As everyone may know, most of India (if not all of it) faces severe power shortages during summers. This year, it was even worse in the National Capital Region (NCR, which comprises of New Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida). I stayed in this hotel for 2 full weeks in June 2014, the HOTTEST time of the year, when the average day temperature is around 42C, and goes up to 49C for 2-3 days !
Because of this hot weather and power shortage, the hotel's air-conditioning struggles to cool the room and common areas...and it keeps tripping very often as it switches from regular power to generator (whenever the power goes). Hence, I had a tough time sleeping. I must say that this situation improved towards the last 5-6 days of my stay, but the first week of horrendous, and I could manage just 3-4 hours of proper sleep. I presume the situation may be much better during the other months (avoid May/June if possible).
There is a flat-TV (new Samsung ones) in all rooms. However, the number of channels is woefully limited to 2 or 3 news channels and 1 or 2 other channels. None of the big channels (especially sports) were available. So in short, the TV experience was almost zero.
The bathroom is too small, its like a modular bathroom fitted into the room.
My room was on the 2nd floor, the 'smoking room floor' and there was a constant stench of burnt out cigarettes. I guess by the second week, I got used it !
Service, like most hotels in India, is very good. The quality + variety of the breakfast and dinner buffets (I had lunch at office) were great. The house keeping and the quality of laundry (iron/wash/dry clean) were also good and relatively reasonably priced.
The hotel has a travel desk and can arrange pick-ups and drops when booked in advance.
There is a bar next to the restaurant which can seat around 20+ people but I didn't get any opportunity to visit it.
I was a solo traveller on business and stay for 2 weeks in June 2014.
