    Cute review. They weren’t slow on the beer, you just drank too quickly :-). So did you have to pay in full for the room or was this a discounted stay? How did you end up there?

    Scratchy towels are great unless you already had booked in for a full body scrub at their spa – which is wonderful! Anyhow, sun dried towels are more sanitary and save power, maybe the beer guys were hanging the towels out in-between brews!

    In India water used for washing etc is typically hard water and that along with sun drying contributes rougher towels. Though I doubt a Taj hotel is going to sun dry their laundry :).

    On my recent stay at St. Regis Princeville I thought the towels were slightly on the rougher side. I expected better towels from such a hotel that routinely charges around $400-500 a night.

    The windowed bathroom (shown in your picture) is very similar to a number of W Hotels in the US.

    The presumption is if you sleep with someone (in a room with one bed), you don’t mind them seeing you shower…and, for rooms with a view, you can enjoy the outward view while you shower.

    Seth, make sure you fill out the survey you get a few days after checking out! I mentioned everything I saw at a Taj property in CCU earler this year and the manager responded within a week explaining what they did to rectify things.
