    I would like to host a wedding reception and that too in a 5 star hotel. To save myself from searching around for the 5 star hotel in Chandigarh, I want to make it easy and simply ask on the forum for a 5 star hotel suggestion in Chandigarh.

    There are no such special requirements or so, as most all the 5 star hotels provide you with the services and facilities required, it's just finding the suitable hotel for a wedding reception.

    When mentioning the hotel please also provide details of the hotel location.
