This is a gracious hotel, at the top rung of the Sheraton group. We booked a package involving a deluxe room in the tower, with breakfast, evening cocktails, butler service and an up-market check-in facility. Our Room, number 2518, was located in the old and elegant part of the hotel. The room was very comfortable and quiet with tasteful furnishings. The bed was superb with quality linen and pillows. Surprisingly, however, the carpet was somewhat tracked and worn – quite out of character with the rest of the room. This aside, we enjoying coming back to our room each afternoon after visiting the sites of Bangalore.
To organise our daily excursions around Bangalore, we walked out to the front of the hotel and negotiated a fixed price with one of the taxi drivers. They seemed to have organised themselves as a group and had a spokesman with good English available to negotiate the details. It seemed they all charged the same price. That said, the cars were modern, air conditioned and affordable, and the drivers highly presentable. They were excellent drivers, familiar with Bangalore’s tourist and shopping spots.
We ate dinner in the hotel’s south Indian restaurant, Dakshin, on two occasions. The staff went out of their way to introduce us to south Indian food and eating customs and it was a lot of fun. It’s definitely worth a visit, particularly if you can organise dinner during one of the classical Indian music presentations.
One night after dinner we arrived back in our room to find the hand-washing which I had hung in the bathroom to dry, had been pressed and folded, and neatly presented on our bed beside the chocolates. Great service indeed.
Another memorable feature of our stay included drinks in the Library each evening. The room is beautiful (refer photo) and was uncrowded when we stopped by.
