As part of my recent trip to India, a visit to Mumbai was most definitely on the agenda. How could I not visit the home of Bollywood?
We had just come from Delhi, a city more akin to Washington DC with its government and diplomatic enclaves and most of the city life hidden behind walls or in hidden pockets. Being a city boy from New York, I felt immediately at home in Mumbai with its tall buildings and streets bustling with activity.
Of course we had debated on where we should stay in Mumbai, trying to pick the best location for taking in the flavor of the city. We found several gorgeous contenders including The Four Seasons Mumbai and another Taj hotel, the Vivanta by Taj - President . But in the end, we decided to go with the hotel that had the most history as well as being in an ideal location. That hotel was the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in the South Mumbai neighborhood of Colaba.
A truly memorable experience, we had a wonderful stay at the Taj Palace! Watch my video about our stay and find out what all of the fuss is about!
