A home away from home
I stayed at Taj CT for 3 nights and it was fantastic. Everything was great including room, food (with lot of varity from international & Indian food), cleanliness, service etc. The staff was very hospitable and location of the hotel is also very center of the city. Whenever i am again in CT will stay in Taj only.
