I have stayed in this hotel four times with each stay being almost one week. Having read some of the negative reviews I wonder if these people have really spent much time traveling out of the states. The staff at Shivalikview have always been helpful and kind. Although, as in most cases it is not entirely up to American standards, I find it to be lovely, safe, comfortable and pleasant. If you are looking for a wild night life or party life this is a more refined atmosphere.
Wireless Internet works fine. If you need a cable bring your own for goodness sake.
I asked for something during my last stay and was told that the hotel was mine and anything a guest wanted would be granted. Driving service is available in the lobby and I have found it to be safe and reliable.
The manners of staff are impeccable. I suggest you stay during the Indian wedding season. Wedding parties may be observed on the beautiful third floor veranda and are amazing. The rose garden, a tour bus and shopping are all near by.
I will be staying there again in April. the mountain view is wonderful.
One other reviewer mentioned french fries. Some of the people who have traveled with me are not adventurous diners, they find the french fries great. The restaurants are pleasant and a good variety available.More
