Stayed from 26th to 29th August. Pros- as you move into the gates you feel the great sense of satisfaction and pride. Takes about 4 minutes from main gates to reception in a car.

We booked 5 rooms at the Leela for one night for a whole family getaway. The main reception areas are excellent and every well presented.

The bed though comfortable is a bit... More

It was an amazing experience in Leela. The College Reunion attended by around 250 people were nicely handled by the staff. The facilities were excellent. The staff were ready to make adjustments even in payment of food bill.It's a very secure hotel.
