Mumbai hotel options

Any reviews on the Taj Mahal Palace Towers ?

Other options am considering are one of the ITC Hotels (now part of Marriott) or the Hilton Airport hotel

don't stay near the airport....the taj is great but will be the most expensive of the lot....the itc grand central is a good choice as well & so is the st. regis....i end up spending 20+ nights a year between these 2 properties....

the st. regis is great with plat recognition & is the better of the two properties....its attached to a couple of malls so there are lots of shopping & eating options in the area....the itc is a bit stingy with upgrades but they have a fantastic lounge with great views of the city....the itc also tends to be a little cheaper....

you can't go wrong with either but i would give a slight edge to the st. regis....

Kingboomer - it was my review of the Taj Mahal Palace that was linked in post #4 above. That was one of my better hotel experiences, and you can't beat the history and the location. That said it sounds as if you are more focused on properties that are part of a larger group (i.e., St. Regis). Good luck in your search

I am the outlier but I found the Taj Mahal Palace to be highly underwhelming. I am heading back to BOM in December and looking to stay elsewhere.

I ended up staying at the ITC Grand Central. Superb plat recognition. Got the presidential suite
