Business Traveler (USA) - - COVER STORY -

This brand-new 300-room ho­tel is the In­dian flag­ship prop­erty of Sof­i­tel Lux­ury Ho­tels, and is lo­cated right in the heart of Mum­bai’s fi­nan­cial dis­trict. Sof­i­tel’s sig­na­ture touch of Art Nou­veau and French influences is rec­og­niz­able through­out the elab­o­rate in­te­rior de­sign, and is a real treat at such rea­son­able rates.

Fa­cil­i­ties: Tim­ber wood floors, in­no­va­tive dé­cor, free WiFi and satel­lite TV come in the rooms, demon­strat­ing the com­bi­na­tion of five-star lux­ury and prac­ti­cal­ity this brand brings to the ta­ble. In­dulge in Ayurvedic treat­ments at So Spa, take a dip in the out­door pool or spa bath, or re­ju­ve­nate your­self with a sauna or work­out at the So Fit center. One grand salon ball­room and eight cut­ting-edge meet­ing rooms make up the busi­ness in­ven­tory, and there is even an “in­spired meet­ings concierge” and event plan­ning team to help plan and ex­e­cute your busi­ness gath­er­ings.

F&B: Pondich­ery Café serves in­ter­na­tional cui­sine, Jyran – Tan­door Din­ing & Lounge cooks up re­gional fla­vors and this prop­erty’s bistro of­fer­ing is called Ar­ti­san. Tuskers – Veg­e­tar­ian Din­ing Bar, mean­while, does just what the name im­plies. L Oh Pool and Bar sup­plies pool­side re­fresh­ments, and Le Bar Dia­man­taire is a lobby bar with wine tower.

Price: Start­ing from $113 for a deluxe, ex­clud­ing taxes, when booked in ad­vance. No cancellations and break­fast not in­cluded.
