So I am a serial traveler, I travel 80 percent a year on average. Normally i stay at Hilton, this time not having a Hilton near my office, I decided to try a boutique hotel. I have stayed their 14 days straight with a colleague and have re-booked another 10 nights as of now.
So lets start with the rooms, lets be frank if you are a US traveler generally anywhere else you stay rooms seem small, personally I sleep and watch TV in my room so I had no issues, decor is very modern, the staff is rock star, as an example one of the team members offered to take my colleague out shopping on her day off since he was new to India. its the small things like having a car always their for me, that most of the staff knows my name. when you are on extended stays this helps. they have happy hour from 11 am to 10 I think b1g1 drinks for Indian liquor. This is definitely not a family hotel as its geared towards the business crowd but for business in Bangalore this is where I stay. Also the food is excellent, if you are looking for true traditional Indian this may not be the spot.if you want good Indian / Chinese / continental this kitchen is excellent. Their pastry chef rocks, also on a side note coming "home" to a free small pastry in my room every night is kind of cool. Also their is a fridge in the room it has some minibar items, but on extended stays its nice to have a fridge.
Only reason I give location a 3 is that this is Bangalore so driving 10 Km to the mall or a restaurant at night is a 45 minute trip. nothing really to walk to
