Go to the hotel which gives a home like a feel, comfort, and luxury to relax as well,.We recently visited Tirupati India and stayed at Hotel fortune select grand ridge. It’s an ITC group hotel and it is located at Shilparamam, Tiruchanoor Road in Tirupati. Fortune select is at a very convenient location and many local attractions are nearby from the hotel. It was recommended by one of the friends as she stayed in the hotel during her visit to the place.
So coming to the most wonderful tour – It was the most awaited trip to Tirupati as we were planning it for the last 3-4 years. But we couldn’t make it as kids were too young to travel. And Tirupati Balaji temple is a very crowded place as millions of visitors come here every year. It’s the most sacred place of pilgrimage in India. We planned the visit in December and then booked a fortune hotel for 3 days using their website, online. Here is a detailed review of the hotel.
We reached Tirupati in the morning by flight from Hyderabad. Then we took the cab to go to the hotel as it’s quite far from the airport. It’s a huge hotel with lush green outdoors, attractive reception. We received a very special and warm welcome from the staff of the hotel. After entering we got that perfect feel of visiting Tirupati, as it’s decorated with artistic lamps and beautiful interiors. We completed check-in formalities and headed towards our room.
We booked 2 rooms in the hotel for our family. The rooms were very spacious with big windows. There’s a local park located next to the hotel. Our room was facing the park and kids started insisting for visit to the park. The room was equipped with all necessary things like toiletries, Dental Kit, Slippers, weighing Measure, Electronic Safe, Tea/Coffee Maker, Hair Dryer. This is the hotel room.

Because of the time constraint, we couldn’t go to the gym and swimming pool in the hotel. But we relished on their buffet breakfast. The hotel provides a complimentary breakfast in the morning. The breakfast was having a wide variety of dishes in it. They serve south Indian delicacies, cereals, bakery items, fruits, fresh juices beverages like coffee, tea. All the dishes were too delicious and freshly cooked. The piping hot sambhar was so delectable that I took it repeatedly. Then we gorged on hot dosa, medu vada, and idli. Kids ate pancakes and cupcakes. We ordered vegetarian meals for the dinner. I must admit the food is absolutely tasty and just like home cooked at fortune. Their service is very prompt too.
