There's more individuality to this chain hotel than you might expect, with its blend of traditionally opulent and starkly modern; functional bare brick meets plush velvet. The overall impression is one of classic luxury with added convenience.
It's tucked away within acres of manicured garden, and the Taj Mahal is within easy reach. Their sustainability credentials are pretty impressive for a hotel of this style, and if you fancy pushing the boat out, the Presidential suites are a bit special.
