I've stayed at several 5-star hotels in India. This is supposedly rated a 5-star hotel. By Indian standards, yes, it's 5-star. By international standards, might be a slight stretch to call it 5-star.
The service was OUTSTANDING. The staff was very accommodating. For this reason alone I'd come back. The beds were very comfortable. Modern amenities like LCD TV, lounge chair and desk and chair were there. The food was good, but the menu was limited and sort of all over the place. Not quite continental and and not quite Indian. Not quite inexpensive, and not quite top of the line.
The decor of the hotel was nice. Had a modern decor. Very different than the Taj or Oberoi, which is more of a luxury, old world feel. Unfortunately, Indian craftsmen constructed the hotel and small little details were overlooked like leaky doors on the shower stalls.
This is a new hotel and taxi drivers don't know where it is. So getting to the hotel from whereever you are, can be troublesome unless you know how to communicate to taxi drivers. There isn't much around this hotel in terms of shopping or sightseeing. I'd say location and lack of noteriety is it's number 1 problem.
If you're looking for a nice hotel, that's comfortable for American travelers, and that will provide great service, but you can't quite afford the Taj or Oberoi, then this is the next best option.
