This is a little technical, but bear with me: Like a lot of Indian hotels, the air conditioners are old and tired and overworked and don't get proper maintenance. So their cooling coils do not operate cold enough to condense moisture in the air and reduce humidity. So you end up with cool and humid air which feels clammy. So they run the air conditioners longer and harder until the rooms are too cold. If you turn off the air conditioner the room won't warm up for days because its a room-cave of marble (no carpet) that will remain cold soaked for days. Either way, the effect is like living in a cave--cold, humid and clammy.
The food is so-so to ok, and the furnishings on their umpteenth coat of varnish atop wall-to-wall beautiful marble. Location is convenient to the airport, which you probably knew or you wouldn't be considering staying here in the first place. The other good hotels in town require a grueling ride through one of the most congested towns in India.
