The hotel is located at a 10 min drive from the airport (though current construction activities might delay your trip quite a bit). The hotel arranges free transfers to/from the airport. Staff are friendly and competent; both check-in and check-out were a lot faster than at most other Indian hotels. The rooms are nice and clean and come with the usual amenities (TV, airconditioning, safe, alarm clock). There's a bar in the hotel which serves some tasty snacks as well as two restaurants. One of them serves surprisingly good pizzas, the other is more focused at local foods of high quality, but also a tad overpriced. I did not try the pool in the garden of the hotel. The rooms are well sound-proofed and you'll barely be able hear the airplanes flying over the hotel. There is no free WiFi (1 hr is free per stay). I hate this practice of charging the guests who already pay a good price for the room for an extremely minor service such as WiFi-use, but it is unfortunately very common, especially in business hotels. Breakfast is served close to the lobby and gives a decent choice of English, continental (strangely no orange juice?!) and Indian breakfast options. All in all a very decent hotel for a business stay.
