The doors to the Hilton are manned by friendly smiles, the front desk and staff welcoming on check in. Within 10 minutes we were checked in, and given the card to our room. 5th floor, away from the main road as I had asked (advise from other reviews). The decor of the room was nice, with the saree border framework a certain charm. Loved the large open window separating the bathroom and room (don't worry, the toilet and shower cubicle is covered with black tint and the window has an electric blind, if your rooming with a colleague).
If your here on a business trip for a limited amount of days and have no plans on going shopping or to the city center this is ideal. But if your here for shopping then at best it takes you 1 hour to reach Spencer or Express Avenue Mall or even T Nagar shopping which is annoying and tiring!
Finally, room service can be best put as inconsistent! Not that the food was not good, it was excellent but inconsistent! I ordered Ice Lemon tea 3 times, and each time the tea tasted different, and was accompanied and garnished differently (once they even gave extra lime juice/sugar syrup.. which was great!). Also feel room service menu should have more South Indian lunch fares!
If you need anything sorted talk to Ashkar in the front desk, he is friendly and helpful.
Overall the Hilton is a great place to stay, close to the airport, excellent and friendly service.
