Sheraton New Delhi, India [Master Thread]
 
Apparently the WelcomGroup New Delhi Hotel -- formerly the Marriott there in the Saket area of DEL -- is to fly a new flag, that of Sheraton.

It will be interesting to see what award category it's given.

(The ITC Maurya Sheraton in Delhi will still be a Starwood hotel.)

Wow, a full circle turn. SPG is making good headway in New Delhi. Sadly, Marriott does not have ANY presence in the Indian capitol.

Room rates are running close to $300.00 USD base for most 5 star hotels. Any recommendations for hotels in the 100-150 USD range?

Another Sheraton in Delhi Taking Bookings
 
The new Sheraton Delhi (which used to be a Marriott in years gone by) is taking bookings for stays starting on May 15th.

I'm curious on how many people will end up booking the wrong Sheraton in Delhi. :D

This may be confusing for a little while, but...

"On May 15, 2007, ITC Hotel Maurya Sheraton & Towers will be rebranded as The Luxury Collection ITC Maurya - New Delhi."

Yes. Watch taxi/car drivers and others get it wrong for quite some time. :eek:

The soon to be Sheraton (i.e., not the current ITC Maurya Sheraton) is located in Saket section of New Delhi and is known as either the Marriott or simply the WelcomGroup Hotel. This Saket property will be known as the Sheraton effective next week.

The still-Maurya Sheraton (i.e., soon to be called Luxury Collection ITC Maurya) is located in the diplomatic quarter Chanakyapuri and should be referred to as "Maurya" just to avoid the confusion.

Mike:

There is an acute shortage of hotel rooms in Delhi, especially 4-5 star categories, which has resulted in the unusually high rates.

High demand (lots of US companies CXOs etc visiting), Low supply = Exorbitant rates.

You either have the $300 hotels or the $30 cheap hotels!

Definitely stay away from the "govt hotels" - such as the Ashoka!

I have the same dilemma when I go to Delhi! :(

All the best!

Has anyone stayed at this property? I'm considering staying there but the price seems too good to be a safe stay. I have a conference at the Oberoi and the Saket location doesn't look like too bad a commute to save about USD 125/night.

I've stayed there a few times, with all but two being before the reflagging. If the location works, then it's nothing I'd run away from -- particularly given the savings amount you mention.

We stayed at the Marriott a little over a year ago, and it was in the middle of nowhere. At least the Maurya Sheraton, if one got tired of the same hotel food, one could walk around the corner to another hotel and have a fine meal. We would not chose to stay at the Mariott/Sheraton again even though it appeared to be closer to the airport than the Maurya Sheraton/Luxury Collection. Both hotels were similarily priced.

The Maurya Sheraton has generally been priced higher than the property now known as Sheraton New Delhi.

"Another hotel" that "one could walk around the corner to" from the Maurya Sheraton is the Taj Palace hotel. Doing that kind of thing of walking around the corner to have a meal at another hotel, as you've noted, around the Sheraton New Delhi in the Saket section is just not possible.

seems like there have been no posts here for the last few years so i'll kick start this thread again....

first of all i apologize for this late review....i stayed here for a couple of nights in january this year (thanks to my neighbours internal piping blowing up & flooding most of my house)....

was taken to the club lounge for checkin....hotel was pretty full, due to the wedding season so there were no suites available....i did however get an upgrade to an executive club room, right next to the lounge....free breakfast & evening cocktails in the lounge....

fairly nice size room....small sitting area....access to the lounge....

there is a restaurant right above the lobby area called dakshin....amazing food....definitely one of the better restaurants in the city....

can't comment on the pool or gym since i didn't use either....

location is very good....its less than 5 minutes walking distance from 3 malls, lots of bars & restaurants, movie theaters & a bunch of other small shops....

Stayed there earlier this month and upgraded to a suite with a 2nd interconnection room on, iirc, the 7th floor.....which is the one with the club lounge.

Full breakfast offered, did not get time to use the club lounge but looked. Service was excellent....I left some valuables in the taxi over to the hotel. Concierge managed to track down the driver and items brought to my room within a few hours. Truly remarkable & attentive service.

PM me if you want the details for the Duty Manager I dealt with, who kindly upgraded me.
