ITC Gardenia has no qualms in admitting they are over 35 Kms away from the airport and that drive alone can take well over an hour to complete. But that said, this being my first time in any ITC hotel, I was impressed with the warm reception I received upon arrival. The filling out the forms and other formalities must have taken all of five minutes or less.
Just as I was about to leave the front desk, I was presented with a filigree silk scarf. I was a little surprised until I found my colleagues deciding on which colour to pick on this visit when I realised this was a regular welcome gesture.
The rooms were absolutely clean and I tried to look through a critical eye to pick faults with the place and I must admit, I couldn't find a thing out of place. I ordered a room service for late lunch and tried some of their Mysore Chilli Chicken and Malabar Paratha. The food was yummy and it was all neatly laid out on a large tray which was cleared just as promptly at the requested time.
The btah is large and clean with a tub and a shower cubicle.In the bathroom, I noticed this little green tag hanging from one of the light fittings where the Hotel proudly displays the initiatives it has taken to recycle the water making it more ECO friendly.
The bar in the lobby offers free drinks as part of the happy hours between 6 and 8 PM and is a nice place to gather around while you wait for someone to come and take you out for the evening.If you were to retun to the bar for a late night drink after dinner, you would be in for a treat to watch a beautiful lady with a lovely voice sing to you.
Although I stayed in the hotel only for twenty four hours, I go away with good memories and would definitely recommend it to any business traveller.

The hotel is conceived as a building set in a garden, where interiors and exteriors amalgamate into each other with the realm of architectural aesthetics and landscaping sensibilities.
