The Gateway Hotel is an amazing place to stay!!
Posted Feb 25, 2016 on Hotels
We were in Vadodara for a family wedding, and unfortunately the original hotel where we were supposed to stay was not of high quality. We looked for an alternative, and thankfully we were able to find The Gateway Hotel. This hotel was vastly superior to the other hotel in every aspect, from the room size (we reserved a Junior Suite and requested a rollaway bed as there were three in our family), to the hospitality of the hotel team. We were greeted warmly, and made very comfortable throughout our stay. The chef who made our breakfasts requests, Ravi, was absolutely a gem.
The hotel also provided, at a small fee, a car to take us to and pick us up from the wedding venue.
I would recommend making two printouts of the hotels.com confirmation of payment, as there was a bit of confusion upon checkout. Maybe the hotel hadn't received payment of funds from the online transaction, but I had the confirmation page with me which helped me on that matter.
The hotel is undergoing renovations in the lobby, but it in no way affects the overall feeling of warmth and hospitality that we felt at the hotel. Also, the renovations needed aren't obvious, meaning, the hotel in no way feels "dated".
We are definitely planning to stay in this hotel again in the future. Even though we have a place to stay in nearby Anand, we are more likely to book this hotel for future stays.
