Having a young baby we decided to stay in a suite and the Taj were excellent in catering for baby's needs - nothing was too much trouble, with some lovely touches and thoughts and provided promptly.
The staff at the hotel are amongst the friendliest, most welcoming bunch I have met and this level of service was provided by everyone we came into contact with.
I feel a little churlish mentioning it in the title but yes the suite was dated and definitely tired. We stayed in a Falconers one bedroomed suite - at a good rate - and I wondered whether we had been given a less desirable room as a result? I felt a little disappointed on first arrival given the images I had seen online - however despite its amazing, very central location it was exceptionally quiet - we slept better than we had in months on a super comfy bed - and ordered excellent room service on both nights from the Michelin starred restaurant and another onsite.
Would I stay again? A little torn on this - the welcoming staff made all the difference when considering the review but I'd like to hear that there was renovation in the pipeline as maybe we were just unfortunate on our room allocation.
