Was here for a reunion with friends. this place has a nice coffee shop, nice shopping and nice games as well. But the location of the place on a crowded road is interesting to say the least..

I just love this hotel for everything. there are several pages that I can write about my experiences at this hotel.

I just enjoyed the BMW airport transfer on arrival, the room.

The mattresses are just perfect for a good night sleep. The view from the room was amazing.

Really enjoyed our stay, we were met at the airport by the hotel car, it all ran like clockwork, all the staff were really professional. We booked the room from the night before as we arrived on the London flight at 04.15. We stayed on the club level which was definately worth doing. We tried all the restaurants in the evening except the european one, all were good. The hotel is really stunning, nicely furnished rooms the level of service was excellent (as you would find at the Fourseasons), Pool and Gym were good. Could'nt fault it ,we would definately stay again. We flew down to the Maldives after 2 days, spent 6 days there and flew back for another 2 nights at the Leela before returning to London, much better than going through Dubai.

Leela requires no introduction to tourists travelling to India. The Leela has established itself in no time in the League of champions and a bit ahead of the pack.

The investment that has gone into this property, the richness of the architecture, the furnishings, the rich flora and fauna, the opulent restaurants, of course the royal lobby......is all a unique experience.

Having stayed in Leela twice in the last two years I would like to share my personal two bits of pluses and minuses-
PLUSES -
1) the Porch - (Which is possible only in Bangalore or perhaps in Goa aka Marriott) - open and spacious, away from the humdrum (which is actually very close) with some very nice seating arrangements, overlooking the lush greens. The dwarfing entry doors on either side for the hotel and the shopping side - FABULOUS,
2) The opening towards the restaurant in the garden - wonderful,
3) Of course - the lavish lobby,
4) the rooms - LARGE (yet not compensating for the 350+USD you have to shell out-just for the night) and lavishly furnished, are a delight in class and taste.
5) the garden in the centre - small but unique and a pleasure to roam around in.
6) the Location - close to the city,(in Bengaluru this point may matter themost actually!!)

Of course, almost everything is perfect - the swimming pool is nice, the service is without a fuss and the attitude is right.

Minuses -
a) Price - way too high. Even if you consider that this is "The Leela" and even if it is "Bengaluru" - yet the price somehow does not fit.
b) Space - for a property of this caliber and this brand - the property is cramped, with very little space and the garden(though very well done) is not what you would expect and is more a good backdrop to the lobby/restaurants etc.. than a green in its own right.

Anyway - surely worth a try...

Stayed: November 2008, traveled on business
