Still known to locals as the Ambassador, the hotel is a listed heritage site built in 1945 by colonial architect Walter Sykes George in a fusion of British and art deco styles. While the early clientele included Indian royals, today the building and garden grounds have a faded glory. Guests come for the cosmopolitan, high-ceilinged rooms, refurbished by the luxury Taj chain; diligent, efficient service; terrific value for money; and convenient location next door to one of the city’s most upscale shopping malls.
