The ITC Maurya has been the preferred residence of visiting heads of state and global business leaders for over 25 years. This extraordinary hotel combines an historic aura with contemporary facilities to create an unrivalled luxury hotel experience.

Stayed here back in February 2015, the week after Obamas visit to India. He stayed on the same floor with his staff only a few days before I arrived, so everything was definitely in top shape on the Grand Presidential Floor.

The hotel is a Starwood Luxury Collection hotel, but only a category 3. I checked a few dates, and seems that a night is about 140 USD for the cheapest room.
For points redemption you need either 7000 points or 3500 + 55 USD. So it is on par with with the valuation most people have for Starpoints around 2 cent per mile.

As most other hotels(and shopping centers), there is a security checkpoint by the entrance.

Hand over the bag to the employees, they scan it and walk through the metal detector. My friend stayed here for over a year during his stay in India 5 years ago, and they pointed that out and said welcome back. I appreciate a hotel that checks if you have stayed with them before, and know what room you prefer etc.

We had the choice of which wing to stay in, and we went for the The Grand Presidential Floor and was upgraded to a junior suite.

After touring around in New Delhi for the day, we went back for some cocktails and simple food in the Executive Lounge. Sadly, there was no seating left in the main lounge, so we had to sit in the meeting room/board room.

When we came back to the room, the turndown service was completed:

The hotel happens to have one of the best restaurants in the world, Bukhara.

Lovely meal, and will definitely be back.

The next day I was even able to spot a blue sky (Something that doesn’t happen to often in New Delhi because of pollution)
