Sofitel, a luxurious hotel in Mumbai, is hogging the limelight after 10 Karnataka MLAs, belonging to the ruling Janata Dal-Secular and the Congress, checked in over the weekend after submitting their resignations to the assembly speaker there, throwing the southern state in political turmoil.
Take a look at the swanky digs.

Sofitel has been a favourite with both the BJP and the Congress for years. Its central location, close to the airport, makes it even more of a choice for politicos. Photograph courtesy: sofitel-mumbai-bkc.com
