I did not stay at this hotel but visited to attend a party in December 2012. Although the hotel looks nice, if the banquet facilities are any indication of the rest of the hotel, I would not want to stay here.
As soon as I entered, I saw a small counter with a "For Sale" sign on my right and thought I would have a look to see if they have some interesting local curios. Funnily, the counter was displaying and selling toothbrushes, combs and sundries like that with a price list also in the display case. Funny thing to keep right up at the entrance!
The party I attended was at two levels - 9th and 10th floor - banquet hall and on the terrace. The banquet hall is quite nice, big and decently air-conditioned. But for a hall of this size and with say typically 50-100 people in attendance - it has one small pathetic little excuse for a toilet; and even that is so poorly maintained. I don't know what they were thinking when they designed that place.
The terrace area has a small pool and semi-outdoor/indoor party area. The pool did not appear to be in regular use to me. Again in this entire floor - there were two bathrooms only (men and women each) which are part of the showering area for the pool - really pathetic condition and only for one person each.There aren't even any urinals in the men's.
Before the dinner started on the terrace, I noticed two of the staff members spitting their paan juice into the waste bins kept for keeping the used plates. While at dinner, I noticed one of the servers grab some sweets from a tray, stuff it in his pocket and quickly wander away...
There were other such irritants, but I guess you get the idea.
All in all, I was quite disappointed and would not recommend this place.
