This is a beautiful, historic hotel right near the Gateway to India. This hotel has hosted guests from John Lennon to Winston Churchill. The service here was amazing as was the food. The rooms are comfortable and very well appointed, with big soft towels and great beds. Would definitely come back!

Certainly Bombay's most famous hotel, and certainly one of its very best, this heritage landmark right beside the Gateway of India on the Colaba waterfront is THE place to experience top-notch comfort, character and service in a wonderfully historic building. Predictably expensive, it's played host to heads of state, actors and musicians for generations.Recommended for:Luxury Travelers

Lot has been said about the architecture, location, service, heritage about this hotel. So not gonna bore you further but share my experience in their not-so-oft written about Lounge & even more exclusive Spa.
Nothing is quite as regal and nostalgic as a lazy mid-afternoon or even a high tea at the Sea Lounge http://goo.gl/dcrkt. This place is steeped in history, offers an exquisite view over the Gateway of India & indeed has the most delectable finger-food, petit fours,etc.
Get a table by the panoramic window. Do ask for the mushroom vol-en-vents (they don't feature on the menu anymore - but they indulge their old patrons). Enjoy the piano music. Watch out for that tempting dessert cart as it makes the rounds. And to capture your moment - a photographer is always making the rounds ready to capture your memory!
I have experienced and enjoyed the exclusive and sophisticated experiences the Taj in-house restaurants unfolds for their pampered guests. Highly recommended. Take a pick: http://goo.gl/Q8Hcn
Should you be visiting around Diwali (like a Hindu Christmas! ) - look for their surprise knick-knacks. Ask for their exclusive gift hampers and don't forget their inhouse signature wines!
Spa: Jiva - any Taj property which houses their signature spa line "Jiva" just reserve yourself for the pampering. Private, quite, fragrant environment. Treatment rooms placed at a distance, soft rustling sounds and barely any conversations or imposed music. Truly an oasis in an otherwise noisy and chaotic city. Must try experience. Go in for their light cleansing massage for activating the lymphatic system. Watch your skin glow for days later and how energized you feel. It is a 2 hour pampering.When in Chennai I had tried their couple Massage - but I don't know if the Mumbai hotel's 6 treatment rooms houses this special. They do have a gym & beauty salon as part of the spa.
And should you be headed to India in the hot summer months - look forward to be rewarded by the limited-time-only MANGO menu! mango menu in INdia is like nothing you've seen elsewhere, It is considered a "royal" fruit - "king of kings" blah blah. Just have a blast.Recommended for:History Buffs

Arguably the best hotel in the world. We stayed in the Tower where the rooms are not as nice as the palace (the rooms are good but not amazing), but the real stand out at this hotel is the service. The staff was absolutely phenomenal taking care of every whim and need and always with a kind smile. The breakfast is also one of the best buffet breakfasts I've ever had!

I usually loathe hotels that are way too fancy, but I came here for high tea because it was raining since I was in India during monsoon season. I loved it, the place is beautiful and the service is great. There was even an interview with an actor at the table next to us. And the food was ridiculously fun to eat - delicately flavored chai, small appetizers (samosas, idli), cute pastries, and adorable tea sandwiches.
Excellent!1399 reviews across the web.
