I think that I have narrowed down our hotel choices to either Umaid Mahal or Dera Rawatsar. They are both similar in price and include breakfast.
This is our first time to India and want to stay in a good location for seeing the sites (we will have a private driver) and will only have 2 nights. Our plan is to spend half a day with the elephants on the afternoon of the only full day that we have in Jaipur. So, the rest of the sightseeing will have to be done rather quickly. I also want to do a little shopping if possible.
I can up our budget if you all think that it is really worth it... Trident, ITC, Tree of Life, etc.
