We stayed at a number of hotels in Mumbai and Southern India. Aside from the Residency Towers, we also stayed at the Ambassador Pallava. We came across the Residency Towers because our friend was having her wedding reception there. The hotel was new, clean, and had a sports centre (gym, pool, spa). You can access the internet from your rooms for Rp 100 p/hr or Rp 500 for 24 hours. As for the style of the hotel, it may be more of a business hotel than a romantic getaway, but I'm not sure if there are hotels in the latter catagory in India.
I did have some problems trying to commmunicate to the staff. On one occasion, I ordered a soup through room service and they delivered it without a spoon. I called room service and spoke to a lady who spoke very bad English, so after a while she asked if she could call me back. AFter 20 minutes she still hadnt. I called again and spoke to the same lady who passed the phone to (presumably) the manager who seemingly understood my problem and promised to send someone to bring me a spoon - it never came.
The Ambassador Pallava (and all the other hotels we stayed at in Mahabaripuram, Pondichery and Mumbai for that matter) paled in comparison. It was very dated (I especially cant stand dated bathrooms as they often just look like dirty bathrooms) and yet more expensive than the Residency Towers. They did have free internet access on the lobby level (2 computers and wireless access for those with their own computers) and a sports centre (although we didnt try it out).
