The hotel's "Indian heritage" aesthetic contrasts magnificently with the futuristic, all-glass-block Qube restaurant.
A few Rolls Royce lengths away from ministries, embassies, and business districts, this lavish 260-room business hotel is a whole lot more than your typical check-in/check-out place to hang your suit and tie.
New Delhi is the second-largest city (by population) in all of India, housing countless inhabitants, government offices, and stunning archeological monuments. No matter why you've landed in Delhi though, The Leela Palace New Delhi makes for a serene place to take it all in.
The hotel's meeting facilities span over 10,400 sq. ft., and include the Grand Ballroom, a sparkling icon filled with mirrors and Turkish chandeliers. After you've sat through a lengthy bargain session or speaking engagement, make haste, and get to the ESPA Spa for Ayurvedic massage, body treatments, and salt and oil scrubs.
Those who live in glass houses may not throw stones, but here, they certainly host a fine meal. At Qube, a glass-enclosed eatery in the center of the hotel's courtyard garden, Indian and International cuisine are served all day long. Indian perfection awaits guests at the resplendent Jamavar, and hearty Italian treats can be sampled at the flamboyant (and aptly named) Italian Restaurant.
At day's end, nestle into the Library bar, where intellectual conversations are fuelled by cocktails and a liberal outpouring of Champagne.
