“Stylish Modern Hotel in Central Delhi”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

This Le Meridien (Starwood) property is a modern 4 star hotel close to almost everything in Delhi. This is my tenth time in Delhi and India. I have stayed in numerous luxury hotels in India and this was my second time at Le Meridien. It may not be the most luxurious hotel, but it is close enough!

It is a stylish, chic, trendy hotel that will not disappoint anyone desiring upscale accommodations. The rooms are large, the decor is clean and modern (think Scandinavian design) and each room has a plethora of lighting combinations. The bathrooms are well appointed with a large glass walled shower. In short, there are no hidden surprises; you can relax and steel yourself for the adventures on the streets of Delhi.

The bar/lounge on the lobby floor is dark, but hip and the prices are what you would expect at home in a similar hotel lounge. The "Monsoon" restaurant, also on the lobby floor, serves exotic Indian-fusion cuisine, which is excellent and very artfully presented. Yes, you will drop a hundred dollars for 2 people without wine. Nevertheless, it is worth it. The Chinese restaurant on the 20th floor is also very good, but I come from Vancouver so I'm spoiled when it comes to Chinese cuisine. If you are into desserts and great coffees the "Caffe e Choco Art" in the lobby is terrific and reasonably priced for the large desserts they serve. For everyday dining (breakfast through dinner) "The One" restaurant is fine and reasonably priced with an excellent, very diverse breakfast buffet.

The fitness centre is very good with a variety of machines and weights. The pool is OK, but not great for swimming laps. There are a number of stores on the first floor above the lobby (only reached by a winding staircase from the lobby). The shops offer almost all the typical goods one finds throughout India (e.g. pashmina scarves, clothing, leather goods and jewellery). I don't know how they stay in business, because the walk by (or should that be walk up) trade is minimal.

Anyway, if you are on business and don't have time to get out to shop on the streets, you can always pick up something here (every woman needs another pashmina scarf). Of course, you have to haggle. Whatever the proprietor asks knock it to 50% immediately and when they counter offer - stick to your target price. You might relent at 40% off the original asking price, but don't hesitate to smile, thank the owner politely, and walk out. Nine times out of ten they will chase you down the corridor! Besides, who cannot afford to spend $10 dollars on a scarf?

So what's not to like about Le Meridien? Well, the WIFI is not free and averages about $15.00 US per night (definitely not cool). They should just roll the cost of WIFI into the price of the room.

So now you need to know 2 more things to do while at Le Meridien. One, go eat at the "Spice Route" restaurant or have a drink in one of several bars in the Imperial Hotel on Janpath (about 2 blocks from Le Meridien). Why? Because the Imperial Hotel is old world British luxury and you need to experience this at least once on your visit.

Two, you need to take the brand new train between Indira Gandhi International Airport and central Delhi. It costs about $1 dollar each way and only takes about 30 minutes to travel the entire line. By car, the same trip can take up to 90 minutes in everyday traffic. But the real reason - it is one of the most modern trains you will ride and it is virtually empty. Believe me, you will have total peace and quiet for about a half hour. It is a modern zen-like experience! Taxi drivers hate the competition and will often tell you they don't know where it is (push them to take you). You'll marvel at the convenience and you can easily catch a taxi or a Tuk Tuk for the 5-10 minute ride to Le Meridien or whatever hotel near the Connaught Circle area.

So relax and enjoy the bustle and energy of Delhi knowing there are a few tranquil spots where you can seek refuge.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the India Gate (Southeast of the hotel)

I stayed with my wife and son for 3 days. It is a good place . The rooms are impressive and has the service is good. I had my food at the One where the buffet breakfast spread was nice.Although not terrific the overall impression about the hotel was good.
Few negatives:
Internet costs 600 INR per day
Avoid taxies from the hotel as they are over priced

Stayed four nights at this location and the hotel design is great. Every single room has a view! The decor is contemporary. Even the lights can be managed through a gadget next to your bed! Really modern with hardwood floors, nice size flat television screen, with all the amenities. Free water bottles every day and breakfast was included. The breakfast menu included fresh fruit, and many different options for all type of travelers. They have a great travel desk office inside the hotel that can schedule tours, flights, etc... Many of the guests where using them to book tours! You can book personal drivers at this hotel for the day or just for a couple hours. Security was placed in every hotel in India, so metal detectors where placed in every single location and that makes traveling safe. The atmosphere was mostly for business people but the hotel was great! We where glad staying here and getting so many helpful people with our trip! We had to pay for the internet and some taxes regarding so just be aware. Now they tax you for a luxury tax everywhere you go...

Room Tip: Choose a top floor so you can get a view of the city.

Stayed here for 2 nights on 1st leg of our golden traingle tour. Our party of 6 (3 rooms) all received free upgrades and our 14th floor room had brilliant views over the city and fantastically comfy bed. Lots of free water and newspapers provided. Beware the control panel for lights, had to ring reception to ask how to put lights on! The hotel has a very impressive atrium but don't stand on the 20th floor and look down if you are scared of heights - same for the glass lifts. Funky large open area with chocolate/coffee bar on ground floor and gift shops on 1st level. 1st night we all ate in the buffet - great selection - same for the breakfasts. Had dinner on Valentines night in the Monsoon restaurant and for most part the food was delicious - desert was a let down - not cheap thought - but a nice treat. The Nero bar serve a mean cocktail and we had a very enjoyable evening here. Didn't have time to use the spa but it looked cool.
We stayed here as part of a Delhi-Agra-Jaipur deal put together by a friend of ours so it was brilliant value. Had a tour guide for our 2 days in town and a mini bus at our disposal for the week so had no problems getting around from here.

If you have vertigo this hotel is one to be avoided. I loved the thrill of riding in the glass elevator and peaking over the railing from the top floor right down into the attrium. Lots of design elements make it an interesting place to explore. Staff generally friendly. Stars were the banquetting staff who looked after us for three days during our meetings there. Being the only female there, they really spoiled me!
