“Fabulous Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

We travel frequently to Amritsar and only now we begin to find, big chains wanting a piece of this pie.
Our last stay at Ista (now Hyatt) was not that great, and therefore we were a little apprehensive about a property as new as this one- it's been open for only a couple of months or so. Well, we took the chance and I am happy to say, it was for the best.

Even if you are extremely critical, you can't find a fault with the cleanliness, the linen, the furnishings, the fittings- they are all brand NEW...the staff as well. And while the former will wear out with use, the staff will and should, only get better. That said, they were really courteous and eager to please .

The food has been consistently the best throughout any stay mostly anywhere. Please excuse my mixing up of names, but I do believe it was Ajay, who was responsible for excellently poached eggs in the morning (better than what I had this morning at the Hyatt in Delhi- the quality of eggs though could def improve) as well as superlative scrambled eggs for my husband. We had a small hiccup during the lunch, but I am sure reading this, the GM/RM will address the issue.

It is very easy to spoil the simplest of things, and I am delighted to say that the management has put in a lot of thought into details.

Staff to mention:
Kartik at the front desk
Lucky at the pool
Balbir valet

and everyone else.

We stayed at the pool facing suite and had a great stay. Loved the bathrooms- my biggest sour point with hotel rooms.

Suggestions:

Free Wifi

Some bath salts/ bath soap handy or in reserve for the rooms that have a tub.

Room Tip: They are all pretty good!

I had to email the hotel since it was brand new & not on the IHG site for booking. So I had to take a little extra trouble & it was more than worth it! I got an upgrade to a suite & it was all unexpectedly simply fabulous! If U go to Amritsar for work or pleasure then stay at the new holiday Inn there. Very reasonable rates with 5 star super friendly service!

Forest Gump said "Life is like a Box of Chocolate...you never know what you get". Well a new hotel is akin to this philosophy. We have seen umpteen times, a new fancy Hotel opening with ultra modern gadgets and beautiful façade but with a misplaced soul. Similar to many big budget movies releasing every Friday. That's why reviewing a new Hotel is to re-assure the sceptics.

Holiday Inn at Amritsar is an abode designed with a soul of standing to strong principals of hospitality. We were perhaps the first corporate group to take the Hotel in totality for a prestigious conference in August. Our negotiations started while the Hotel was still under construction and we had only the lofty dreams and plans that the management of the Hotel had to offer. Well, they sold us their dream.

The Hotel is located in Ranjit Avenue, closer to the city and say 20 minutes away from both the Airport and Railway Station in peak traffic. The rooms are simply awesome and the Hotel offers state of art gym, swimming pool and fitness centre.

The hotel is made on modern theme which is fresh and comforting. The air quality is good and the staff although new has undergone a training of more than 3-4 months at this very venue. So, the expectations of comfort that one expects from a Holiday Inn are well met and surpassed.

Food quality is inventive and the presentation is good. Wonder why the chef is as slim as a ramp model still puzzles me.... The restaurant offers good picks from the world cuisine and we loved both the Indian and South eastern/European picks. Soups and few local Punjabi picks, perhaps need some work.

Although a new Hotel with expected teething troubles, the management went out of the way to ensure that the guests were pampered. At the end, we got more than we paid. Thanks, and all the best.
