Rohini is not New Delhi. Rohini is an outer district of New Delhi. Cab drivers will be clear in telling you this when trying to up fares.
The Crowne Plaza is nice enough...not sure it's up to 5* with service though. Whilst most service is okay, there were several times staff did not follow through with their promises - especially with Wifi codes! Wifi is not free anywhere in the hotel, and even if you 'upgrade' to a club room package, you need to request new codes for each device you have each day. However the codes rarely get delivered to your room as promised, neither are calls returned with the codes....a frustrating enough experience having to do this daily for each device and then simply not receive them after a request.
The upgrade to a club room is a bit of a rip-off. There is no private 'club room' with free drinks and canapes as offered by other Crowne Plazas. You get a slightly bigger room, wifi (Insha'Allah), "drinks between 6-8"...Indian whisky and wine - no thanks, and high tea.
We saw 2...possibly 3 tourists in this entire hotel during our week stay. Same with anyone looking remotely like they might be staying for business. Possibly due to the remote location - unless you leave at 6am, you'll be stuck in traffic for hours to get anywhere. Hours - guaranteed. There's a Metro station nearby, however you have to walk through mud to get to it and an extremely busy and hostile road junction. The metro station is at the end of the line, and after approximately 45 minutes, you'll need to change lines to get to Connaught Place which in total will take approximately an hour (walking, line changes etc). The Metro is EXTREMELY busy...at all times we rode it...weekdays, weekend evenings - you name it.
This hotel's primary market is Indian weddings. Although the first one or two are quirky and fun to see, you quickly gain a sense that you're a fish out of water in all areas of the hotel. Also as 'everyone know's everyone' (which is to be expected for weddings) there can be quite a lot of communal noise in the common areas outside your room and from inside rooms very late at night for after-parties (requests to reception to contain noise ignored).
There is also a weird outdoor venue next to the hotel which has flashing skylights and clearly audible music till past 1am on certain nights...joy.
The only plus about this hotel is the room service. It's fast, fresh, tasty and well priced. However such good room service is a paradox as there is nothing decent even remotely near the hotel should you feel like dining out.
The area is horrible. Dusty, ugly, rough. We hated "Delhi" for our first few days, however after a week realised that there are other areas of Delhi we'll be staying in next time...Insha'Allah!
