Wonderful Stay at Taj Westend
We had a very enjoyable stay at Taj Westend. Right from smooth checkin to quick checkout and everything in between, it was 'yes sir' with a smile always. Very well trained and sensitised staff who are always ready to help. Thank you

Awesome stay at a lovely property managed by fantastic staff
I booked 2 rooms for a night on the ocassion of my dads 70th birthday. This is beautiful heritage property and it was a fantastic experience, more due to the service and care shown by the Hotel staff. Ms Yang who handled the guests relations offered us a room upgrade on the ocassion which was a lovely gesture. The room was decorated with balloon and flowers when we arrived and also ensured a cake was in place. She called in advance to understand the requirements and ensured it was met. She kept me updated on the requests made and also checked on the stay during and after. She has been great with guest relations. Mr Sunny from the restaurant called up to enquire about the dining requirement and ensured that required seats were booked for the dining. He along with Harshit also helped set up a venue for cake cutting in the lawn on 9th morning. Appreciate the gesture and effort made. My son has an unfortunate fall from the cycle and was injured. Duty Manager Junaid turned up personally to enquire and the Security lead (forgot his name) arranged for a cab and accompanied me to take him for a precautionary checkup at the nearby hospital. Really appreciate the support provided. If I was to nitpick, I can only point to a malfunctioning shower, which should have been quality checked before allocation of room to guests. I am sure that's a one off miss and it didn't overshadow our otherwise lovely stay. Taj is known for its wonderful hospitality and it was great to experience the same at the Taj West End facility. This is made possible by the wonderful staff you have and the genuine care they show for the comfort and welfare of the guests.

Excellent stay, the staff make this hotel!
My parents and I visited for a weekend break. As the title states, the staff are what make the difference at this hotel. In general, everyone was genuinely friendly, ever willing, proactive, warm, I could go on. Special shout outs to Junaid, Chef Abhijit, Madhu, Harshit, Venkatesh, all the front office and F&B staff... Some suggestions/observations from a fellow professional - your club lounge is not a lounge by any stretch of imagination. When a guest pays a premium for a club room the expectation level is automatically higher. Each time we walked into the lounge there was nobody there,, zero amenities, (no water, soft drinks, sodas, tea, coffee etc). We visited twice and were underwhelmed by the space itself which looks more like a “cards room” than a lounge. Although there were no staff when we walked in each time someone attended to us quite quickly. We ordered coffee and this was met with what appeared to be genuine surprise and a kind of reluctance. The coffee itself took at least 20 minutes on each occasion by which time we had lost interest. Room 1102, my mother’s name when we checked in was displayed on our key card holder as Mrs Margaret M.. Her name is Linda M. and this was never updated. The check in process itself was pleasant and professional. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and beverage at the hotel. The quality was outstanding as was the service. Pricing in general is reasonable for the quality on offer although INR 700 plus taxes for 2 scoops of ice cream is mind boggling.
