Fee for Wi-Fi
The Piccadily Hotel New Delhi is a high-end business-focused hotel located in the West Delhi suburb of Janakpuri, relatively close to the airport but removed from most major sights. The 228 rooms are modern, if plain, and have lovely marble bathrooms, some with tubs. Features include lots of meeting space, a lovely spa, a modern fitness center, and a large outdoor pool, plus five bars and restaurants serving everything from Kashmiri cuisine to Italian fare. However, there have been a lot of maintenance complaints about this hotel, particularly in common areas. There are also fees for Wi-Fi. Travelers looking for something a bit closer to the city center may want to check out The Park New Delhi in Connaught Place instead, though rates are far higher.
Modern business hotel popular with Indian corporate travelers
Formerly known as the Hilton New Delhi Janakpuri, the Piccadily is a large business hotel that primarily attracts Indian business travelers who need to be in the area (or at the hotel) for conferences and meetings. It's housed in a large white building with grassy lawns out front. The lobby is grand but not over-the-top, with modern geometrical shapes in the ceiling and marble floors, and a splash of color from a blue-and-gold ornamental wall hanging that hangs over the semicircular front desk. The hallways and restaurants have a business-hotel look and feel, though geometric shapes in the carpeting and marble floors and modern light fixtures hung from recessed ceilings add a little modern flair. Overall, this is a sharp place to stay, though many previous guests have complained that some common areas need some TLC. Additionally, it's worth noting that many guests have found the service here to be underwhelming.
On a loud, busy road in West Delhi's Janakpuri neighborhood, next to a metro station
The Piccadily is located on a loud, busy road in the West Delhi suburb of Janakpuri, right next to the Janakpuri West Metro Station. It's a 25-minute drive to the shops and restaurants in the busy West Delhi neighborhood of Karol Bagh and a half-hour drive to the commercial heart of New Delhi, Connaught Place. Alternatively, it will take about 35 minutes on the blue line to reach Connaught Place. Jantar Mantar, a collection of old, gigantic astronomical instruments, sits just off of Connaught Place as well. Getting to Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, Delhi's best-known Sikh temple, also takes about 25 minutes by car. The sprawling Lodhi Gardens, full of Lodhi-era tombs and meandering paths, is around a half-hour drive away. Humayan's Tomb, one of the city's three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, is a 35-minute drive away, as is the Qutub Minar. South Delhi's Lotus Temple is 40 minutes away by car. Old Delhi Railway Station and Old Delhi's bustling market area -- Chandni Chowk -- are both about 40 minutes away by car. Indira Gandhi International Airport is about 25 minutes away by car without traffic, but can take longer during peak hours.
Variety of rooms and suites with standard upscale chain decor and nice marble bathrooms
The Piccadily offers Standard, Superior, and Club Rooms as well as Executive and Deluxe Suites. The decor is more or less the same from room to room, with beige patterned carpets or hardwood floors, taupe chairs with red throw cushions, and wooden furniture and headboards. It's a polished look, though nothing remarkable, and walls in most rooms are bare, with the occasional piece of abstract art providing the only thing to look at on tan wallpapered walls. Rooms generally have one king or two twin beds. All are air-conditioned and come with king-size beds, desks, air-conditioning, kettles, and smallish flat-screen TVs. Unfortunately Wi-Fi is only available for a fee and can be spotty. Bathrooms are marble, with walk-in rainfall showers. Club Rooms and Executive Suites have bathtubs with glass windows that look out onto the rooms, making them less than ideal for non-couples traveling together (though there are shades to draw for privacy). Deluxe Suites are a better option, with separate living rooms complete with large desks that could seat up to three people.
Fitness center, spa, large pool, meeting spaces, and five restaurants and bars plus room service
Amenities at the Piccadily are aimed toward business travelers and the hotel has plenty of meeting and banquet space for events of varying sizes, plus hotel-wide Wi-Fi for a fee. The on-site Serena Spa has the same contemporary vibe as the rest of the hotel, but with soothing elements such as low lighting and wall hangings of trees and fern leaves. A wide range of treatments and massages are on offer, and it's a nice perk in an otherwise sober hotel. There's also a fitness center with Precor-brand cardio and weight-training equipment plus free-weights. However, despite large floor-to-ceiling windows and back mirrors, the low-ceilinged space is dark. The gym looks out onto a bright outdoor pool that gets lots of sunlight and is good for swimming laps. It's flanked on one side by padded lounge chairs, but they lack parasols.
The Piccadily has five restaurants and bars on-site plus 24-hour room service. Zune specializes in rich Kashmiri food and Mughlai cuisine (traditional North Indian dishes). The latter offers low cushioned seating and evening performances of traditional Indian music. Pomodoro focuses on Italian food and has a staff sommelier who can help with wine pairings. Twenty-9 is open throughout the day and offers Indian, East Asian, and European food, plus a buffet breakfast (for a fee). By The Way is more casual, with coffees, teas, and lighter items such as sandwiches and Indian snacks. Malt & Co, the hotel's bar, focuses on liquor and cocktails, though does serve some bar food.
