Clearly you only stay here if you need access to/from Mumbai airport, but compared to so many horrible hotels at airports, this was a breath of fresh air. A huge, lively place, it has stacks to offer, and rooms and public areas are all very nice indeed.
The central lagoon area with aquarium, bars, restaurants etc looks amazing, but unfortunately we weren't able to experience it because it was closed due to a multi-day wedding function! Thought I wouldn't sleep either because the disco was in the lagoon area and all the rooms are arranged around it, but the music was cut promptly at 11pm as we were promised it would be.
If you're sensitive to noise when sleeping, you may have issues as all rooms have a balcony onto the lagoon, and the doors that open onto them aren't double glazed and are certainly not noise-proof. I slept soundly, thought, but don't mind a bit of background noise.
Room was very nice, large and modern, with a real designer feel to it. Nice bathroom with walk-in shower. All necessary amenities.
The (Indian) food at the one restaurant we were able to use because of the wedding was excellent, but very expensive with wine.
Usual gripe in nearly all my hotel reviews: paying for internet access; how come hotels charge us for this essentially fixed-cost item? Answer: because they can. Why don't they charge extra for running water and lighting? One day this will seem as unacceptable as smoking on planes. It was wireless everywhere, and worked OK, but was expensive, and why am I paying for it anyway?
