If you want a "soft landing" on your first trip to India, like we did, you couldn't do a lot better than the Le Meridien New Delhi. The hotel is a very modern design, both in the lobby and in the rooms. There are several restaurants, most of which cater more to an Indian palate, which was great for us. Monsoon, the modern Indian restaurant, was not cheap, but outstanding. The all-day buffet has an excellent selection and is a good value. Again, it leans toward Indian specialties, but there are continental/American breakfast options as well.
The hotel is located about half a km from Connaught Square and is near many tourist attractions and government buildings.
Minor negatives: Like any Starwood property, you will find that the 'extras' add up. But really, these properties are not for the price sensitive. Also, there doesn't seem to be a general store in the hotel to purchase basic items, although the hotel will probably provide most of them. The bar and alcohol service in general could use some work - move beyond beer, and you will find few cocktails, if any, that will be made properly.
If you want familiar Starwood comfort in an unfamiliar place, this is a fantastic way to enter the somewhat difficult environment of New Delhi.
