I stayed overnight. Check in was efficient. The room was clean and well appointed. I was disappointed that they did not have CNN on their television channels. The food from room-service was excellent, particularly the Asian dishes. I recommend the tandoori chicken, mutton Rogan Josh and naan. Room service staff were attentive and gave prompt service. They fussed about taking... More

From the time they have greeted me until I've checked out, I felt like I was home away from home. The in house restaurant severed all types of cuisine (The indian food rocked!), the lobby staff was friendly. I'd definitely stay at this hotel again! I can't complain especially with their awesome rates.
