On a recent business trip to Anand (Gujarat), I along with a colleague drove down from Ahmedabad airport via Sardar Patel Ring Road and Ahmedabad-Baroda Express Way reaching La Casa Inn around 10.30 PM. The hotel near Ganesh Crossing enjoys a strategic location in Anand. On entering the reception, a huge well maintained aquarium (about 8 feet long) with lots of colourful tropical fishes would attract one’s attention. As we went on official work with a local academic institute, we were offered a discount on the rack rate and the Platinum Suite of the hotel thus became pretty affordable. My office colleague after a thorough personal assessment of the room accorded approval. The staff at the reception handled our ‘check in’ well after a quick filling of forms and taking copy of our IDs. But our real surprise awaited us the next day.
I was allotted room # 302 at the third floor and a slow lift heaved us through the floors. The room was quite spacious unlike the typical hotel accommodation with heavy set wooden cot (king size), writing desk, bureau and a double closet. The room had a large window on south-east end overlooking the busy Anand - Sojitra Road. In the early morning, I could see a continuous stream of school kids cycling or walking down in groups.
The breakfast was served in the restaurant, La Casita at the ground floor. While the breakfast was complimentary, it had a very modest spread…canned juice, bread & butter, pasta in a tomato sauce, fried potato wedges, omelettes and puri-bhaji. We wanted to check out by 10 AM…as we received the final bills, we discovered that my name and my colleague’s surname were wrongly spelt by the hotel even after filling in those registration forms by us in capital letters. As we had pointed out the mistakes, we were curtly told that only one person had the password for the computer to edit the entries and he was expected only after an hour or so! All our good impression for the hotel went on a toss…
