Grand may be the best way to describe New Delhi. While it may not be as picturesque as some of India’s other cities, New Delhi’s storied history and rich culture make it an exciting destination for travellers who desire to see more than just the tourists’ India. Whether you’re headed to this stimulating city for exploration or as a starting point for further adventures in Northern India, IHG’s New Delhi hotels are conveniently located and well-poised to help you make the most of your stay.
Delhi’s history makes itself apparent as you walk through the streets. One moment you will find yourself staring in wonder at the majestic Qutb Minar Tower, built in 1119 by a Turkish King, while in the next you’ll be looking up at Rashtrapati Bhavan, an artifact of British Imperialism from the 1920s. Today, India’s President calls the palace home.
If you are feeling introspective, you might take a trip to the peaceful Rajghat, a park where Mahatma Ghandi was cremated, or to Lodi Gardens, one of the most pleasant spots in all of Delhi. The city can be overwhelming for the uninitiated and many travellers prefer to arrange for drivers to ferry them from site to site. Our hotels in Delhi are all equipped to help you find a driver or a tour company to help make your visit a success.
During your stay, make sure to sample widely from Delhi’s vibrant dining scene. When it comes to food in New Delhi, you can only be sure of one thing: Everyone has a different favorite place that you simply must sample. A good solution? Try them all! Whether your tastes run to lavishly orchestrated multi-course meals or to tiny hole-in-the-wall joints, Delhi will have your mouth watering. Wherever you go, don’t miss out on the delicious kebab platters available everywhere or the tasty kulfis (ice cream).
Making the most of your time in this frenetic city is easy when you stay at one of our IHG hotels in New Delhi. While the pace outside is go go go, our hotels provide the peace and relaxation you need to recharge after a day of touring.
