I have been to a few business trips to Delhi/NCR and yes there are a lot of business hotels depending on your budget, but if you are looking for a hotel with a combination of luxury and sophistication, I think you will love what IHG has to offer. The last time I was here for a business trip I spent three nights at the Holiday Inn near Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI). This time I decided to stay at the Crowne Plaza in Sec 29 Gurgaon. Its situated perfectly. Not too close to the traffic hub MG Road but not too far from important places in Gurgaon. The HUDA Metro station is just 2-3 Km away. All the offices are within 15-30 Min drive and the IGI Airport during non-peak hours is just 20 minutes away.
I was stationed on the 6th floor and my room was perfect. Once you enter the washroom is on your left side and after a couple of steps you end up in this huge room with a comfortable king size bed. The room was enormous and so was the bathroom with some extra space for a bath tub. You have a separate shower enclosure and a pretty big hand wash area. I had a great view of the city from my room so I loved it! There’s also a small office area if you are one of those workaholics.
They have a 24 Hr bar (ConneXion) in the lobby area and two international themed restaurants (One was Brazilian but I don’t remember the other one). When I checked in it was late afternoon and I was hungry, so I decided to grab a beer and a quick bite at the bar. The Chicken Tikka Kathi roll was excellent and my Budweiser refreshing. Like I mentioned in my TripAdvisor review, the food was amazing throughout my stay and may be one of the best things about the hotel, however I do have some feedback that I have shared below:
- For a premium hotel like Crowne Plaza having a TV which doesn’t support a USB drive was a disappointment. It’s just easy and way better to watch a movie on your LED than your laptop. I definitely think they should upgrade their TV’s
- I thought that the breakfast lacked variety. Holiday Inn’s buffet spread was much better. I am not saying it was bad but it could improve.
Well, all I can say is my stay at Crowne Plaza was great. It’s perfectly located, it has great staff. Super-fast check in and check out process and the excellent food. I would definitely visit again.
