Beautifully comfortable hotel. We had club access and were able to sit in one of the glass enclosed dining nooks and it was dreamy. Our room was comfortable and well equipped. Pool was great for laps. Note, they do not have a Sauna, we were told But that was ok as everything else perfect.

Loved the Taj!

We had a great stay at this hotel. We were upgraded to Executive Level and the room was amazing. Great decor and view and an amazing bathtub. We loved the lobby for cappuccinos in the morning, too!
