The resort is set in verdant green surroundings. You are pleasantly surprised as you enter the Reception area. An electric golf cart quickly transports you to your Room/ cottage. All the staff including the drivers and waiters can converse in excellent english and hindi. The room is spacious and comfortable and equipped with a state of the art Treadmill alongwith the usual paraphernalia. The bathroom is spacious with a tub and rain shower. Don't touch the minibar. Its outrageously priced. For entertainment, there's a modern gym, an excellent plexi-surface tennis court, a cricket/ football field, TT, Snooker and even Croquet (as in Alice in Wonderland). There's a reasonable swimming pool alongwith a lap pool for families to play water polo. The restaurant buffet is well stocked. Breakfast is really sumptuous. There's a spa, but on weekends, you have to book in advance. A great place for both couples as well as for outings with family and friends.
On the negative side, It's a little far from Delhi and wickedly priced. Wish I was richer and could go more often!
My family and I stayed for eight nights at The Grand New Delhi hotel between the 28th of June to 9th of July 2014, The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was fantastic as well as at dinner. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel as we had a truly amazing experince. When I visit india next I would definately stay at the The Grand New Delhi.
It is a beautiful hotel and enjoyed Ajay at the desk and all of the doormen and guards, who were most attentive and protective. It certainly is not the hotel's fault that immediately outside (on the way to the metro station) is a shantytown of refugees from the flooding on the river. When you add the smell of the raw sewage in the river to the difficulty dodging traffic, negotiating the walk on uneven ground, etc., you readily see why no one (except us) is entering the Hilton "compound" except by taxi or tour bus. There are some shops open inside the hotel, but we would warn anyone that the upstairs one on the far left (re the lobby) has some serious arithmetic problems. Buyer beware here, just the same as with any bazaar dealer.

We had one minor issue over when we took the two breakfasts we paid for as we checked in early and checked out prior to having the second breakfast after a conversation and email this was sorted. We love the Radisson and have stayed at a few comfort staff food facilities are always good to excellent. Given an option we would always opt for a Radisson and the one in delhi did not dissappoint.
Everything you could ask for from a really good hotel in Delhi and it made the start of my trip to India very easy and enjoyable. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are of the highest quality. Excellent food and service and the building and grounds are just perfect and very atmospheric. Don't be put off by the fact this is not where most hotels are located, it just isn't an issue. They don't make enough of the fact this is only a few pleasant minutes walk from the Metro which will transport you easily over a large part of the city. As easy to get on with as London or New York and much cheaper with regular trains every few minutes and feels very safe.
