To experience the stately elegance, nothing would have clicked better than the Hotel Deep Palace Lucknow. The hotel had been converted from a heritage property which retained the architectural qualities but inculcated every conceivable modern amenity for the comfort of its guests. The ultimate result is this blend of superb hospitality and great property that is not only very aesthetically appealing but wonderful for staying while in the city. I had made a good choice. The hotel representative had picked us from the Chaudhury Charan Singh Airport and soon we were on our way to the hotel. The driver informed us that the drive to the hotel would be approximately 12 kilometers and I stuck my eyes outside to have a look at the city landscapes.
There is so much to experience within the hotel premise too. With the facilities of five Banquet Halls, it can be figured that the hotel remains pretty popular with the locals as well. Even for the travelling businessmen, it can be excellent venues for business meets and the like. And for food and drinks, there were many choices. So much and more but later, for I checked in smoothly and got to my room. We were ushered in our separate rooms, all thankfully side by side and I made a mental note to thank the receptionist for doing the needful and for her thoughtfulness. Things were proceeding as per plan and I was pleased with myself. Once, I had freshened up, I set myself to the task of exploring the hotel.
The restaurants had still not opened for dinner in the hotel but I could stroll in to admire their décor. It is indeed a foodie’s delight- the Sarovar Restaurant which served Chinese and Continental food was gearing up for the evening guests. I moved on to investigate the rest of the spaces and came across the Lounge which calls itself Sheesha. The Moroccan setting in the lounge is breathtaking and the ambience is truly very apt. Hotel Deep Palace Lucknow boasted of another open air restaurant named Ethnic Bar-Be-Que and a bar and another restaurant called Firdaus and Firdaus Royal Ethnic. With Dilkusha Kothi as the sightseeing destination for the next day, it seemed as the party had just begun for us.
