On searching I found a few hotels but I am not aware about the
Mangalore local space (in terms of hotel's central location, their
cleanliness and hygiene standards, etc... ) so I'll let a local
volunteer recommend after checking. But, since you mentioned that
price is not an impediment, I thought I should mention that I've heard
good things about the Ginger Hotels
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ginger_Hotels, if they are the same Tata
group as mentioned in the travel portals below).

Most car rental companies would have tie-ups with 3*,4* and 5* hotels
so you can ask the hotel manager to make car-rental arrangements. Hope
the above information helps :)

Also, October to March is peak tourist season in India, the most
difficult (and daresay, expensive) time to get flights and hotel
