Recently returned from a short 2 night stay at the Leela Palace Hotel, with my husband and 2 children. Booked 2 club rooms, which I thought were good value on the advance purchase rate. Club Rooms include a pick up from the airport and you are certainly picked up in style, as the hotel sent 2 BMW's for the 4 of us! A very nice start. While the hotel is not that far from the airport, the traffic can make it seem an awfully long way. However, the drivers are confident and new the best routes, and its a good way to catch your first glimpses of Delhi. The hotel location is not particularly central and there is not much in the local area, but that said it is not too far from anywhere, provided you time your trip right (as with any city). We had a lovely welcome at the hotel, complete with bindis and tea, and all formalities are completed downstairs before you are shown to your rooms. We had adjoining club rooms - note that if your kids are younger than ours, there are no interconnecting club rooms - I am not sure about other room types. The rooms were lovely, beautifully finished and clean and any requests for anything from housekeeping or other departments were answered instantly. I found all the staff extremely polite and helpful and they are a credit to the hotel. We organised our tour through the hotel - one slight negative is that they do not have a car that will sit more than 5, so taking a tour can mean 2 cars or having to organise a people carrier from outside the hotel. We did all manage to squish into the BMW 4x4, but it is not ideal (let alone particularly safe!). The tour guide provided was excellent. We had a lovely stay in this hotel and I have only a couple of other comments: the whole hotel was freezing! I appreciate we did not visit at a warm time of year (February) and the A/C is no doubt extremely welcome in the hot months, but it was too cold to be comfortable sometimes! My only other comment was the club lounge snacks in the evening were disappointing, especially for a country with such a wonderful variety of foods! But this is me being picky. Overall, we had a lovely stay and I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.
