I chose this hotel solely based on location. It was only about 10 minutes away from my company.
The hotel was generous enough to pick me up from the airport free of charge. But the driver they sent asked me for a tip 5 or 6 times during the ride to the hotel. Actually that's pretty much all he talked about and wasn't very pleasant about it either. I was surprise he didn't pull into a dark alley and shake me down for some dough.
It took these guys 4 days to get some internet WiFi cards. Every day I heard the same story... "oh... tomorrow for sure! I'll go pick it up personally" and the same weak apology, "sorry, we don't have any yet." Took them 2 days to get me a hair dryer. After a week they called me down and insisted that I pay 1/2 my stay in advance and I should pay cash. Completely ridiculous... I finally cleared this up with the manager.
I went to Dehli over the weekend and requested airport pickup. I confirmed with the hotel reception 3 time before I left. They never wrote anything down. I even asked them if they need to write anything down. The response was "no problem sir, I'll take care of it." They didn't show up... surprised?
This was the most awful experience I had at any hotel by far. They can't pay me enough to come back....
If you must stay in the Whitefield area I recommend:
The Mark Boulevard
Both have nice rooms and pleasant staff.
