I had the fortune (??) of visiting the Leela Palace on Thursday. A bunch of us from office were selected to meet some prospective clients. After several changes in plan due to their flight delays we were told that we’d meet them at the hotel. To be frank, it turned out to be absolutely disappointing.
Having several meetings lined up and a packed schedule with their return flight in the evening; they were really running short of time and could meet us for only a short time. That apart I didn’t even get to explore the hotel 😦
Being accompanied by people some of whom apparently visited the Leela every month, getting them to join me on a guided tour of the Leela was a proposition which I didn’t even consider! And though there were the customary ‘please help yourselves to whatever you want‘ talks floating around, nobody actually got down to helping themselves or others with anything. And of course there were those who had meetings/ interviews/ presentations lined up in office and couldn’t wait to get back asap.
So, all in all, my maiden visit to the Leela was one of those occasions that fail to live up to their expectations! 😦
