“Impressed... Yet Again!!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Though we all expect good and efficient service in all the 5-Star properties, but the warm and courteous service that you get in ITC, always leaves you happy..

On my recent trip to the city of joy, i was confused between The Park n ITC Sonar.. though everyone recommended The Park, I decided to choose ITC Sonar. I am kind of getting accustomed to their hospitality.

The property is beautiful.. With so many water bodies around the place, it gives out a very calmiing and peaceful ambience.. just perfect after a hectic day at work..

They had a special offer going on for "free drinks" (yup, thats right!!) on the house during what they call luxury hours 6pm to 8pm.. Though I reached the lounge late, the person on duty - Clinton extended the hours for me.. The cocktails that he mixed were just awesome.... All with great smile and courtesy...

They have wide variety of restaurants to offer - A Bar n Grill, Peshavari, a pan Asian cuisine, Dumpukht, Coffee shop, a different bar.. enough to spoil one for choice..

The buffet breakfast was good... I am a big fan of their multigrain dosa, but here it was not as good as Chef Rajan's in Mumbai.. :)

The only limitation is - the property is away from the city, so if you have plans to go back to the city for a hip n happening eve, this is not your place.. but if you prefer solitude and serenity (like me), this definitely is ur place to be..

All hotels go through periods of ups and downs, I would think. But most of my stays at ITC Sonar over the 15-odd years of its existence have been exceptional. This trip was no exception.

From the time one enters the property and sets sight on its beautiful aquascape with myriad red-orange frolicking fish in the lotus-lavished waters, it is hard not to fall in love with the place.

The rooms are luxurious regardless of the category - though I would recommend the ITC One option if it fits within your budget.

The restaurants are all top-notch. The breakfast spread is among the best in town, possibly among the best across all 5-stars in India (I say "possibly" because there are a few I have not stayed at).

Service is exceptional in both promptness and courtesy.

And, to cap it all, the hotel has a low resource footprint - whether in emissions or water usage.

There is only one problem. My in-laws live in the same town, so I rarely find an opportunity to spend some time in this oasis of peace and perfection.

stayed here for a business meeting. The staff was very helpful. The rooms are spacious. Good interiors. The toilets were clean. The breakfast was excellent. The only two problems were the location.(though not in the center of the city ,is a short drive from the airport.)the other proplem was that the room key cards would not always work smoothly( that is the reason for the average room rating)

Friendly people with very good service.
Rooms are well maintained, choice of sleeping pillows is good.
Good food options at various restaurants - Pan Asian to Peshawari (North-east frontier)food.
Proximity to Science city and airport is good.

Room Tip: Select rooms on new wing. They are nicer and closer to Gym /Spa.

I found ITC Sonar to epitomise Peace & Quiet. The Property is huge and one can always expect peace & soltitude, however busy the Hotel may be. The Things which stand out are
- Luxurious Rooms which epitomise what you want from a Hotel Room. The Room will deliver as per that if not exceed expectations
- Wide variety of Restaurants one can easily spend a week before repeating a menu
- Professional staff, well groomed and eager to help
Overall a not to miss experience while visiting Kolkata if you have the budget
