“Open house review”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2012

Spent 2 full hours touring the new Shangri-La at open house last weekend. Carefully examined 2 open hotel rooms (the Zhang Huan theme suite and a King room), the Miraj spa reception area, hotel indoor pool and cabanas, fitness centre, event spaces, ballroom, restaurants, lobby, etc. Everything seems above average especially bathrooms (deep soaker tubs and separate shower stalls come standard). However, I was told by reception that the "twin" rooms include 2 queen beds. Upon reading the booking.com site to check prices they list the "twin" rooms as including 2 standard Double beds. I would be reluctant to book the room unless they can guarantee bed sizes in advance, since Queen beds are actually longer (not just wider) than double beds and this makes a difference to tall people's comfort.
