The traffic in Bangalore and the resulting traffic jams are something to be seen to be believed - if you are staying in the wrong location you can spend hours in the car getting to and from the office.
If you are working in Whitefield, well, the Vivanta by Taj is an excellent choice. The hotel is modern, the rooms - while not luxurious - are perfectly adequate. The floor to ceiling windows create a bright and airy atmosphere.
There is a Jiva spa on site (which I did not use, the facilities looked very nice though). You can sit aound the pool if you have spare time; we were spoilt with a succession of fresh fruit and scoops of ice cream.
Breakfast offers something for everybody ranging from curry to Asian soup to waffles - and anything else you can think of. The staff are great and nothing is enough trouble for them.
You can have dinner in the main restaurant (where breakfast is served) and there is a very good restaurant onsite (Terracotta).
I asked for a hotel pick-up from the airport, the driver was waiting for me in the arrival hall.
There is a large mall, Phoenix Mall, which is easily reached by taxi or tuk-tuk. the mall next to the hotel is very limited.
My only complaint: I would have preferred a bath as well as a shower.
There is not much to do within the vicinity of the hotel - but it is very easy to get a taxi from the hotel to take you anywhere in the city.
I would definitely go back.
