The Trident is a great for both business and a get-away for travelers. My company's office was in Gurgaon so this was a perfect place for me to stay being a single woman. If I had stayed in Delhi proper, the ride to the airport would have been much longer so this was a good location. This was my first trip to India and Delhi.
When I arrived in Delhi at 3am, I walked through the airport and was met by Trident personnel and quickly escorted to the car. (I booked the car service with the hotel before I arrived in India). The uniformed driver was very courteous and offered bottled water on the ride to the hotel. When we got to the hotel about 20 minutes later, we entered through a manned gate and onto beautiful hotel premises. I was again escorted into the lobby by way of their beautiful "infinity" pool outside the lobby. It was beautiful even at night. (see uploaded pictures here on TripAdvisor). As soon as I walked in, one of the receptionists escorted me to my room.
All the rooms are on one level (which made me a little nervous at first). The room was beautiful though (I had a deluxe king room, which means the basic room anyway) and all my check-in was done there in the room (not at the front desk like most hotels do). The room had a bowl of red rose petals as an elegant touch and free fruit and bottled water. Small touches like mosquito repellant are put in the room, too. Your room will always have some type of faint essential oil/aromatherapy smell because they have it everywhere in the hotel; it's very nice! Overall, the hotel is beautiful, all areas. I only wish I had seen peacocks in the garden!
I used their fitness center about 1/2 the time I was there and was impressed that they have their facilities personnel come in and clean every hour! After every meal in their Cilantro restuarant, the floors are buffed to a shine. The standards for cleanliness are SUPER high; even one of the hotel workers told me that their standard is higher than most hotels. The guest pool is an infinity pool and is absolutely great to see, jump in, or lounge by.
I also used the Spa services and had a one hour massage that was beyond any I received in some of the nicest spas in the US. They are a little pricey but it was a good service and great staff. Everyone greets you no matter where you are; on a simple walk from my room to the restaurant, you will be greeted by at least 3-5 people from the hotel.
Car service is easy to book, too, to go anywhere you'd like in Delhi. I found the prices here higher than when I was in Bombay. Unless you're adventurous and/or have someone traveling with you, I wouldn't recommend using the rickshaws or other taxis to get around. I used the hotel's car service to go to work each day and it was much more convenient for me. And trust me, you don't want to rent a car and drive on your own. Just use the hotel's car service.
There were not a lot of children which made me like this place even more. The Trident seemed more like a resort to me than a hotel because of the level of service and it's single level format. You will receive top-notch treatment, I can guarantee you. Enjoy your stay!
