“A good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

On our way back, my family and I stayed overnight in the Lalit. I got a good rate from makemytrip and the hotel did not charge anything extra for an early check in! Good. One of the biggest lobbies that I have seen in hotels must belong to this one and is well kept at the same time. Rooms are big and comfortable. Baths have separate showers and tubs. Minibar is well stocked, service is on the slower side though as it took two calls to get the coffee maker that wasn't working fixed. We didn't try the restaurants though. Pool is on the bigger side. Breakfast is very lavish if you are a non vegetarian.

I have stayed during dec 2013. check in and check out were easy. Breakfast good variety okay taste for vegetarians. the services of waiters was too poor. we have to wait for tea and coffee for at least 25 minutes each time. and last day was so horrible people were eating breakfast while standing as no room for sitting. I have seen such scenario for the first time in five star hotel. room quality good. overall average hotel because of service part.

Room Tip: the advantage near to airport.

I frequently travel to Mumbai and have stayed at various hotels around the city as I could never find a hotel that was the right mix of value for the money paid.

I believe I have found the perfect fit at "The Lalit"

To start off with the location is perfect on the Sahar Airport road in close proximity to both the terminals.

My booking was done online and the airport pick up and check in was a breeze and I had selected a room with lounge access. The lobby is truly impressive. But what was a minor hiccup were the elevators, they plain refused to work with the key access cards, I replaced the keys and it still refused to budge till the third set of keys were issued.

The health club is quite good and has some pretty decent equipment.

The restaurants are supposedly award winning and they are quite fabulous, a word of caution though, they are a bit pricey. The food quality was amazing, the staff attentive and well informed! I was recommended a pairing of a crisp white wine with a spaghetti wrapped fish... simply amazing! The presentation was fantastic as well! The service though was a little slow in most of the outlets.

The spa experience was overall very good, the masseuse was quite the expert and the price was quite reasonable!

All in all "The Lalit" got ticks in all the right boxes.

I have stayed at the Lalit Mumbai at east 10 times & I have given it a good review in the past. But, I need to share this after my latest stay (Dec 2013).
One day, when I was waiting in the lobby for my friend to pick me up in his car, I saw the whole staff lined up around the entrance with rapt attention...couple of the staff had bouquets/garland in their hands. I figured that some celebrity (or, Political leader) was about to show up. In the meantime, my friend called to inform me that he is unable to drive into the hotel because the parking lot is full. Then, I saw a Mercedes pull in and a bunch of guys got out. All the staff members rushed in to greet these people. When I asked 1 of the staff members, I was told that the owner of the hotel had showed up. All the staff were fully engrossed in showing the various amenities of the hotel to the owner & his entourage. The guests were abandoned, vehicle movements inside the hotel were monitored as if Barak Obama had landed up.
This is typical sycophancy that used to permeate all of India until recently, but, to see it in this day & age was disturbing. When you go through this hotel, you will see framed pictures of the owner (and past owners) adorn the property, when you turn on the TV, you will see the owners playing golf & cuddling their pets etc. I think, this is taking things too far.
My advice will be to run the hotel professionally & avoid the irrational exuberance.
It is a fine hotel with fantastic service.....please cut out the crap.

It was a unique experience to stay at the property. It is rare that you remember names of eigght staff members due to excellent service. These are Andleeb, Parmeshwaran, Rajesh all chefs and Prashant, Debu, Aditya and Satish the reastaurant staff. Resevation executive Amit Shah was also of great help.
So far hardware is concerned grat place. Lobby of the place is unique and rare not only in size but ambience too. Gym is good. House keeping staff excellent ready to immediately meet your needs.

Would like stay again.
