Tina, fearing for her life, desperately ran across the busy highway and into the hotel, where she arrived with a phone card and 30 cents. After being beaten and bruised by her husband, she hoped that if she could just get away, he would not find her. See below in the famous What’s Love Got To do With It Scene.
She ended up staying at this hotel for 3 days straight. This hotel is now known as Lorenzo Hotel, where a very special room on the 11th floor is named in honor Tina. The room is called the escape room. In this room you can find beautiful quotes from the queen herself and the super star energy she so often exuded.
