What a wonderful hotel! Stayed for 2 nights in May on a business trip.
I've stayed in a number of 5 star hotels in Delhi and Mumbai over the years. The standard has generally been high but Leela Palace really does set a new standard. The quality of service cannot be faulted - efficient, polite but low-key - but the highlight for me was the beautiful design of this modern but elegant hotel (which I believe was opened only 2 years ago).
My room was very comfortable and spacious with a really nice bathroom (with separate show cubicle and bathtub). Wi Fi in the room worked like a dream and is complimentary. The gym is located in the spa and is very well equipped. Buffet breakfast was great - I really appreciated the fact that besides the usual breakfast fare to be found in any good hotel, there was also a good spread of local Indian breakfast items - all very delicious. Tried the Japanese restaurant for the dinner - was a little nervous about having Japanese in India but the meal was really good. I assume the chefs have to work with the fact that key supplies such as fish have to be flown in from Tokyo every few days but the kitchen did wonders with what they had available.
My room package came with a hotel car from and to the airport. Highly recommended! The car from the airport was a BMW 730 (pure bliss!!) and the return trip to the airport was in a BMW 5 series.
Overall a great stay
