One would really have to scrape the dissatisfaction barrel to find something less than complementary about this large, but oddly intimate establishment. Service is exemplary at every level, with an attention to detail and personal consideration of the highest order. Dinner at the Varq restaurant is a must. Extraordinary food and wonderful service, with a very comprehensive wine list.
How many hotels do you know where a very busy breakfast area is still a haven of impeccable, individualized service? This is a really well managed hotel.
My deluxe room was rather small, and the bathroom rather too small to be comfortable, but very well appointed and well maintained. Room servicing was state of the art.
The spa is limited - basically an extended gym, but I had one of the best massages of my life. Chose carefully - and go for a robust deep tissue treatment with one of the gentleman masseurs. I came out of that massage room feeling an inch taller than when I hobbled in - and I slept like a baby for 9 hours straight. Bliss.
The building is a bit of an eyesore from the outside, but once inside it is all style, taste and attentive calm. Screaming kids seemed rather more absent than present. They seem to have this under control. I even saw an Indian waiter ask a couple of negligent parents to calm their obnoxious little raja. Wow.
Laundry service - perfect.
I'm a merciless reviewer about crummy hotels, so a complement from me is hard to extract. If you are looking for style, calm, considerable comfort and world class service, look no further. Plus, I got a very attractive deal.
Internet access was a bit patchy. Otherwise - faultless.
