If going for a US visa interview - a great place to be in terms of location. The hotel provide a one way complimentary trip to the US consulate and the OFC site. The auto drivers have a few trick up their sleeve which help you get in front of the line too.The auto drivers make up for the complimentary drop off by charging double the price when returning you back to the hotel(beware!!). The room was clean and well maintained. The room service was prompt. You would to arrange for breakfast from another place if your visa interview appointment is scheduled between 730 to 830 as the breakfast gets ready only by 730AM.
Overall, the experience was better than the many I have had in the past.
The only thing that travellers(who plan on paying at the hotel) need to ensure is that the price quoted on your receipt should match with the rates sent by Cleartrip to the hotel. Cleartrip sent rates higher than that quoted on my printed receipt (without the discount offered) to the hotel - which resulted in a lot of confusion and disagreement. I would say the satisfaction of the stay was killed by the poor services provided by CLEARTRIP!!!
