New Delhi is the capital of India and comes with world-class restaurants, luxury hotels popping up and a burgeoning creative scene, it’s definitely worth a few days of your time. Here I share where I stayed in India with tips on where to stay in New Delhi, covering all budgets. I shared a couple of posts on my trip to see the Taj Mahal in Agra and shared tips on the 13 places to see in New Delhi in addition to many a few posts dedicated to each individual place visited, you can find all of them under India on the blog. If you have read those posts you will no doubt by now know that New Delhi is not a city to just skip through on the way to Agra, Varanasi or many of India city gems. New Delhi is definitely worth a few days visit a week, even, considering the how much time you will spend in traffic.
I had a few days of exploring New Delhi so I thought I would share details of my stay and tips on where to stay in New Delhi. It’s no surprise that I am a big fan of Marriott hotels. Having stayed at many of their hotels. From the USA to Germany, from Thailand to England, and From Hong Kong to Poland. I use them a lot when I travel for work but now also look at their properties when traveling for leisure as well. When my boyfriend was going to work in India for two months, I knew it was only going to be one place I was going to be looking at. His office was Gurgaon, which is just on the border with New Delhi. Perfect for my exploring of New Delhi’s tourist sights and perfect for his morning commute to the office.
Marriott Hotels are some of the most comfortable hotels I have ever stayed in. Service is impeccable whatever the time of day and the locations of the hotels are usually in the best spots in the city. Clean, comfortable and affordable luxury! Why wouldn’t I want to stay there? This is one is part of the Courtyard by Marriott Hotels. In addition to a spacious room and comfortable bed, food is great and even better breakfast selection to set up for the day. The hotel also has a rooftop pool, perfect for watching the sunset while lounging by the pool – the makings of a great stay. My stay was super short but my boyfriend stayed on for 2 months with no problems.
The hotel is also on hand to help with arranging tours to many other places around India. They were also on hand to help book and arrange for a car and driver from New Delhi to Agra so that we could visit The Taj Mahal before I left to come back to London. I am keen to revisit India again soon. To book your stay in India’s capital check out booking.com’s list of hotels in New Delhi or Agoda’s hotels in New Delhi and compare deals.
