Hotel Review: The Westin Pune Koregaon Park, Pune in India
I was invited to stay at The Westin Pune Koregaon Park which is located at the best locality in Pune and I had a super time while I was there! My terrace suite was spacious and stylishly designed; the best part was the expansive terrace where I would sit for hours in solitude and just do nothing. This is a great place to have a steaming cup of tea and gaze at the gorgeous sight of the sun rising up or setting down in the evenings.
