“One of the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

I was driven from the Airport in a Jag. This alone deserves 7 stars. The Spa and the pool are good. The room is the nicest I've seen and lots of nice touches from the house keeping.
Breakfast is incomparable; a great mix between cuisines and LOTS of choices.
The thing that annoyed me the most is that they were renovating a floor during my stay and the painting smell got to my room through the air con. I had sinus, so I got fever for 2 days. This is the main reason for removing one start. Otherwise, I would have put a straight 5!
NB: This is a late review. I stayed in this hotel in July 2011

Like stated in many other reviews, the Taj Palace provided a wonderful experience. The service of all staff is really outstanding. The rooms are well furnished and equipped and very clean.

The only problem, my colleagues and I had, was the hybrid service model for breakfast, ie partly self service and partly serviced. This resulted in unnecessary waiting and hot food arriving late and not to order. I must add that we had the same experience at other upmarket hotels in India. A late night meal in Kafe Fontana also did not meet my expectations. I did provide this feedback to management and have reviewed Kafe Fontana separately.

I was on my business trip to Delhi and stayed at Taj this time. The experience has been wonderful. It starts right from the moment you step out of your car and end only when you are out of the gate.
ROOM:
Rooms are great. Every fine detailing is taken care. Everything just makes you feel fresh.
It was club room that I got upgraded to it was equipped with a complete BOSE home theater that was awesome. Had a lovely view of the very nice pool.
SERVICE:
Always top of the class. The courtesy, elegance, promptness and serving was all EXCELLENT.
LOCATION:
Hotel is in one of the most posh & aristocratic localities of Delhi.
It was just perfect for me as I was travelling to Gurgaon to my office daily. It was not far from the airport either.
FOOD:
Food is delicious and classy again.
Breakfast was wonderful. However, if you have had Breakfast at Taj Land's Mumbai than you might feel the spread over at Taj Palace is not as lavish.
Something that Taj Palace can match upto with :)

Wonderful place, and as a Taj lover I would definitely want to go back to the same place next time when I am in Delhi.

Room Tip: Go for a club room...Excellent rooms with high speed internet and nice view.

We have attended many functions at the Taj Palace Banquet area. The one which we attended on 30th Aug,2013-UNSUNG Heroes was a treat. The moment we alighted from our car, we were received by the guards and escorted to the entrance of the Banquet area where again the lady escorts took us into the Durbar Hall where we were offered a welcome champagne and any other choice of drink A silent Painting exhibition was on in the hall and if any one desired to buy one he could enter his name with the artist Ms. Kapoor. After spending good time in this hall we were ushered into the next hall where sit down dinner was organized and we were seated at table no. 20 which was close to the dais and the dance floor. A single singer entertained us while we enjoyed the most sumptuous continental dinner. The speed at which the four course dinner was being served at each table was mind boggling . Each table was attended by special staff to take care of the guests.And now the action started a beautiful singer with live band in attendance came on the stage to enthrall the audience. We could not resist the music and went on dancing till the we hours . Now was the time to go to the third stage of the evening, a cigar and cognac room which was the culmination of the evening. While departing from the hotel we were handed over a return gift a packet full of in house made chocolates . This was a real night to remember.
