The Best Room I've Stayed In Feb 22, 2012
I keep looking at options of staying on my business trips to Mumbai & on one such occasion I got a good deal on The Westin Mumbai Garden City hotel in Goregaon (East ) .. a suburb of Mumbai.
The location of the hotel is on the main expressway about 30 minutes from the airport . Its quite a distance from downtown Mumbai but close to the sub-urbs where a lot of businesses now have shifted . Being on the expressway its quite easy to transverse Mumbai by taxi right upto the end .
Its a 5* property so was expecting it to be a certain standard obviously . Most Westin properties do not have a very luxurious feel on the outside ( for some reason ) .. the lobby is large & airy and check in was quick and smooth.
Once I was ushered in to my room on the 10th floor ... I had a big smile on my face on my first look at the room . It was large ... much larger than most hotel rooms I've stayed in .. must be about 45 sq.mtrs I was told with a large glass window with a view of the city below & a lush green view at that !! ( Let me tell you this is very very rare in Mumbai !!! ) .
A large King Sized Bed with concealed lighting at the head side , a desk with a chair to work , a 46" LCD screen with a concealed panel to connect your laptop , internet , wifi etc. A DVD player in the room to watch a movie of your choice if you were carrying one or ask the reception to give one our of their collection . The beds are really really comfortable .. a huge 18 inches spring mattress with real soft pillows ... it was heaven !!!
Now the best part ... there was this huge partition between the room and the bathroom which would slide away to open up the bathroom to the room . A strategically placed hot tub would face towards the LCD & the room , a large closet on one of the walls , a pretty lit up mirror with a washbasin and separate cubicles with glass doors for the shower & toilet . And this bathroom was LARGE & LUXURIOUS !!!
So my first decision was not to venture out in the evening and spend time on my own in my room in the hot tub sipping a bottle of wine .. & that is exactly what I did !!! & polished off the whole bottle :DD .
The overall decor of most Westins in India are kept the same , they had a nice 24 hour coffee shop , a Lounge bar , an Indian restaurant and a Poolside restaurant.
They have a gym & a Spa .. both of which I did not try .
Its a very nice hotel , very luxurious with the only drawback being that if you have to get to what is downtown area of Mumbai .. Marine drive , colaba its a good 1.5 hr to 2 hr drive by cab .
