Hey everybody, hope all's going good! The past 2 months have been crazy, not just because I've been travelling, but also because I'm kinda working on developing something new. And, for the same reason, Delhi/NCR have become my on-the-go stops. I have been frequently visiting the capital for work and during one of my recent visits, I stayed at HYATT PLACE in GURGAON (now Gurugram), only to experience one of the most uncomplicated stays beyond my own house! Strategically located in Udyog Vihar, the heart of Gurgaon, offering the ideal location for multi-tasking international travellers, the hotel is minutes' drive from the New Delhi International Airport via the Express Highway (NH8) and close to major business and shopping hubs like DLF Cyber City, M G Road, HUDA City Centre & Cyber Hub.

Mostly when I'm in Delhi or around, I choose to stay at my own house with my relatives in the South, but this time it was a thoughtful decision to keep away from the family and enjoy hospitality in a smartly designed, hi-tech and modern environment. I took an Uber from the Delhi Airport and reached the hotel in 25 minutes to be precise, which with the Delhi traffic is very rare, so this ride was quick and hassle-free! Upon reaching the hotel, the bellman welcomed me and very sweetly carried my luggage in the gallery while I cleared the security and reached the reception to be greeted by equally welcoming gallery host! It was a convenient check-in with my reservation and I asked the gallery staff to send my luggage in my room until I explore the hotel a bit!
Its no secret that I'm fascinated by colors. I like warm and stylish surroundings that appear sophisticated and edgy with a hint of creativity. At Hyatt Place Gurgaon/Udyog Vihar, aesthetic combines modern sophistication and casual comfort with a sense of style. They create an easygoing atmosphere for all their guests. Plenty of purposeful spaces, designed for constant relevance, each space functions to answer the evolving needs of both business and leisure guests with flexible options, whether it’s day or night, weekday or weekend.
Complemented by the luxe touch in the gallery with prepossessing decor and furniture is something you cannot look away from! Be it the white couches with an outdoor view of the large scale parking area, or the running lobby with bright red sofa chairs for casual coffee meetings, the hotel also offers a cocktail bar and a cafeteria to take a moment to kick back and relax! What actually caught my eye was the outdoor seating near the gallery while walking towards the restaurant. Nicely done with climbers and shed, the morning walkers and coffee sippers have a very tasteful spot to chill!

By now, you must have already guessed that I wasn't tired at all because of course the flight was just 55 minutes so no jet lag! Though boarding and landing took time but I was still packed with energy, which eventually took me to the gym area at the hotel which is equipped with multi-functional sport machines with LCD screens to witness progress of workout. I loved how calling the interiors were with perfect lighting to keep you going! With that, the hotel also offers a huge swimming pool at the first floor to re-energize yourself to kick start a busy day. The city view from the pool area is breathtaking and the vibrantly done furniture around the pool is beguiling as well!
I finally came to my room after checking out most of the corners of the hotel which looked lavish enough! Escorted by the gallery staff, I entered my room situated on the third floor only to realise that its one of those 176 guestrooms that Hyatt Place offers with a mix of contemporary and stylish furnishings including different plush bed options! I went in for a double occupancy room, consisting of twin beds, each having a side table and a lamp with comfortable space to walk around too! The hotel is about style and convenience. Their identity of chic simplicity seems best conveyed through their rooms that are spacious with a contemporary design that is not too stuffy. A cozy-corner sofa sleeper with a centre table, a work desk with in-built plugs for laptop & phone chargers and tea/coffee maker, alongside a swiveling 42" flat-panel HDTV with a fridge cabin and multiple drawers, attached to a wardrobe with an iron, iron pad & security locker inside, and free Wi-Fi made my room of complete convenience! PS : The textured window glass (with curtain pully) with that mesmerizing city view though!
The bathroom being of my utmost concern, looked stylish and tastefully done! A big wash basin with a wide length wall mirror above the toilet seat made it look comfortable and chic. Equipped with modern fittings, the bath area appeared easy and natural. Hyatt is best known for their thoughtfulness about the needs of their guests and it could be seen very well with the various number of towels and luxury hair care and skin care amenities present in the bathroom! With that, they even have the option to call at any hour and order any other bath amenities you'd want from their odd-items shop!

Hyatt Place has been created for multi-blenders with 24x7 lifestyles. Being a night owl, I have a habit of digging into food at random hours! Thank god for the 24x7 in-room dining option available at this hotel due to which I could work stuffing myself with food of my liking. I had ordered Veg Sandwich with Fries, Alfredo Pasta, Tiramisu Pudding and Diet Coke. The order arrived in 20 minutes and I couldn't be happier. It seemed like one of those satisfactory moments you feel after a hectic day. Well, the food shop at the hotel offers multiple choices in snacks (like chips, sandwiches, hot/cold beverages, etc.) throughout the day to grab-n-go!

Talking of food, it finally brings me to share with you my experience at the Gallery Restaurant at Hyatt Place Gurgaon with an inviting ambience! The menu offers a plentiful & sumptuous variety of local and regional specialities to choose from based on their individual preferences. Guests looking for a lighter bite can enjoy a selection of freshly prepared salads, sandwiches and much more at the cafe, while the Gallery Kitchen serves hot breakfast every morning. With a wide variety of beverages to offer, you’ll never have to settle for anything less than a freshly made meal, cold or hot beverage, a selection of speciality beverages, or a delightful bite of your favourite dessert. The restaurant offers a buffet selection and also has an a-la carte menu with Asian and western dishes and desserts available all day. Well, I opted for the buffet lunch which included the starters, main course and a wide selection of salads and desserts freshly prepared by the chefs who put their hearts to present you the tastiest food for the foodie in you! Having said that, I was smitten by the fact that the chefs at the show kitchen are always eager to please, so one shouldn't hesitate asking them to whip up a dish you have in mind!

In all honesty, Hyatt Place is one of the best upscale business hotels in Gurgaon (Gurugram), offering modern product design, smart features, relaxed service model, fresh aesthetic, and thoughtful service for the best guest experience. Spread over a wide area in the city centre, the hotel has a huge lawn for wedding parties, more than 150 guestrooms and international luxury recreational activity rooms, meeting and conference rooms, large scale parking lot, a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, etc. and a highly trained staff to cater their guests 24x7 for a comfortable and convenient stay. At Hyatt, they strive to see the world through the eyes of their guests, which helps them to respond to their evolving needs, allowing them to deliver refreshingly uncomplicated experiences that feel authentic, intuitive and modern. By leaving out unnecessary formalities, the Hyatt staff helps all their guests get on with their day through friendly, casual service. Which reminds me that while checking out, the Gallery Host warmly engaged with me one last time, enquiring if my stay was a pleasant one and offering a friendly farewell along with an invitation back for future stays! And yes, my stay at Hyatt Place Gurgaon was definitely worth it!
