This sprawling hotel in the midst of the evolving business district of Whitefield – a busy and buzzing district on the outskirts of Bangalore – has 321 rooms, unintrusive service, great restaurants, and an amazing spa.

Telegraph Review

8 / 10

Whitefield used to be a distant suburb of Bangalore. Today, it is a vibrant district with great brewpubs, restaurants, jazz bars, hotels and malls, all drawn to the area by the software companies that are based here. Getting to the hotel from the airport or Central Bangalore takes two hours or so, depending on traffic. The hotel’s Benz or Audi cars make this commute a tad more comfortable.

Style & character
8 / 10

Clean lines, subtle furnishings, beige marble and dark wood furniture give this hotel a sense of spaciousness and scale. After the colour and chaos of India, the uncluttered spaces of the hotel are a respite. The dual-storey lobby has many cosy nooks for guests to congregate – and many do, discussing deals and teams over a cup of excellent coffee from MBC or Marriott. Public areas exude this sense of space, skipping ornate Indian decorations for unobtrusive, if forgettable artwork.
