Nestled in the heart of Bangalore’s tech hub, Courtyard by Marriott ORR brings luxury in hospitality and dining in this area. Being right next to our work place, we have often had our team lunches at MoMo Café. Or grabbed some drinks after work at the poolside restaurant – BG’s. A few weekends back we were invited for an experiential at the Courtyard by Marriott, ORR by Monica Khara. And we packed our bags for a quick getaway not far away from home!
Courtyard by Marriott ORR is nestled quite snugly between some of the busiest tech parks in the city. And this makes it a very convenient choice for business travelers. Despite being in the heart of the business district, the hotel is designed to give a completely relaxing experience. The staff is warm and helpful, very considerate and efficient. And the city center isn’t far and the area is quite well connected – for those who want to step out for shopping.
The property has various category of rooms – starting with Deluxe, Executive Deluxe and Courtyard Suite. The latter 2 categories have access to the executive lounge, while all the rooms are spacious, comfortable, have living/sitting area and come with high speed internet. We stayed at the gorgeous suite overlooking the swimming pool, and absolutely loved it. Spacious, comfortable and great view all the way. The hotel had thoughtfully arranged for a photo chocolate as a welcome present, along with a bottle of bubbly. So you know, the folks at Marriott sure knew how to pamper!
Courtyard by Marriott, ORR has 2 restaurants in the property – the aforementioned MoMo Café and the BG’s Poolside Bar and Grill. MoMo Café serves a range of menu options covering various cuisines – buffet as well as a la carte. There’s also a fresh bakes and sandwiches available at the Grab & Go section of the restaurant. BG’s is a welcome contrast, signature restaurant of the hotel serving specialty cocktails. This place would always be my recommendation post a long day at work. A fitness center and spa are available in the property as well. So, whether it is a work out on your mind or just a relax and rejuvenating massage, you’re taken care of.
We had a nice dinner at MoMo Cafe – enjoying their sumptuous buffet spread. The next morning, after a hearty breakfast we headed to the pool for some sun and swim. And that was absolutely splendid. Their Sunday Brunches at BG’s allows the use of pool, which is such a boon!
