Being the capital of one of the most dynamic countries in the world, Delhi attracts a sizable crowd of local and international visitors every year. This post should help those looking for Delhi Luxury Hotels during their Delhi sojourns. I have enlisted the top 5 luxury hotels in Delhi, each with a unique USP of their own.
ITC Maurya, New Delhi
The grand daddy of all hotels in Delhi, the Maurya has developed a fair reputation as the most luxurious hotel in Delhi and is the preferred choice of state leaders and business heads. A comfortable 20 minute drive from the International Airport, the Maurya has 440 rooms and 29 suites in an elegant assortment of room categories.The hotel’s premier restaurant, Bukhara, is internationally acclaimed for its unique Dal Bukhara.
If you are planning trip with ITC Maurya in Delhi.
The Leela Palace Kempinski, New Delhi
One of the top 5 luxury hotels in Delhi, Leela Palace Kempinski is situated in Diplomatic Enclave. This 5 star hotel is a 260 room property consisting of oversized suites and guestrooms. The Presidential Suite itself spans across a whopping 4300 sq. ft.Leela’s 24 hour Business Center, with 8 meeting rooms and boardrooms, is the most recommended for corporate conventions in Delhi.
Taj Palace Hotel, New Delhi
Stretching across 7 acres in the exclusive Diplomatic Enclave in close proximity to the Embassy Area, Taj Palace Hotel, for a long time, was a serious threat to Maurya in terms of popularity and quality of service. The hotel enjoys loyal patronage of corporate moguls, politicians and famous Indian and international celebrities. The hotel also has 4 of the most popular restaurants in the city, dishing out delicacies in local and international cuisines.
The Oberoi, New Delhi
The Oberoi has been one of the pioneers of the Indian hospitality industry since early 1900s. The hotel has a great strategic location and is joyously “sandwiched” between the exclusive Golf Club and the historic Humayun’s Tomb. The Oberoi was awarded the “Best Hotel in the City” by Institutional Investor, 2009. The Oberoi is also a recipient of the prestigious Conde Nast Award, an evidence of the high quality services it is associated with.
Le Meridien, New Delhi
The absence of Le Meridien from any list of top luxury hotels in Delhi is conspicuous. Le Meridien holds out on its own when compared to the above heavyweights.
What works in its favor is easy accessibility to all parts of the city due to its central location, just a couple of kilometers off Rashtrapati Bhawan, the official residence of the Indian President.The most courteous staff you’ll ever come find in a Delhi hotel. Plus, the grandest of hotel lobbies you’ll see in India.
