nice hotel in general. excellent restaurants and breakfast excellent selection for everything. we felt like there were waaaay too many people in the front lobby in suits, making it feel a bit stressed. although we got everything we needed, there was a sense of lonliness maybe because it was so big and marbley. felt a bit cold. and in warm south india, thats not a good thing. bar was nice, again has everything but lacking some warmth i guess is the only thing i can summarize it as. all the staff were efficient and helpful. there isn't much to do within walking distance. taxi required or a rickshaw if you're willing :) pool was gorgeous.
