Located in the central prime location of the Capital, The LaLiT New Delhi gives the business or leisure travelers a great option to stay in the city. During my stay, my room was on the 18th floor with a glass window view of the sprawling Delhi. My second most favourite thing about the room: the comfortable bedding. These beds should come with a caution note to request the front desk for a wake-up call as once you lay on them you will go into a deep slumber!
Well.. those are not the only things I adored while my stay at The LaLit New Delhi. With a clean room furniture and great lighting, I loved the option of a office desk, WiFi and 24/7 in room dining service.
This here was my soul mate of the trip. An easy chaise with overhead lighting where I could sit and write any/all time of the day. I am told the furniture ha been hand picked by Dr. Jyotsna Suri, Chairperson & Managing Director, The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group herself, and I must admit the attention to the details really makes all the difference.
The LaLiT Mumbai recently hosted a magical evening in remembrance of the legendary Jagjit Singh. Twenty of the biggest names in the Indian music and film fraternity came together today to commemorate the extraordinary musical legacy of the Jagjit Singh on his 71st birth anniversary.

The event was held at InterContinental The LaLiT hotel in Mumbai on February 8, 2012.
Let me be honest, I love the words ‘Room Service’ and that is for me one of the winning highlights of staying at a luxury hotel in the city. The LaLiT New Delhi welcomed me with a complimentary bottle of wine, home made chocolates, boxes of nuts and fruits. If only every morning was greeted the same day..!
