Jaipur recently saw launch of a new hotel – Crowne Plaza, Tonk Road, Jaipur. The latest entrant in the upscale luxury hotel segment is part of the IHG global portfolio. The Crowne Plaza® Hotels & Resorts brand is a dynamic upscale hotel brand located around the world in major urban centers, gateway cities and resort destinations. It is the fourth largest upscale full-service hotel brand in the world, and the latest member, this Jaipur establishment is poised to grow rapidly.
We visited the hotel recently and felt refreshed and very well looked after by a young and enthusiastic management team. Other staff teams of the hotel were equally well prepared and always attentive and catering to every needs of the guest.
Our entire team enjoyed every moment of our stay here and feasted on some amazing food served at Sirocco, the all-day dining restaurant at the hotel. The buffet spreads at the restaurant during the breakfast and meal times were gigantic and the dessert counter overflowing with mouth-luscious Indian and continental entrees.
We had 5 full meals at the restaurant and every time we were served a different cuisine. The Rajasthani menu needs a special mention here and a separate review has already been posted on my blogs (https://exatraveller.wordpress.com/2015/10/30/rajasthani-culinary-experience-at-crowne-plaza-tonk-road-jaipur/). Executive Chef Mr.Vikash was always there with us, taking personal interest to make us feel special and his culinary skills spoke thru the food that we had. Director F&B Mr. Chandan deserves a special mention here; he also was present every time taking notes of the feedback of the guests.
The swimming pool with an infinity touch was superb and I personally had a great time swimming in the pool and relaxing in the pool area. Swimming in the chilling waters of the pool on the full moon night made for a perfect picture frame and I was there to capture it.
Though I am not a fitness freak, but still the looks of the latest fitness equipment at the Fitness center pulled me in and I tried my hands at the cycling stations and the Tread mills. Lifting weights would have had been a bit too much for me.
The ever smiling staff at the restaurant and the lounge was always there whenever I needed cup of my favourite coffee, the Americano. In fact after two repeat orders, I don’t even remember asking for the coffee again, it used to be served the moment I used to make myself comfortable in one of the cozy sofas.
