We're currently staying at this hotel, and it's my second time (5th trip to Mumbai in total). It's new, it's incredibly clean, it's on great grounds. We have had absolutely no problems with airport transfers or getting around (mainly to Hiranandani Gardens shopping area, with KFC and two supermarkets) via auto rickshaw for a mere 30 rupees per trip. Breakfast is great, bar staff are fantastic. Considering how expensive accommodation in Mumbai is, this place is a STEAL. If you need to visit south Mumbai (around Colaba), I'd stay in that vicinity as staying anywhere else can result in you being stuck in traffic for 2 hours just to get there.
Room - I stayed in a DLX room that was very spacious and tastefully decorated. Great room amenities - large TV with lots of international channels, heaps of pillows, desk with stationary box, fresh fruit, rain shower AND bath, window connecting bathroom and sleeping area so you can watch TV from the tub, a great selection of shampoo, lotion, bath salt and other complimentary toiletries. You should definitely spend the extra money and book a "lake-view" room as the night skyline of Powai is gorgeous and "hill-view" rooms overlooks the slums.
Service - Incredibly polite and helpful staff, they even recognized me after just a day offering special service whenever possible. Whether at breakfast, at the pool-side or when calling for the concierge, everyone was just wonderful. Extra Tip: The room-service is amazing. They will take a rolling table into your room and serve all their in-house restaurant food right at the foot of your bed!
Hotel Amenities: This hotel has it all. Spa, Beauty Salon, Gym overlooking the lake, big outdoor Pool with Bar, lots of Restaurants (Chinese/ Italian/ Indian/ and more), popular night-Lounge, Convention Center and even a Limousine Service! Everything is very nicely maintained and operated. The Spa offers a lot of nice treatments but could use some rules regarding "quiet surroundings".

I stay in hotels 3 nights a week in the US so that is my baseline of comparison. The Beatle was generally OK in every category, but nothing really stands out as really good or bad. The location is excellent in one of the nicest neighborhoods in Mumbai. The breakfast was also really good for a hotel in its price range. The only thing I really disliked is having the toilet and shower in the same stall. Nothing like getting your feet wet to use the toilet to start the morning! Overall, decent value for the price.
