The hotel overall does not shout out WOW, though they claim the hotel has been overhauled it's not true. The public areas are so so.
We booked the deluxe rooms which had been renovated and its crisp and wonderful. However they tried a quick one by trying to give us a non renovated room saying it is the new deluxe, but since I had stayed here before I was able to distinguish between both. Only after I made it clear, I knew what I was talking abt he accepted. So always look for the black furniture in the rooms instead of the white as those are the rooms without the new amenities.
Check in & check out is a major issue,as we had plenty of problems and so did other guests. When we spoke abt this to a new indian manager from Bangalore, he was willing to correct it rather than the usual indian talk.
Food was superb and the main restaurants chef was willing to make what we wanted as a la carte.
Will I return again- NO ( as there is plenty of other options in the vicinity.
