“Royalty at The Palace”
Reviewed May 4, 2009

The Taj Palace exemplifies India's rich cultural heritage and the amazing levels of Service & Guest Relations that are so typical of Taj Group of Hotels.
The expansive marble lobby of Taj Palace is imposing, as are its rooms (specially on their newly renovated Club Floor). One feels Royal, the moment one enters and a stay here (like in the old Taj at Mumbai) is an experience. A must for all foreign tourists visiting India.
More expensive than most other Delhi Hotels, possibly due to its grandeur or its location at Diplomatic Enclave, this one typically costs around US$400 per night for regular rooms, while the Club Floors are around US$600.
The Rooms were well equipped with large LCD TV, DVD player, Internet, Bose Stereo & Bose WorldSpace Radio sets. Apart from the customary welcome drink on arrival (in-suite), we were greeted with flowers, a fruit basket, cookies & a bottle of Chilean Wine. The mini-bar was well stocked, as was the tea/coffee maker. The newly renovated bathrooms have modern fitments and ample toileteries.
The Club Lounge was being renovated, but, we were invited to the open bar in the Verandah, where, the choicest Wines, Champagne & Single Malts were liberally poured for us along with some delectable hors'de'vours.
The Chef at the Coffee Shop prepared excellent Lebanese fare for us & I found it very reasonably priced. The Tea House of the August Moon is a speciality Asian restaurant and famous The Orient Express is also there for continental cuisine & wines.
Excellent Service levels all through. The Taj lives up to expectations with her hospitality.

The Taj Palace made our 1-day stay memorable. All around, spick-and-span surroundings and a delightful environment.

I was happy to see the security arrangements too, just like at airports. Baggage screening and frisking, all done efficiently. Obviously, Housekeeping and Room Service were flawless.

However, the only facility i would want as a tourist is an inclusive Transport Service to and from the airport. For such a prestigious hotel, it is easy to provide.

  • Liked — The polished and pleasant ambience

A top rated business hotel. Ideally located, away from the traffic jams. The Rooms are big and spacious. Taj hotels are known for courtesy and good food. It's really a home away from home.
The Hotel facilities were more than sufficient to launch my product. The arragements were superb. Separate entrances to the halls was really helpfull.

  • Liked — Ambience and closeness to airport
  • Disliked — a bit far away from the city center

Taj Palace is in the midst of a beautiful greenary though man made. The hanging creepers in the pool side tables is a real treat to the eyes. Loved the hospitality of the staff. The facilities in the room were excellent.

Delhi is the only city where I think the Taj properties have serious competition from others and they just don't cut it.

This is a solid business hotel but nothing about it stands out besides the usual high standards of Taj service.

The other contenders in Delhi are The Imperial (amazing) and Le Meridien and Shangri-La are also better than the Taj properties.

Taj Palace Delhi is a Hotel that I frequent. They take good care and the service is really great. I enjoy the hospitality and care they take. The rooms other than Club Class are a wee bit small , so if you like your rooms to be of decent size choose the club class.
