You can compare this property to any Hilton Garden Inn or the Marriott Courtyard hotel in the US. In the US, we are accustomed to huge properties with garden etc in a nice surrounding. This place is in the main center of town so to speak, if you are an Indian like me, you would not mind the location. There are multiple eating options within 5 minutes walking distance - Crystal being one of them. Also dont miss the Kulfa shop couple of shops next to the hotel while walking towards Crystal restaurant.
The hotel itself has a good restaurant, but the prices are little bit on the higher side, but then you get the crowd free environment within the confines of the hotel. The hotel itself is excellent, as I said can compare to any Courtyard or Garden Inn from the States, the staff super friendly and helpful. Very clean.
Only thing is found missing was a English news channel in the hotel cable TV. At least they should have BBC World Service, CNN, or Al Zazeera English.
Distance to Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum - 5 minute walk
Rickshaw rate to the Golden Temple - Indian Rupees 30
Time taken from Airport - 35-40 minutes
As others have said, they also can organize a cab to go to the Wagah border for the evening flag lowering ceremony. Read my reviews on that too!
