1. Introduction

    Last time I came to Ahmedabad, I stayed at the Aloft. Although, I realized it was very far from the city and I would rather stay close to the middle of the action.

    So, this time I decided to stay at Four Points by Sheraton.  There are many hotels that are coming to Ahmedabad next year including ITC Narmada. I don’t understand why they are naming the hotel after river Narmada when river Sabarmati is more local.

    So I have a quick layover at the hotel followed by a small meeting later in the evening. I had to fly next day in the afternoon.

    Remember, Four Points by Sheraton is a limited luxury hotel and Gujarat is a dry state. Four points don’t offer evening lounge facility either in New Delhi or Ahmedabad.   

  2. Check-In

    I had a gut feeling that they would try to fiddle around with me so instead of introducing myself first, I asked if they have any suites available that day. Only when they confirmed the availability, I finally shared my name and reservation to get my desired upgrade.

    This method works for me when the hotels don’t know who I am. I always return to the hotels that keep me happy.

    The lobby was small, so I presumed that the hotel would be too.  The reception had two agents only so if ever there are multiple checks –ins, one would have to wait for a while.
    I was given room 701. The elevator was on the left.


  3. Room

    The suite opened into a decent sized drawing room that had a beige couch and an ottoman placed near the first seat.

    In the center of the drawing room, there was a wooden round table with welcome amenities like orange juice, cookies, and chocolates placed on it.  There was card placed with it that welcomed me to the hotel.

    Opposite to the couch was a medium sized TV attached to a wooden panel and on the right corner of the room, there was a dining table with two lounge chairs placed next to it.

    At the end of the drawing room, there was a window with no view outside.

    Overall, the drawing room felt like a large hall where I can easily have my meetings.  The couch was very comfortable too.

    There is study table on the left of the TV. Study table felt old-school wooden desk. There was glass placed on the study table. The chair was the rolling chair. It was very ergonomic.

    There was a small hallway to the bedroom. On the left was a washroom and to the straight was a door separating the bedroom.

    The bedroom was huge and very spacious.

    There was a single seat swinging lounge seat with an ottoman in front of it. The carpet around the lounge seat was a contrast to the wooden finish of the rest of the room.

    On the left side was a nice comfortable bed. The mattress was average and comfortable. The switchboard next to the bed was alright. There was no master light for the room and that created some problems. I always hate searching for switches in the room.  

    There was a transparent glass partition between the bed and the washroom but I could not be sure of the advantage of this feature.

    The size of the tv across the room was too small and it’s angle and distance from the bed not very comfortable.  


  4. Washroom

    The washroom was average sized with a shower cabin. It had a rainforest shower and the water temperature and pressure was just fine.

    There was a closet on the right

    On the right there was single sink and the entire place felt a little tight because of the shower cabin attached to it.

    The toilet had a bidet spray connected to it.  

  5. Toiletries

    The toiletries were by Lemon Fresh. The smell was average but I still appreciate that they were proper toiletries and not dispensers.

  6. Fitness Center

    The Fitness center was a quite small room with not much equipment for anything except cardio. They were from Lifeline and were tv connected for a decent workout.  

  7. Food and Beverage

    Breakfast was on the first floor. The buffet was serviceable and the spread was average. There were no allergens labeled on the food.

    You can see the spread here. There were not many local options either. I found the taste of the food very average.  

  8. Service

    I didn’t have much time to interact with the staff. Whatever service I received, it was usually prompt and the staff was very supportive. From what I have heard, the Platinum breakfast is not good at all. However, if you request the manager, they do add buffet for you.  The service is good and you don’t have to wait forever for anything.  

  9. Bottomline

    The price and location of the hotel for me were the highlight of the stay. I was literally in middle of the main Ahmedabad and everything was only 2 to 5 mins away that made it remarkable for me. Even though there was an Uber/Ola Strike at the airport, I could get out of the airport and hire one.  The prime location makes this hotel one that I would recommend to people.

    I am definitely staying here when I visit Ahmedabad next.
