The Leela Palace New Delhi
Ranked #1 of 736 Hotels in New Delhi
Reviewed September 9, 2012

From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, the staff at the leela made sure there was no stone unturned in terms of making our stay comfortable and luxurious. You will be greeted by the staff at the reception while checking in with flowers and an Indian style welcome. Check in was a breeze and was done in the comfort of our rooms which was a first for me. Rooms are probably the best In New Delhi in terms of look and space. Being a relatively new hotel you get the sense of it being grand and exclusive. The Spa and health club is good but the not the best i have seen. The pool on the 11th floor is a must see as it offers a 360 view of the city and very few rooftops in Delhi have a similar view. Although the pool has yet to have temperature control, the infinity design makes up for it. The restaurants in the leela are among the best in Delhi and have famous international cuisine restaurants such as Megu and Le Cirque. Only backdrop is the whole experience will leave a huge dent in your wallet but that is expected if you are longing for the luxury that the Leela provides. Its expensive but you will get value for you buck. Lastly, do try their Library bar. Its quiet but elegant and a good place to unwind for a drink after a long day of work/travelling.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room facing the main road/bridge. The other side faces the city and would probably ha...

I was on a business trip with my overseas Manager. Stayed at Leela Palace New Delhi for three nights - 27/2829Sep12. Without doubt it was a marvelous experinece. Not ideal for a business trip where seldom I utilize the amenities. Neverthless great experience from the service standpoint. The staff were highly courteous, always welcoming/greeting in true Indian tradional Namaste!

Great Choice of restaurants with diversing culnary. Authentic interiors/exteriors. Rich experience.
Can't think of any negative aspects...hope they maintain the same standards....Great Job guys!

Beautiful hotel, gorgeous decent sized rooms, wonderful bathrooms, the best food I have had in a hotel for a very long time, staff are amazing, nothing is too much trouble. The only teeny down side is the fabulous pool on the top floor. It isnt really suitable for children even though it is gorgeous! There are sunbeds but no garden to run around in. This is not a complaint - really a comment. We also stayed in the Imperial and if I visited Delhi again I would probably choose the Imperial but only because I think its better if you are taking the kids. This is not to say the Leela isnt anything other than fabulous.

Leela Palace New Delhi is hands down the finest city hotel I have stayed in. I have been back 3 times and have not been disappointed. Every detail in the hotel is designed for royalty with fresh flowers in the lobby daily, beautiful and plush decorations and the room is spacious with thick bedding and a pillow menu. The toilet - where do I begin - is large with a powerful shower and Penhaligon's amenities. There is a television in the bathtub! The food at Leela is also superb, especially the Indian restaurant. The breakfast menu is wide and fantastic. Spa Espa is not to be missed, I have also gone back there 3 times and always leave impressed by the experienced physiotherapists, range of treatments and heated beds. Most of all, it is the warmth of the service staff at Leela that truly sets this hotel apart. Staff members will always greet you with a smile and there is a personal butler on each floor, they definitely have set the standards for what it means to be a world class hotel.

I can't really say too much negative about this place- the level of luxury and service are without a doubt absolutely outstanding. They must replenish 10,000 flower stems on a daily basis and the displays are divine. Every whim will no doubt be catered for. Popular rumour has it that they knocked down a slum to build this place and you can believe it- the evidence is still around of a very poor standard of living just in view. As in all of Inia but for some reason most so here I just ound the juxtaposition of the magnificent luxury an absolute poverty a little hard to stomach. But I really can't blame he hotel for that. It's expensive but you sure get what you pay for; I only knock one star off for slightly off centre location.

By far the best hotel product I have personally experienced. The airport pick up, Room, amenities, dining are all designed to make you feel extra special.
Leela Delhi has managed to collect everything which people would otherwise travel few hundred kilometres to experience.
Knowledgeable staff, great food and the views just added to the stay.
Truly worth every $ spent.
