Exceeds Expectations”

The Leela Palace maintains it's number one status in New Delhi for a reason. From the time that you enter into the hotel, until you leave you are treated exquisitely. While there is much that has already been said about the hotel, I would like to mention just a few of my favorite things that the hotel offers. First: do take advantage of the pool. You are greeted there with refreshments, magazines, towels, and a lovely pool. Second: The gym is lovely. There is a perfect amount of workout equipment up to the very highest standards. Third: Take advantage of the Leela's pillow selection, try a few out. Fourth: the bath is divine. Relax while listening to your favorite music or watching television on the flat screen tv in front of you. Finally, if you have any issues at all, do talk with the staff. They are all highly accommodating professionals who will work to help in any way. The only complaint is that it's location in Chankyapuri puts you a bit out from other restaurants in Delhi, but the Leela's selection is wonderful. I recommend checking in and not leaving throughout your stay.

First Class Hotel in every aspect”

Decor, location, staff, food

The Leela Palace Hotel is first class in every aspect. Decor is stunning, staff are friendly and helpful, facilities are first class and the roof top pool an oasis away from the hustle and busle of Delhi. The poolside hamper with chilled water and lotions is another example of their attention to detail. My wife and I will be flying to Delhi in 2013 for a long weekend to watch the grand prix in 2013, but this is really just an excuse to stay at the Leela Palace again!

Very welcoming for such a luxurious hotel! Incredible!”

I am a returning over and over again guest. The hotel is as luxurious as the most luxurious hotels in the world. It is elegant. While hotels like that are beautiful, they are rarely welcoming, comfortable or relaxing. The Leela Palace Delhi manages to do both. Surrounded by elegance, you never feel you can't be yourself. You never have to dress up for meals. You can enjoy yourself and never feel you have to be formal. My only choice for Delhi. Best kitchen in India. Incredible customer service. Warmth and luxury!

Top quality in every respect”

Large room size. High level of furnishings and fittings in room. Excellent and attentive service.

I arrived very early (around 8.00am) after an overnight flight from Europe, so was very pleased that I could occupy my room immediately. The room was large (around 50 sq.m.) with floor to ceiling picture window allowing in lots of natural light. The room lacked for nothing (with the possible exception of an adaptor to allow me to use my iPhone5 in the iPhone 4 socket on the music system). Throughout my stay I found the service levels exceptional: attentive while never obtrusive, and very helpful. The hotel is chock-full of world-class restaurants, I ate at the Indian food restaurant, Jamavar, where the food was good if not exceptional. All in all, a great experience, and surely The Leela Palace is the best hotel in Delhi.

The Best of Delhi”

Business travelers are restricted on time. Airlines that are on time and hotels that provide excellent service are critical to business trips running smoothly. The Leela Palace was exceptional in service, comfort and facilities. The restaurants were subperb, the car service timely and courteous. The Leela Palace is in my opinion the best business hotel in Delhi.

We have been staying at the Leela every time we visit Delhi and feel that it is best part of our visit! The service is impeccable and the location is fabulous.

The Leela is very centrally-located at the Diplomatic Enclave. The hotel is clean and very comfortable. They have friendly and helpful staff and the hotel offers great privacy for their guests. The Megu, a Japanese restaurant at the ground floor of the hotel, is amazing. The Library has a great outdoor area that offers fabulous cocktails. Will no doubt come back and stay at the Leela in my next visits to Delhi.

New Delhi is much more bearable because of Leela”

Luxurious Design, Friendly Staff and Very safe area

My stay at the Leela was very pleasant. New Delhi is such a hectic city. Too much noise when you are on the road. Since the Leela is located at a very safe area with many embassies there, it offers me peace and serenity when it is time to take a rest at night. Beautiful design, friendly and attentive staff. Couldnt ask for more.

Most friendly hotel I've ever been to.”

excellent service, very courteous and friendly staff

I bave been in enough hotels around Asia and America to recognize whether a hotel is good enough for me to want to go back. And most 4-5 star hotels are. Leela Palace, however, is exceptional in that every single staff from the doorman to the receptionist to the concierge, to the room service staff exude politeness, respect, and a genuine desire to please the guest. And it does not come off as if they are trying too hard. I sensed it when I arrived, all the way until I boarded the car to go to the airport. In that way, it was very remarkable and complements the excellent hotel amenities. An excellent package I must say, and the hotel's people shine most of all.

We chose to stay in this hotel for half a day between different flights. However, during these few hours we used all opportunities the hotel provides. I went to the rooftop swimming pool that was warmed up in December (outside temp was +5C) and My wife went to their spa section. Our overall experience is amazing. It is definitely the best hotel in Delhi, and when we come next time to the city - we'll book the room there.

I was able to fully relax after a long trip”

Food, Comfort and Spa

After three weeks of hard business travel I needed a few days to relax and rest before getting on a long flight home. At the Leela Palace I was able to fully rejuvenate. The rooms are incredibly comfortable and fully equipped with anything anyone would ever want. The food was unbelievable. I have to maintain a Gluten Free diet and the menu had fully designated gluten free items...I was delighted. The spa is excellent! If I were to make a complaint I would say I was slightly over attended. I have never been asked so often if I am comfortable, or if there was anything I needed or if there was anything that could be made better. If you want to avoid this all you have to do is hit the "do not disturb" button and a world of quiet, rest and relaxation awaits you.
