It has been a very nice and a pleasant experience. The property is good and well maintained. Our suite facing the promenade was spacious, neat and clean. The staff is well behaved and polite. The staff members were less during our visit but Manish from the front desk was helpful in picking up our baggage and putting it in the boot of the car during check out though it was not his job. I appreciate his gesture. The services provided by all the staff members was good.

The food available was only continental which was good. I would suggest them to add some indian mughlai food too.

Overall, I am happy by their hospitality.

Excellent stay at waterfront shaw. Hassle free check-in and great hospitality by hotel staff. Good American Diner in-house restaurant. Clean rooms. Recommend to go for promenade facing rooms. The breakfast could have been a little better.

Special mention for Mr Manish who was the duty manager during our stay. The room category via online booking was messed up. We were charged extra for a lower category room. However, upon request, Mr Manish understood the gravity of the situation and adhered to our request in the best possible manner. It's a gesture that makes relationships and as travellers, we do recommendations based on such acts. Overall, a nice cosy place to stay for a weekend.
