I don't think I've said this before about a hotel. It really was that good. From the moment I checked in (Early, as my flight got in before noon), to the moment I checked out (Late, because my flight left near midnight), I had a great experience. Check that - I forgot to include the car service the hotel provided from and to the airport...That was awesome, too!
The entire staff couldn't have been more helpful my entire visit. They struck the perfect balance of friendly and attentive, without the intrusiveness I sometimes see in other Asian hotels. I saw many, many westerners as guests throughout my stay, and the hotel staffs' familiarity with Western personalities was clear. Well done!
I wish all hotels rooms were like the one I had... Lots of electrical outlets in all the key places (And they were universal design, meaning I didn't need any of my adaptors), the shower was huge (And water pressure was awesome!), the closets were big, the TV worked well, the bed was comfortable... Even the shades worked well (they closed properly - Overlapping well to keep out the early morning light).
The morning buffet at the restaurant had a wide offering. My second morning, I decided to do something I've never done - I asked the server for help with the Indian portion of the buffet. He was AMAZING - He asked my tastes, and then brought me many samples of the different dishes, explaining to me how to eat them. I can't believe I haven't done this before! He seemed to enjoy helping me as much as I enjoyed the meal. It was probably the best breakfast I have ever had - And certainly the best experience with breakfast. I STRONGLY suggest you ask for help, and try something new. You're in India... Eat an Indian breakfast!!! I can't thank my wonderful server enough for helping me out.
The workout facility was great - Clean, everything worked well, open 24 hours, and during the day, there's an assistant to wipe off the equipment.
The hotel is a bit set away from much of anything - Nowhere to really walk around (Not that I wanted to leave), and the security will be a bit jarring for anyone new here (Car inspections, metal detectors, and X-ray machines will greet you), but after a few days, and seeing security everywhere, you get used to it.
This is my company's hotel of choice in the Delhi area, and I am really looking forward to my next visit. Bravo, Courtyard Gurgaon!
