I had a 2 night stay at the Jaypee Palace for a friend's wedding which was taking place in the hotel. And our first expression at entering was just like 'WOW!' I haven't come across such a magnificent royal looking hotel so far. It is huge with so many different kinds of ballrooms & conference rooms which makes it ideal to host a destination wedding there if one considers.
We were welcomed with great hospitality after our tiring road journey. The lobby was so nicely decorated & lit just in time for Christmas. One would instantly get into the festive cheery mood after seeing these festive decors!
There was a separate counter set up for the wedding guests. We were given super spacious rooms on the 2nd level, even though it seemed like a maze to get there. The balcony had a view towards the hotel grounds where one of the wedding functions was being held. Though, I'd have loved one with a view of Taj. The washroom was pretty big and decent too for 2 individuals to get ready just in time for the functions. There is an in house salon as well, however it goes overbooked during these events so better to book an appointment way in advance. I'm lucky to have got a last minute appointment, the staff did a great job and provided good service.
The breakfast on the other hand seemed quite limited with options given, most of the mains being Indian dishes rather than continentals. The lunch and dinner were pretty amazing and just in line with a wedding menu!
Few stuff that could have made our stay even better:
1) Wifi - I'm surprised such a big hotel has wifi problems. At first we weren't provided saying it's not complimentary, after a while we were allowed to connect however faced lots of connectivity issues.
2) I had to call the room service for everything literally- to get the slippers, bathrobes, iron etc. why weren't these placed already in the room in the first place? I mean these are the normal necessities and it gets pretty annoying to call for these small things.
Other than that, I feel the location & the hotel in general is just an amazing spot to have a wedding in (destination or not!).
