The hotel has turned itself into a completely personalized experience for Tendulkar and his team. Almost all the amenities such as pillow cases, ornate framed collages and special turndowns have been customized for the Master Blaster. On display in the lobby is a cricket-themed flower arrangement. A plaque near the hotel tower mentions the year it was constructed, which coincides with the cricketing hero’s year of birth, 1973.
