The Palladium Hotel in Mumbai was the 2014 runner-up in Conde Nast’s “Favorite New Leisure Hotel in India” category. The luxury property is being rebranded after a complete refurbishment to the St. Regis Mumbai which will be the first St. Regis property in all of India.
The Palladium hotel gets consistently good reviews on TripAdvisor, and was previously a Shangri-La property.
The hotel is located in the upscale area of Lower Parel, which is about 30 minutes away from Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport. A bonus is that the Palladium mall is attached to the hotel.
The Palladium hotel currently has 390 guest rooms including 27 suites. I’m pleased to note that when it becomes St. Regis Mumbai, the hotel will increase the number of suites to 60, with the total guest room count lowering to 386. The property is not loaded yet into Starwood’s website but here’s a photo from Palladium’s website of the current lowest guest room type, a Deluxe Room which starts at 485 square feet.
Here’s a pic from Palladium’s website of their lowest suite, an Executive Suite that starts at just under 1,000 square feet.
The current Presidential Suite offers a whopping 4,000 square feet which includes a wine cellar, 10 seat formal dining room and jacuzzi tub with views over the city.
It’ll be interesting to see what changes will be made to decor and room layout as the property becomes a St. Regis.
Taking a look at current room pricing, the lowest room type goes for around 10,000 INR (156 USD). A suite can be had for 265 USD including breakfast, wifi, transfers to and from the airport, cocktail hour and high tea.
The hotel’s infinity pool (pic at top taken as screenshot from Palladium’s website) looks stunning, and there will be a pool bar and fitness center. The property stands 38 stories high, and the St. Regis Mumbai will have an all-day dining restaurant, four specialty restaurants, three bars and a club lounge.
The property is already undergoing updates, and will become the St. Regis in the third quarter of 2015.
