For an active retired couple visiting Ahmedabad, there's not a lot of choice of where to stay at the top-ish end. If you like one-off boutique hotels, and if you have the money and if they have a vacancy, then the House of MG is the best choice. But for a lot less money you can stay in the modern and slightly impersonal Royal Orchid.
The location is not bad: it is on the other side of the river from the Old Town, but in a side-street near Ashram Road. When we were there, the swimming pool and entrance were being done up. (I'm not sure how usable the pool will be since the space for it looked pretty small), but the fitness centre was good. Food in the dining room was fine, and breakfast good. The rooms were spacious and well equipped. And the staff were kind and efficient. It's all a bit bland, but we'll stay there again and would recommend it as a safe choice.
If you are coming from Europe and wear glasses, here's a great tip: Kumar Opticians nearby in Ashram Road will make you a pair (standard, bi-focal varifocal, tinted) very quickly, to the highest standards at a staggeringly internet-busting cheap price.
If you like beautiful things, go and see the Mill Owners Association Building, further along on Ashram Road. It is without doubt one of the greatest buildings of the 20th century and one of Le Corbusier's masterpieces, lovingly preserved.
