Team, I am hoping someone can help me on this one. My wife and me along with a couple friend are planning a trip from Gurgaon to Manali tomorrow.Since I am the only one who drives, I needed advise on the following fronts:-

1) I was planning to leave on Wednesday evening and reach Chandigarh be late night . Stay there for the night and leave towards Manali on Thursday morning. Is this a reasonable plan???
2) I have two cars a swift and a corolla altis, which one would be better,,,I heard the roads are too narrow in Manali and that might be a problem if I take the ALTIS.

Can someone advise, please?

Yes your plan sounds reasonable as night driving in hills is not a good idea, so make sure you reach Manali in day time.

About the cars I have no idea, I can only say I have seen all types of cars in Manali.

In our limited experience hotels in Chandigarh are tricky, they usually run full. So I would try to pre-book. Actually I have friends in Chandigarh and we usually crash at their place so have not really explored hotels in Chandigarh.

There are no. of hotels available in Chandigarh. If you want luxury stay then go for -
Shivalik View, Sector-22, Opposite to old ISBT
Park Grand or KLG Sector-43.
You should not worry about Good hotels or getting room for comfortable stay while reaching at 11pm because there are no. of Hotel in that row. While driving towards Sector-22 to Sector-43, you will cross Sec-35 and there you will see no. of other hotels are available like Metro-35.

Again reaching at 11pm will be safe whether you travelling by Car or Bus.

You should go for any Car, just keeping in mind the Ground Clearance,as driving on hills and patholes require a tough vehicle always. yes, i am agree with Mridula you will see all type of cars there. if the more luggages are there then go with Corolla because a big dicky will always be an advantage for you otherwise go with Swift.
