Stayed here after the Taj Palace so they had a tough act to follow. Overall, a good experience and certainly the perfect location if you want easy airport access without feeling you are staying at the end of the runway - and their pool area is particularly lush.
That said, in my personal situation I felt I was always having to try and chase up service. They don't serve any drinks by the pool after 5 PM which seems absurdly early for those that are on business during the day and want to come back to some pool time. 6 PM would be much more acceptable. Equally you can't get served tea in the lobby lounge late, staff vanish come 11pm and they just point you to a coffee bar. For an international five star airport hotel it should be much more 24-hour service in the bar/lobby. Lastly, their hotel car airport transfer is absurdly priced at aprx 14000 INR, if its a BMW. Thats as much to go 2 minutes round the corner as I have been charged elsewhere in the city for private cars to transfer to over an hour away. You have the alternative of an air-conditioned taxi but only if they can find you one which in my case took quite some time.
That said would likely use again as an airport base only.
