The citizens of any city will always make a case for why their city is superior and more liveable than another. Bangaloreans will always point out for instance that they have fabulous weather at all times of the year, great gastronomy and pub culture, is the IT capital of the country and add to that a growing number of quality hotels that you can choose from. The latest to join the list of star hotels in the city is the Fairfield Marriott, mid-scale hotel in Rajaji Nagar, which has been conceptualised to cater to the needs of the urban traveller. Since the idea here is to offer value for money, the hotel even at first glance or entry from the Golden Heights Mall does not strike you with awe. It’s nice, stylish, quite simple, without frills and meets the needs of the business traveller.
ROOMS AND DESIGN
Even as you walk around the hotel lobby and across floors what strikes you is the modern with-it design. It’s definitely uber-chic with dashes of colour that extend into the rooms. The hotel has 148 rooms in three categories (Fairfield King, Fairfield Twin and Fairfield Deluxe). The rooms are utterly comfortable and I ended up after the long flight from Delhi just falling on the bed and having a long, relaxing sleep. The rooms come with all amenities such as a 37-inch LCD TV, tea/coffee maker, iron and ironing board, electronic safe, high speed internet access and a mini-bar.
There is only one restaurant in the hotel—Kava. The all-day dining restaurant offers a sumptuous buffet at fantastically reasonable rates— *299 for breakfast, *399 for lunch and to end your day, a fulfilling dinner for *499. Apart from being reasonably priced there is amazing variety from south Indian to kebabs and the food is also par excellence. There is also a-la-carte option to choose from Indian and continental cuisine. If after a hard day of conferences and work you want a drink, stop by at the Kava Bar, which is located right next to the restaurant. A comfortable lounge area, the Kava Bar offers a choice of cocktails and various other drinks.
Comfortable and stylish, the hotel meets the needs of the business traveller.
While keeping it basic, the hotel offers most facilities a business traveller would want. There is a 24-hour fitness centre, a swimming pool under construction, enough parking space, three meeting rooms with state-of- the-art audio-visual facilities and boardrooms for focused meetings. There is also the Market at the lobby where you can buy snacks and beverages.
Undoubtedly the USP of the hotel is that it offers value for money to the business traveller. The location is also well chosen as the hotel is situated close to the industrial hubs of Peenya and Yeshwanthpura industrial areas.
