First of all - if you have something to do in the city of Hyderabad or are in India for sightseeing: this is the totally wrong place! Due to the location in IT-City, approx. 30 - 45 minutes from city center this Hotel caters the IT professionals or guests who need to visit the industry on the outskirts of Hyderabad. For these people the location is just perfect since it allows bypassing the traffic jam inside the city.
I wouldn't call the Hotel a Luxury-Hotel as you expect it from WESTIN. It's more a modern 3* hotel. For example the Indian restaurant is located at basement level and doesn't have a window. The pool, due to the construction around, doesn't offer any privacy; the "Deli" offers very basic sandwiches (my chocolates even had parts of the plastic packaging of a chocolate bar inside).
The SPG-Platinum-Lounge at 25th floor is the highlight. It offers good views (well, lots of construction around) and very good services such as breakfast, pre-dinner snacks. The staff is very helpful.
The room (we got a corner room) was quite okay - but also not luxurious as other WESTIN Hotels. Even the hotel is only 1.5 years old some parts already look a bit worn out (sink...). And, due to the construction around it's not really quite (constructions go on during the night!).
The really weak point of the hotel is the miserable wireless internet connection. It's very slow and it constantly breaks down completely (even for some hours). Catering IT people from the IT companies around this is a real problem. We had IT staff at our room, at the Lounge - but they all gave up.
If the would sort out their internet problem this Hotel would be a very nice "aloft" or "4points" - but for sure not a WESTIN.
