Elegant, great location
Elegant architecture, wonderful breakfast buffet, clean, and very good service. I also felt very safe, there were staff members everywhere checking in and making sure all my needs were met. The only downside is that to get to the pool / gym / steam room, you have to go through the gorgeous lobby that is usually filled with well dressed people there for some fancy event... so it's rather uncomfortable to walk through in a robe or cover-up... there should be some sort of keyed entrance straight from the rooms.

Comfortable and friendly
I enjoyed my stay. The hotel is comfortable and the rooms are good size. But the rooms need updating. The Navratna, Golden Dragon and Yumi restaurants serve good Indian, Chinese and Japanese food respectively. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
