Very little discussion in here. Had a 2 night stay and everything went quite alright. Got upgraded to a suite on 8th floor. It seems that rooms on 7 floor have been refurbished but on 8th floor definately not. Room was however ok, bit dated and atleast on somepoint someone had smoked in it. Nice massage chair in room.

Renovated ClubLounge was on 7th floor with couple of basic items on 6pm to 8pm. Strange thing was that they kept score on drinks consumed and ask for signature to a bill when leaving. Nothing charged at check-out however. Outside "happyhours" nothing.

Pool area ok, so was the gym. Definately better than the pool area at Le Meridien for a nap.

Area outside hotel called Saket. Couple of bigger shopping malls with restaurants right next door. No need to take taxis or rickshaws. After all the hazzle in central Delhi this area felt civilized in a way.

If you have things to do in southern parts of delhi then i would recommend this property. But if you need to get to center then there are much better properties around.

Stayed here 2 nights last weekend. My stay mirrors Kelju's. Upgraded to suite on 8th floor with massage chair (a first for me). Old dated room. Apparently 6th and 7th floors have been renovated thus far. I quite liked the lounge. There were 4 hot items in the evening, 2 of which were vegetarian. Buffet breakfast was excellent.

The only strange thing was the folio upon check-out had my first name with an Asian surname (I have a French surname). My address and SPG number were still correct though. Turns out that I was assigned a new surname at the ITC Mhugal where I spent a night before arriving at the Sheraton, but I didn't catch it over there. Anyhow, Sheraton front desk corrected my folio when I pointed out the error. Oddly enough, no points/stay credit have posted to my account yet from the Sheraton stay (even though I got the points/stay credit from the ITC with the incorrect name).

The hotel has temporarily closed and been converted by the Delhi city government to a COVID-19 hospital:

the sheraton closed down towards the end of march & started offering rooms to doctors & other medical professionals for a number of hospitals that are in walking distance of the hotel....then at some point in may it was announced that it will be converted to a covid-19 isolation center for the max hospital, which is a 5-7 minute walk from the hotel....

as of now, the hotel is providing rooms for doctors while asymptomatic patients & patients with mild symptoms are being housed in their banquet halls that have been turned into isolation wards....
