh with MAGI Web Design responded quickly with the help that I needed. I highly recommend 5 Star Hotel.
