When I'm traveling here in the States, I'm a Motel 6 type of guy so getting to stay here on business for a number of weeks was overwhelming. They have so many staff members it made my headspin. Guy opens car door, guy opens hotel door, desk personnel greet you, guy opens the elevator for you...it was over the top for me, but in a good way.
The room service was great too. Anything you wanted. My mini bar refrigerator wasn't working properly and that got fixed within minutes. It was crazy.
You can't really walk anywhere easily though...but that seems par for the course. There is a little grocery store about a five minute walk that has anything you need if you wanted to stock up on some snacks.
The power does go off for a minute at most every afternoon, but that seems to be the norm.
That Chinese restaurant and Indian restaurant are awesome. Try the hot and sour soup. I didn't get a chance to eat at the Italian one.
And the nightclub is cool. Apparently there's often actors and actress from Indian films there...but I wouldn't recognize them so I took peoples word for it.
And the laundry is great too. I'd get my shirts sent back all folded and wrapped up with cardboard. My NASCAR shirt getting the royal treatment always brought a smile to my face.
And the remote where you can control the lights and the curtains from the bed was awesome too.
