Just returned from one of the best weekend breaks we had in a very long time…..courtesy Westin Westin and only Westin!!!!
Every aspect of our 2nights and 3days was perfect just how we wanted it to be.... We availed of the ‘Eat Drink and More Membership’, wherein we were offered complimentary meals, discounts and loads of goodies that is valid for one year.
To start with the Check In was a breeze with an amazing welcome drink offered to us on arrival…which totally refreshed us after our 3 hour BOM-Pune drive.
The Room was big + kid friendly and safe…which was perfect for our 2 year old to prance around from one end to the other. Also, we had requested for a room on the topmost level with a river view and it was provided to us alongwith the possibilities of having an early check-in!!!
The Bed as Westin claims it to be…was HEAVENLY!!! The sight from the 09th floor was an amazing panoramic view of the river and the luscious greens of Koregaon Park.
The Dining: We dined at Prego and Seasonal Tastes. I must emphasize that the Italian Chef at Prego, Mr. Federico Volpi…personally came to our table in order to indicate the ingredients that would be used in the Rissotto (since we weren’t sure about the ingredients that would be added) Also later, he made it a point to check with us that it was to our perfection and according to our tastes…just how we wanted it to be, in-fact even better..…”Grazie Signor Volpi… il cibo era perfetto”
At Seasonal Tastes, the breakfast and buffet spread for lunches & dinners was sumptuous. With various live counters tossing up Noodles, various oriental delicacies, hot-dogs, sushi’s, et.al!!!
I would also like to accentuate, although there wasn’t any specific pasta counter (my daughter being a huge pasta fan) one of the chefs specifically rustled up a perfect Alfredo Pasta..just for her…twice, during lunch and dinner…at no additional cost…I think this was extremely considerate of him, given the fact that we didn’t ask for it, perhaps… he sensed our anticipation I guess. Sadly when we wanted to personally thank him and know his name…he was no where around!!!
The property is very well located in mere proximity of the various sightseeing attractions Pune boasts of.....the Osho center, Aga Khan Palace, German bakery and the 'now famous' malls...infact there's this newly opened mall adjoining the hotel premises.
The check-out procedure also was hassle free (unlike other hotels).
Now I could really go on n on....but I gotta stop!!!!
Anyway, Overall we had an awesome time at The Westin and the next time we're in Pune....its always gonna be The Westin!!!
Thanks guys...each one of U are doing an excellent job!!!!
P.S: I jus received my lifetime SPG membership card....can hardly wait to explore the other properties of this group! :-)
