I stayed at this hotel for four full days during the peak winter month of January 2017. And I think four days is a good period to observe and perceive the hotel from different angles.

Unfortunately, I cannot help because our private tour included the transfers from Bagdogra airport to the Mayfair. It was about a 2.5 hour trip. We went through a company called Explore India (accessible from North America and India). The traffic in Darjeeling is all SUV's who know the roads. While I would consider renting a vehicle in many places, I believe that this is one where I would leave it to the local experts (as you'll understand when you see the cliffs). Also, on the way down, we saw a traffic jam ahead (2 km/1.3 mi long) and so went a different route.

We did not find any problem with the A/C (partly because of the higher altitude, the maharaja's used to go there in the summer because it was cooler. The room actually had a heater (which we did not use) in it. They have rooms and "cottages" we had a room over reception (I can't remember the number) but it was very spacious and has a nice view of the valley (which most do). The Toy Train is great, Seeing sunrise at Tiger Hill is a unique experience if you are willing to put up with a few hundred "new friends". However, I understand that you can also see a good sunrise from Observatory hill, a few hundred meters from The mayfair by foot. Also, for us, seeing a Tea Plantation and experiencing tea tasting at Golden Tips was a great experience.
Best wishes for celebrating your son's birthday.
