We stayed here for one night on the 23rd of September & the experience was not up to the high standards that one can expect from the Taj group. I had done a reservation for 2 superior rooms & was informed by the person at the taj reservations that both the rooms had a double bed with a bath tub.However on our arrival at the hotel when we were shown to our rooms I was shocked to see that both the rooms had twin beds & no bath tubs.
After a few calls to the front office desk we were upgraded to the executive rooms which had bath tubs but no double beds & they had housekeeping join the 2 beds.Since we had an infant with us it was very uncomfortable as there was a gap between the 2 beds.Also the AC in room 514 was not working & I had to wake up sweating early in the morning to call the front desk & have them send someone to have it checked, which in spite of his efforts had no improvement in the cooling.
My experience at this hotel has been terrible except for some exceptional service at the front desk by Chandini who tried her best to make our stay comfortable & Chopra at the restaurant who was very good.
Except for an excellent view of the Taj Mahal this hotel doesn’t have anything else to offer & I would definitely not want to stay here again.
