Reviewed 19 August 2013

I was only staying at the Lodhi for around 4 hours on a tail end of a business trip however it was the most relaxing and beautiful experience i've ever had at a hotel.

With a swimming pool in your own bedroom suite, to the exceptional food service and attentive staff.. I have to say my stay there was truly special!

If I am heading to Delhi again with business or on a high budget then I would love to go back!

I stayed in the deluxe room during my delhi visit in mid-Feb 2013. The hotel is luxury par excellence with right interiors and ambience. The hotel does meet the expectations for the heavy price one pays. The rooms are large and has a private mini pool attached. Food was average for the hotel of this standard although enjoyed the water front to the restaurant. The view from the rooms is average considering the hotel is in the center of city. The front desk people are cordial, polished and professional.

My family and I just stayed two nights at The Lodhi on a vacation to India/Delhi. Spectacular all around!

As is mentioned by other reviewers, this facility was the Aman up until this February. It has the same General Mangers, Manav Garewal and Robyn Bickford. We had good focused interaction with Manav, a charming and welcoming individual who truly cares about his guests and goes well beyond most other GMs we have dealt with around the world. We did not meet Robyn.

The hotel is truly great. Only 40 rooms. It is not inexpensive but the value is very high. We had four adult family members. We got a two bedroom suite on the fourth floor which was enormous and had its own private plunge pool with king size lounge platform next to it. It overlooked the courtyard and always had fresh swimming towels elegantly placed in a basket at the pool's edge. The suite included a full wet bar, huge living room and dining room where we had tremendous room service on three occasions. All the rooms have large sliding panels for privacy and glass doors that open to the outside patio/pool space. Flat panel TVs and entertainment systems everywhere and the bathroom rooms were very nicely designed. Just great.

We all had massages at the spa and to a person, we felt they were among the finest ones we have ever had; and inexpensive compared to any hotel of this stature we have stayed at; anywhere.The fitness center and pool are tier 1.

Two very nice restaurants...but we found On the Waterfront to be the better of the two. We had a fantastic dinner there on our second night. We dined in separated small glass (only 4 tables) space truly over the water that is nicely illuminated by low in-water lights. The menu is quite diverse and offers an array of well conceived dishes from many different cuisines....it meets the needs of even very particular travelers who don't find Indian food easy to embrace. Our service was attentive and yet discreet.

Now for the most important element, customer service and focus. Ring the bell!! The team is engaging, professional, welcoming, and ready to say yes to whatever you need. The Front desk team is high performing and totally pleasant. A thank you especially to Rahul Rattan, Asst. Manager, Front office, and all his other colleagues, such as Ketan Arora. They really were great.

It is always important to be balanced, so are there any negatives? Yes, I found one. Our room had so many light switches I found them confusing.....but that's it folks...I was able to work through this dilemma...:-)

I/we have been fortunate enough to be able to stay at many fine hotels around the world. The Lodhi is among our favorites and in the top 5. It is not cheap but it is worth it because it delivers real value --- tangible and intangible.

Try it. Trust your decision. You will like it and be provided with a lasting positive memory.

Room Tip: It may be costly, but if you have four travelers in your party, reserve a two bedroom suite. It prov...

Stayed at the Lodhi in April for the 4th year in a row after arriving on our flight into Delhi from Bangkok. The Lodhi has changed hands, used to be owned by Aman and was the Aman Delhi. They've totally changed and lightened up the decor and furnishings and the suite had been painted and was lighter. I think we were on the 4th or 5th floor in a room we had stayed in before. Love relaxing in the plunge pool with some wine upon arriving. This year we were only there the one night (usually stay two) so had to be down in the lobby early the next morning to meet our Batman to head to the Nizzumudin train station to take the train to Sawai Madopur and Aman i khas. The staff is friendly and attentive but didn't deal with them too much other than check in and coming up for our luggage the next morning. We stayed there upon our return for leaving the country. Ate an afternoon meal in the main restaurant. The Mac and Cheese casserole is out of this world. It is in a good location for getting to that particular train station. Our room always looks out on the Humayan's Tomb. Will probably stay there again next March on our way back to Aman i khas.

You surly don't have budget in mind when you are sitting with old friends after long and in place like Aman. But that evening really pinched. The food was below average, service was below average, ambience was just ok and drinks were exorbitantly wrongly charged. Overall, an experience not worth the money we spent and a learning too expensive that brands can be deceptive.

Aman, I will.never be your guest again. Atleast not in Delhi.

Attention to detail everywhere - architecture, art, beds, complimentary beverages and homemade snacks in room, spa and services, food, staff and on. Wonderful retreat from heat and horns of Delhi. Can't imagine asking more of hotel. Manager, Robyn, greated us at breakfast the first day and always addressed us by name. Nice personal touch that made us feel even more special to be staying there. Plunge pool even better than photos.
Note the hotel is now called The Lodhi - not to be confused with 3 star Lodhi. Location makes hiring a car and driver necessary to go elsewhere for dinner. No taxi stand. Taxi called from Oberoi stand had cracked windshield, no seat belts.

Room Tip: Higher rooms give more privacy when using plunge pool.

It's by far the most comfortable ,luxurious not on the conventional "golden old fashion way" but modern tastefully decorated hotel we've been in a long time.
The hotel is big ,but not oversized . The suites are super comfortable with lots of space and
they have a private terrace with a small swimming pool .
It's unbelievably silent in such a noisy city as Delhi...it has a great spa , including a place where you can do Pilates with machines, a huge swimming pool and tennis court ,apart from the usual
spa facilities with high level professionals..The beauty parlor is very good as well.When you get back after an exhausting day going around the city it's a joy to be back !!
It has two very good restaurants and a splendid room service...a real oasis in busy Delhi!!!!
