How to Get There
We stayed 4 days at The Leela Palace after having a terrible experience at the Hilton Garden Inn in Delhi. My husband and I came to India to pick up our 17month old daughter we were adopting, and brought with us our two boys, ages 5 and 2, along with my sister. The Leela Palace accommodated our request on short notice for rooms that connected and brought us a crib (not a pack n play, but a real crib). We were welcomed with a flower necklace and taken immediately to our rooms. They brought us a welcome coffee and orange juice for the kids (fresh squeezed best juice I've ever had). We had supper at the Qube and it was really good. I was impressed by the choices on the kids menu and the size of the meals. They even had a vegetable puree for our 17 month old. We would have liked to dine at some of the other restaurants there, but they were out of our price range. We ordered room service two of the other evenings and it was excellent as well. The floor butler brought our kids chocolates after dinner. They had a couple of board games to keep the kids entertained. The rooftop infinity pool is amazing! We went everyday! My 2 year old fell and hurt his knee, the lifeguard, Harrish, got the first aid kit and put a bandaid on it and gave him a stuffed bear. He brought fresh limeade that was made with bottled water just for us. I mean every where you turn someone is there to open a door, say hello or help in any way you need. Now to the building and rooms, WOW! There are fresh cut flowers every where you turn and it smells so good throughout the building. Our rooms were just a luxurious, and very spacious. The bathroom is huge and has a tv in the mirror above the tub. The whole place from the moment you drive up is impressive to see. This is definitely the nicest hotel I've ever stayed at and I hope we can come back some day!
We stayed for 2 nights at Leela hotel, the hotel was packed due to a political event happening that day in Delhi with more than a few ministers staying and visiting the hotel.
Our stay was great, the staff were very friendly and helpful from receiving us until we checked out.
The breakfast at the hotel was very nice with a large variety of dishes both local and international and very helpful waiters that suggest local treats.
staying here is highly recommended.
I have never received such thoughtful hospitality as in this hotel.
Everything is world-class!
The spa is the most luxurious.
The rooms have antiques.
The lobby is festooned with flowers and antiques and carved marble everywhere.
I hear it's from the owner's wife good taste. Nothing finer anywhere.
Sanjeev the butler, rules!
Airport pickup was on-time. All the staff were courteous and always available to help us. Rooms were clean and ready when we checked-in. Major attractions and things to do in New Delhi are within 30 minutes from the hotel. We booked via Amex FHR. Breakfast in the restaurant was awesome and had so many different cuisines.
Points to be improved:
1. Staff was fairly confused and had less knowledge on Amex FHR and the benefits associated with it. They did not inform us of the room upgrade. I am not sure if they upgraded our room from the booking. We decided to have a dinner in the hotel to claim the $100 credit. Staff in the restaurant had no idea about the benefit and literally asked us a paper confirmation for FHR benefit. Coordination between staff can be improved for FHR guests.
2. Property has a descent sized gym. However , it’s located in a section where there is no natural daylight and there is not enough lighting inside the gym. I did not like the experience to workout here in the morning hours.
The staff in this hotel made this and previous stays outstanding and distinguishes it from most luxury chain hotels. They are professional to their fingertips but display the best inter-personal skills possible i.e. they do not behave like over trained automatons. We were there as a couple and every single member of staff was delightful. Rachna in the lobby lounge deserves a special mention for the warmth of welcome we received..
