I stayed at The Leela Palace on my first trip (business) to India in January 2012 and what a great start. From the moment I was met at the airport to the initial welcome at the door to the hotel I sensed that the Leela was going to be a special hotel. If you are in need of a car during your stay ask for Ricky to drive you around - he's a legend!
It's a beautiful property and now reputedly the best hotel in the city. I haven't stayed anywhere else in Delhi so I can't comment but the Leela is special - no doubt about it. As in all the best hotels in India the service is first class and the staff are friendly as well as engaged and engaging.
The public areas are really elegant. I managed to have a drink in the bar, eat in two of the hotel restaurants and host a cocktail event at the hotel on their outside terrace during my stay. The restaurants were both excellent and the bar is a really atmospheric elegant hotel bar.
The hotel did an amazing job with the event and it went off without a hitch. Everything from the service to the quality of the food that we served was faultless.
Easily one of the best hotels I have had the privilige to stay in. Am planning a long weekend in Delhi for February 2013...
I don't have a single negative comment.
