“Quiet luxury in the midst of Bangalore's bustle”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

My husband and I have been more or less living in the ITC Windsor for the past 3 months since he is staffed on a case in Bangalore. This place is in every way a delight, and we haven't had a disappointing day or night yet. We've been traveling extensively throughout India on weekends, and we've had the good fortune of staying in some of India's top hotels (The Taj Palace in Mumbai, the Lake Palace in Udaipur). While the ITC Windsor & its clientele is not quite as fancy as those, there are a couple of things we've noticed that earn it extra points in our minds, particularly since it falls at a significantly lower price point per night:

1. The breakfast buffet has a selection and quality that is unrivaled anywhere else we've been - piles of fresh fruits, different types of yogurt & curd, continental foods, but the best is the Indian spread, which has so many (so tasty) options, and they change the selection up each day. Be sure to order coconut water (served in the coconut), masala chai, and a masala dosa.

2. If you stay in the Tower, the daily open bar happy hours from 6-8 are such a treat. Indian wines & beers, any cocktail you like, even hot & cold Indian snacks - all complimentary. In the library area, you can watch cricket or the news while imbibing.

3. The pool is lovely. Completely clean, with a nice poolside menu, and plenty of shade available.

4. The staff is terrific - everyone is elegantly dressed, they bow and say, "Namaste" as you pass through the lobby. Also, the lobby itself is gorgeous - a marble fountain with floating candles and lotus flowers, live music, a marble staircase...

5. The restaurant selection is varied & all of them are good. In our opinion, Dakshin, the south Indian restaurant, is the best.

My only gripe is that the concierge isn't very helpful and when it comes to booking events or reservations, or finding local resources, you're pretty much on your own.

Advice:

-We have stayed both in the main part of the hotel & the Tower. From what we can tell, there isn't a significant difference in room size or in service. Your money's probably better saved by staying in the main/manor hotel. But the aforementioned happy hours are only available to Tower guests.

-If you're going to have some free time around the hotel, request a garden-access room. The garden is so splendidly maintained with shaded tables and chairs for working, a gazebo, plenty of bottled water, etc. It's practically an oasis.

-If you're into shopping, the store in the hotel itself has some really high quality, not exorbitant embroidered Kashmiri goods. I shopped all over the country for the Kashmiri coats & scarves, and wound up with my best purchases being here.

-If you want to wander out for some light afternoon browsing, the Raintree shopping complex is right over the ITC bridge - less than a two minute walk. Inside is a cute cafe with tasty pastries, Anokhi, Ritu Kumar, and some other higher end clothing & accessory shops.

As you truly mentioned Raj Pavilion our all day dining restaurant exemplifies an elaborate spread for breakfast and also during the Lunch and Dinner. We do have fine options for Vegetarians and the next you are here, our Chef would be delighted to make you feel special…

This unique terrace garden is an important element of ITC Windsor. Discreetly located and only accessible through rooms at the same level. “The Lancelot Garden” created in the style of gardens in English Country Manors with arches and climbing roses, reflects the colonial influences that have contributed to the growth of this beautiful city and also reinforces the ‘garden’ aspect of Bengaluru.”

Thank you for your comments once again… We certainly look forward to welcome you back in the not so distant future.

Found this coffee shop at the grand Windsor Manor Hotel to be quite relaxing. The small bowl of veg noodle that we had ordered was well done with crunchy vegetables and just right amount of oil. Even though the buffet seemed to be the popular thing, I decided to abstain from over eating and decided to order a few from the a la carte menu. The food was served promptly and each one of them was well done and very tasty. However, there was no refill for coffee. Found it to be Very pricy but was worth it as the quality of food served was excellent.

The ITC Windsor is a nice, business style hotel. Service is courteous and efficient. The restaurants are all very good. We especially liked Dakshin with its extensive menu focusing on the cooking of southern India. The breakfast buffet offers an unbelievable buffet selection as well as cooked to order items. The offerings encompass Indian, Chinese and European cooking. We stayed in many very fine hotels throughout India and the food at this hotel truly stands out.

Every time I stay at the ITC Windsor, I am touched by the care they offer a tired business traveller! The staff are trained to attend to your special needs, and make each stay so memorable.

The location is excellent, particularly if you are getting in from the airport during the evening rush hour. The rooms are very well appointed and classy to a fault. But the friendliness and the helpful attitude of each staff is what sets the ITC Windsor apart from other business hotels.

The group is well known for the culinary excellence, but the coffee shop of this hotel is something special. The decor and ambiance adds to the quality of the experience. The breakfast is great and is a super way to start the day. And if you like a non spicy light, yet gourmet supper, the coffee shop is the best place to go to!

Room Tip: The suites are very special!

This hotel was always on my must-stay list. It's on the way from the airport to the city center. The hotel is a historic building and you can opt to stay in the old wing or the new wing of the hotel. The hotel is close to the Golf Course and if you are lucky to stay on the higher floors, you can see the great green plains of the golf course.

The ambiance is great and the service impeccable. The rooms in the old wing have an old-world charm to it The furniture seems historic (though not rusty or old) and the room feels great even though it is sparsely decorated. We had got the entire hotel booked and so we were pretty much satisfied with the service. The pool area is great and the pool-view from the restaurant is amazing..!
overall, a nice comfortable stay...!

Room Tip: If you want to stay in a place which has an old world charm to it and be luxurious at the same time...
