HOTEL MARIGOLD: PERFECT
By fnbworld bureau head
What sweeter name for a 4 start hotel than The Marigold, a highly herbaceous plant in the sunflower family and offered as garland to the gods. The completely digital Marigold Hotel in Jaipur, where I stayed in October of 2016 in a suite on the fourth floor gave me a wonderful in many ways. As I checked in, I could easily spot the distinctly organized concierge and the flower decoration around the reception area.
As I entered my room, the pleasant whiff of freshness pervaded my suite. The room service was perfect and I got what I wanted instantaneously – chilled water and a bucket of ice, followed promptly by crispy spring rolls and hot black caffeine The fine courteous service by the staff made me forget my extreme road fatigue after a bus journey from New Delhi and further on to ‘Vastra 2016’ the yearly international textile exhibition.

The hotel is premium business friendly; one of the newest hotels, built in 2014, placed in the industrial area in Jaipur. There are 5 suites and 70 deluxe rooms. The hotel comes with a posh interior and the lavish buffet spread for breakfast comprising fresh fruits, Indian delicacies like the ubiquitous south Indian cuisine, sandwiches, and in the continental spread were pastas, lasagna, salads, sausages, cake and custard among other delicacies and desserts.
