Stayed at Taj Mahal, New Delhi on several occasions during business trips to the city. The hotel is very centrally located near the Khan market Enclave and serves as a good stop for business travellers. In recent times, other hotels such as Shangri La etc have sprung up closer to Connaught circle so Taj may have lost out on the location advantage.
I like this hotel as it is predictable Taj quality - worldclass. I usually got an upgrade due to my Taj innercircle card and my frequent stays at this hotel. The bar is a great place to hang out after work and has Delhi's hip crowd during weekends.
The breakfast at the coffee shop is the usual 5 star spread with a mix of western and Indian dishes. I always find the internet in Taj properties to be prohibitive specially for a business hotel - almost $ 30 - 40 per day with taxes.
The rooms were always tastefully equipped but I hated the push button master control for the drapes, lights etc - why do hotels experiment with these fancy fittings which travellers need to get used to in short stays??!! Switching on the light in the middle for the night using these master controls are such a nuisance.
On weekends, I would walk to Khan Market area for shopping and for some local cafes. Khan market has several lifestyle and book stores.
I would always ask the hotel to arrange my airport transfers as Delhi airport can be unnerving for getting public transport.
Overall a good hotel but pricing steep: approx +200 USD + airport transfers.
