Back in March 2014 when we were a couple, Daraius and I flew to India as part of an around-the-world trip for my parents.  During our journey, we visited India, the Maldives, and Hong Kong.

We took a 4-day trip to Jaipur, a city in the Northern part of India called Rajasthan.  I really like Rajasthan for its historic palaces, extraordinary forts, and excellent shopping.  And we even took a picturesque elephant ride!  It’s different than anywhere else I’ve traveled, and that’s why I liked it so much!

We Had a Terrific 3-Night Stay at the ITC Rajputana Hotel in Jaipur!

This series of posts will cover the logistics of getting to Jaipur, the hotel we stayed in, the activities we did, and restaurants we visited.

ITC Rajputana Hotel Room (A Starwood Luxury Collection Hotel)

The ITC Rajputana lobby was beautiful, and I had high expectations for the rooms.  We booked the room for 4,000 Starwood points per night (but the price has since gone down to 3,000 Starwood points per night) for a standard room.

The hotel room was also gorgeous and had a modern feel.  I would have preferred it to have a slightly more local Indian look, but it was still nice.

We booked a standard king room, which included 1 room as a combination living room / office / bedroom, and a separate bathroom.

The Rooms Have a Clean and Modern Feel

There was a king size bed with beautiful wallpaper behind it.  I really loved the hanging lights.

The Lamps Reminded Me of the Hanging Lanterns in the Lobby

Across the room was a TV and a desk.

The Desk Area Wasn’t Huge, but There Was Enough Space to Get Some Work Done

The desk had a comfortable chair and a pillow.

But Who Wants to Do Work When You’re on Vacation in Jaipur?

The furniture was elegant and modern.

I Liked the Glass-Topped Table and Subdued Lighting

The dresser across from the bed had a minibar and a luggage stand built into one.

The Room Furnishings Were Compact, but We Had Everything We Needed

There was a flat screen TV.

We received slippers in a tray underneath the luggage rack.

I Love the Little Details, Like Comfy Slippers to Keep Your Feet Warm!

I really liked the chaise lounge in the room.

The Perfect Spot to Stretch Out After a Long Day of Travel

There was a closet that had doors facing the bedroom area and the bathroom.

The Closet Was Small but Well Organized

It was not a walk-in closet, but we could store a lot of our stuff.

More Than Enough Floor Space for Our Luggage

In the hallway to the bathroom, there was a tea and coffee station.  I liked the decorative flowers on the tea cups.

Real Teacups Instead of Styrofoam!  Much More Civilized

There was also some framed Indian silver jewelry.  Rajasthan is known for their silver jewelry production.

We Might Have to Go Jewelry Shopping Later!

The bathroom was big enough for the both of us.

The Bathroom Was Clean and Modern, With Good Lighting

There was a shower, bathtub, and sink.

The Tub Was Nice and Deep – Great for a Long Soak!

There was a window above the bathtub that opened out into the living area.  There were plenty of towels.

I Don’t Like When Hotels Skimp on Towels, so I Was Happy to See Lots!

A rack was on the bathtub too.

Also in the bathroom were 2 terry cloth robes.

The sink had a granite counter-top.

Everything Was Impeccably Clean and Tidy

There were 2 drawers.  One had lots of amenities.

No Worries If You Forget Anything – It’s All Here!

The other drawer had a blow dryer.

A Full Size Blowdryer (Much Better Than the Weak Mini Dryers in Some Hotels!)

There was a large walk-in shower.

Like to Sing in the Shower?  It Almost Looks Like They’ve Provided a Microphone!

There was a separate toilet area.

I’ve Always Been Puzzled About Hotels That Have a Phone Right Next to the Toilet!

You Can Do It, Too!

We spent 12,000 Starwood points (4,000 Starwood points per night) for our 3-night stay at the ITC Rajputana.

Since our trip, the hotel has dropped to a category 1 Starwood hotel.  So award nights now cost just 3,000 Starwood points (2,000 Starwood points on weekends).

We used Starwood points earned from our Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express and Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card from American Express cards.

Here’s our series on how to earn and use Starwood points!

Bottom Line

Daraius and I used 4,000 Starwood points per night at the ITC Rajputana.  Since our trip, the hotel has gone down a category and now costs only 3,000 Starwood points per night (2,000 points on weekends).

Our hotel room was clean and comfortable, and I especially liked the unique Indian touches!  I would stay at this hotel again.

Stay tuned for more of our adventures in Jaipur!

  1. Is this series NINE DAYS of reposts from 2014?

  2. @ cher- No, they are not reposts. They are new trip reports from a previous trip we took.

  3. quick question – the SPG points would have gotten you the standard room (executive standard).. the room you stayed in was Rajputana Royale (3 level upgrade).. how did you manage that..

    I have also booked an executive room for my stay in March, so wanted to know how did that work out..

  4. Hi,

    Quick question.. SPG points would have booked you into a standard room (executive standard).. the room pics you have is Rajputana Royale (3 level upgrade).. how did you manage that ??

    I have a stay coming up in March.. would love to know how you did it..

  5. @ Sameer- I will ask Daraius how he booked it and we will get back to you.

  6. @ Sameer- I checked with Daraius and we probably got an upgrade because we had Gold status.
