There's really only one choice to get this level of hotel in Rishikeh, and it's here. Hotel is currently under renovation, so beware noise, dust and the closed restaurant - which is ranked one of the best restaurants in Rishikesh. Still, they will bring you wonderful room service and set you up on the terrace for dinner if it's not raining. We ate in town several times and regretted it -- Ganga Kinare's was the best food we found in all of Rishikesh.
The complimentary morning yoga, afternoon meditation and evening aarti service make this place also worthwhile. Spa is nice, and it's lovely to be on the river.
For runners or anyone looking to walk off the calories: there's a 2km path along the Ganges accessed directly from the hotel. All these features: delicious food, opportunity for walking/running, yoga/meditation, proximity to the city, view of the river from the rooms, make this the best and only choice in Rishikesh.
