Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 16, 2009

The Lalit remains one of the most lavish hotels in which I have every stayed. Everything in the hotel is modern, stylish and sparkling clean. There is a small night club/bar inside the hotel as well as a restaurant. Make sure to try the breakfast buffet, it is awesome!

Lalit is within walking distance of Connaught Place. Very nice rooms, good staff. I liked the gym as very few people used it and it had new equipment. Coffee shop is OK, but breakfast buffet is not as grand as the Taj or Radisson, but still good. Make sure you grab the waiter's attention if you require coffee immediately. For some strange reason, they haven't figured out the caffeine needs of the Western traveler. I really liked their wired internet. High speed, secure and no hassle logging on. Would stay here again. Paid @ $140 a night.

We loved this hotel. It was our home for a total of 7 nights during our 3 week trip to India this summer. The security is very impressive. We felt very safe and secure in a city which is pretty crazy at times. A full breakfast was included. We had most meals in the 24/7 resturant located on the first floor. Desk people were beautifully dressed and very helpful. Room service was immediate. They even knew our names. All issues were addressed promptly. The pool area is breathtaking. Lounge chairs rest in the water. Service was very impressive. We all had our hair cut and other services of the spa which were first rate. The shop owners in the hotel were especially nice. We bought sari's and beautiful scarves from Kashmiri Arts located on the second floor. We stayed at many hotel during our stay which were nice but the Lalit is in a class all its own.

Hotel Lalit has beautiful new rooms. Myself and my clients were impressed with the service. Mr Ravindra Kumar, F&B Manager has been very courteous and always make sure that clients go back satisfied and come back to Lalit for their next trip to India. I always impressed with Ravindra. He has been sending regular mails to remind us the interesting events, gala dinners held in The Lalit.. What a great way to be in touch with the clients in various countries..As promised with Ravindra Kumar I recommended my clients to stay for 15 room nights in month of September 2009. Yesterday I got the feedback from the client that service was impressive and Ravindra and other staff of hotel took good care. All my Japanese clients felt like home..

Thank you Lalit and thank you Ravindra..

I stayed at the Lalit with my partner during our recent visit to India. The hotel is impressive with high ceiling and modern furishings. Nice facilities especially the swimming pool and gym is equipped with new and good machines. The room is clean and comfortable. The staff are polite. Many nice restaurants in the hotel, breakfast is good with wide spread of food, I had dinner at Wok however food is not up to expectation should be improved with its presentation and taste. Excellent location just minutes away to the famous bengali market.

We stayed three nights at the Lalit. I had a mixed experience with them during our stay. We had some minor issues besides that everything went well. We had booked through a travel agent and got a good rate for the room inclusive of breakfast.

The location of this hotel is really good five minutes from railway station and Connaught Place. It was convenient as shopping and loads of restaurants were around the corner. Taxi charged Rs. 50 and auto rickshaw charged Rs. 20 to go to CP. Taxis were available at all times and rickshaw could be hired from outside the hotel.

The lobby is breathtaking with a nice waterfall, huge paintings and pianist, everything in the lobby is spanking brand new. Our room was on the 19th floor with a great view but the room was really old and it was especially visible in the bathroom with old taps, rickety shower, watermarks and chips in the wash basin. We had problems with air conditioning making noises and that got fixed and one day cable went off as well but was fixed promptly. These are very minor issues but for a five star should have been fixed beforehand and it makes a difference between a good and great stay.

The breakfast was really good; it was buffet style with both Indian and American options. There are tons of different items and baked goods as well. The food was prepared fresh and had several cooking stations.

The attitude of the staff was great and were always willing to help with a smile. Wifi is available for Rs 200 for 30 minutes. I signed up for this twice and used it for about 10 minutes each, but upon checkout they billed for Rupees 850 stating that I used the internet for an hour each but could not explain the charges as I had only signed up for the half an hour option. I was not going to argue over $10 as they said have to check with the IT to find out the problem.

We were a bit let down with some little issues, these things are not expected of a hotel trying to compete with Taj or Oberoi. Overall we had a satisfactory stay at the Lalit and will probably stay again because of its great location.
