This less than a year old hotel is gorgeous-probably the best Radisson I've ever stayed in. There's a beautiful, new lobby and nice rooms with great bathrooms, hardwood floors, mini bar, flat screen TV, etc. Nice breakfast selection in the AM (both Indian and Western food). Ate at the bar a few nights-food was decent although food and drinks were a little pricey (took advantage of happy hour and food deals).
One the second floor (off the gym), there's a little sunporch (opposite the pool deck) we were able to take our computers, a bottle of beer (they let us drink from outside the hotel) and sit in the sun with our wi-fi (YES, free wi-fi!)
It seemed as though everywhere we turned, there was another smiling face from an employee willing to help (it was almost unnerving-I mean they were everywhere!!)
There is also a small amount of gift shops on site-the one with the books, rings, etc (toward the back) that the man runs will deal with really good prices (nice quality rings!)
The Taj is literally 3 or so blocks away-totally walking if you're up for being heckled the whole way there for rickshaw rides, to buy stuff, etc. Another hint-there's a little market area in the back of the Taj parking lot with a restaurant (beer bar) that sells huge Kingfishers for 4 USD (to bring back to hotel-if that, like me, is your thing)
There's also a McD's a few blocks in the opposite direction if you're into that kind of thing instead:)
