Editorial review:

This domed hotel in the middle of Mumbai has a great view of the Gateway of India along with the harbor. The staff is marvelous, but the rooms in the tower wing need to be upgraded. The rooms in the attractive palace wing are more spacious and have Victorian themes. The marble baths are stunning and the restaurant is can't-miss.

                                The staff were exceptional! The service was great at all levels. Maids, waiters,pool staff, front desk, door men, security were all great and greeted every guest with a big smile. When checking in,the front desk asked us when our flight was leaving and without asking they gave us a 3:30 pm late checkout. They also upgraded us to the Palace from the Tower. The pool area is a very relaxing atmosphere for breakfast before heading out and for afternoon drinks after a day of touring.

                                Our room had a pretty consistent damp smell.

                                I loved everything about the Taj Mahal Palace - We had a palace room and the staff and service were above excellent and the comfort and luxury were outstanding. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough It added to our trip to Mumbai in many ways. This hotel is absolutely world class in every way.

                                There was nothing I did not like about the Taj Mahal. Everything was perfect.

                                Great superb hotel, nice staff, beautiful views (Sea view 5th floor)

                                Hotel is superb, but the minute you get out you will see extreme poverty, beggers on the pavments kids following you begging and asking for help. The hotel is very very expensive and it is really a waste of money, I will never stay there or even visit.
