We stayed for 3 nights 26th Dec - 29th Dec 2014 for the first night in a standard room and the next 2 nights in the suite. We were pretty much in the hotel all 3 days since my husband had a bad bout of viral. I would say the place is very clean and comfortable but only if you are going there at night simply to crash. We were travelling with a 10m old, and i would say that it's much less than ideal if travelling with a baby. First - no running hot water in winter - 3 hours in the morning and 3 hours in the evening only. At all other times you need to call the reception - which you will realize that in winters is not ideal at all.
Secondly - no hot water kettle even in the suite..which again, very inconvenient with a baby when you need hot water.
These are things i assumed all good hotels have nowadays - so unfortunately hadn't checked.
Also - no room service - which after my requests was made available since my husband had a bad bout of viral and we couldn't step out at all. Even then, the staff at first did not agree until i asked the manager to step in. I must say, the manager Mr. Shankar Singh was very helpful but each time i needed something, at first i would need to find him and request him to intervene with his staff on my behalf. Mr. Singh himself - very helpful, even took my husband to a doctor.
The suite was very tastefully done/Indian ethnic in feel - but since we were stuck in the room all the time, realized that it was very poorly lit to do anything like read a book. Also, it was very very noisy all day and even at night - traffic outside and some construction going on upstairs.
So all in all - probably good if you don't have to spend any time there - and just need a good clean, comfortable bed at night to sleep in; not if you end up staying there during the day and have special requests. Certainly not recommended with an infant.
