This is my new favorite hotel. There is only one word for this place - PERFECT. I arrived as a guest and my daughter and I were treated with such kindness it will hard for me to ever forget this magical place. Although the hotel is situated in the city center there is no need to leave the hotel. Amenities are superb and food in the various outlets delicious. Although all staff were amazing a special thank you to Karen and Frank for making such a big fuss of my little girl. I can't wait to return to this inner city sanctuary. I had initially requested a table view but we were in a family suite which was spectacular with night time city views. During the day we could see the path to The Company Gardens. We were on a higher floor with complete sound proofing from the outside world and the beds were very comfortable.

I would suggest to stay at the TAJ HOTEL just because the balance of price, room features, restaurant, breakfast and service it is simply the best possible ever. I have been at Taj in NYC but if you consider that this hotel is part of a chain I can tell you that the features are really the same.

We have the privilege to travel regularly with our kids. This was our 2nd visit (first without kids, now with kids). Was very impressed with how they accommodated the children. High Tea and Bombay was a treat!

Positives: Jiva spa - I have visited alot of spas accross the country but Jiva might be the very best. The therapists, the ambiance and the actual treatments were superb. Breakfast- everything was delicious and there was a great variety. Smell- the hotel has the most beautiful smell that makes you feel relaxed as soon as you walk in. Staff the valet service and managers do go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable Opportunity areas: service can be a bit slow and there were a few issues with room but these were resolved once we brought to management attention
