Its now even more dated (I'm sure it was very contemporary in the 80's) and I don't much like the "modernist" style; both the public spaces and the rooms didn't feel very comfortable. My room was also rather noisy, as the windows didn't seem to block out noise from outside the hotel, even though I was on the 7th floor). Lastly, the breakfast was very disappointing for an Indian high-end property. Limited selection and rather poor quality.
I have been also rather underwhelmed by LM Delhi. I'd rather stay at some of the Crowne Plazas there.

That is a very odd list. Definitely don't think 1,2 and 4 belong in the top 5 hotels in the city.

Some very obvious ones missing from your list are The Imperial, The Oberoi, The Taj Mahal, The Leela and The Lodhi. Just check all the Virtuoso participating hotels and you will usually get a fair idea of what is "best" in the city.

I'm trying to decide between the Oberoi (not yet mentioned on this thread) and the Leela. Currently have cancelable reservations at both. Anyone got an opinion, particularly if you've stayed at both? I have reserved a club level room at both.

If you can get Discovery Black via MasterCard World Elite concierge, then you will have 2 level upgrade at Leela.

Both great options, stayed at both, but personally I prefer the Imperial or Taj purely for great F&B options in the properties. Some of those restaurants, (especially true in the Taj,) are definitely worth it by themselves! Note that Taj Palace club rooms are much more modern and recently renovated compared to Taj Mahal ones. Look into virtuoso if booking any of these.

Location can also be a factor. Leela and Taj Palace are more in the diplomatic area in the city center. (Wider, less congested roads, lots of roundabouts instead of traffic lights!) Taj Mahal too is very central near India Gate. The Oberoi slightly to the south.

If you are going to put up an anecdotal list at least do a google search to make sure it is close to actual data. IMO Leela, Oberoi and Taj are def in top 5, I don't like LM but some people swear by it so I'll include that too. I have not been to Lodhi but people rave about it and its too expensive for me anyway.

Oberoi and Lodhi are in relatively quieter and greener part, Leela is closer to diplomatic missions so food option are limited unless you want to take take a short metro ride/drive. I would recommend Oberoi if its your first time in Delhi because outside of Aman I think Oberoi does hospitality right way. You should be fine at any of these properties though so go with whichever makes most sense to you.
