"The baron administrator sent me to a suite at the Grand Bespin Hotel. He told me to bring my finest work, fit for royalty. I thought he was only being dramatic."
―Neshee to Jailyn Cirri[2]

The Grand Bespin Hotel was a hotel[2] located on the Tibanna mining colony of Cloud City.[1] It was notable for its white awchways.[2] After fleeing Hoth with Han Solo and Chewbacca,[1] Princess Leia Organa[3] stayed in a suite at the hotel[2] while the Millennium Falcon was being repaired.[1] Baron administrator Lando Calrissian sent the stylist Neshee to[2] the princess'[3] suite, telling him to bring his finest work, fit for royalty. Neshee brought a cloak in radiant tones of red and orange and was surprised to discover that the garment was for an actual princess.[2] Later, Solo came to[1] Leia's[3] suite[2] to inform her that the Falcon's repairs were almost finished. Shortly afterward, Chewbacca came there with the body parts of C-3PO, who, unbeknownst to them, had been blasted apart by Imperial stormtroopers. Calrissian then greeted them in the apartment and asked them to join him for refreshments, before leading them to the[1] Rinetta dining room.[3]
