24 Hours in Hilton Garden Inn New Delhi/Saket

My Experience at Hilton Garden Inn New Delhi/Saket

We really enjoyed our 24 hours stay at HGI. The highlights being our spacious room, mouth watering food at India Grill and their exemplary services.

Our Room at Hilton Garden Inn New Delhi/Saket

I was grinning from ear to ear as soon as I entered my spacious room. Not only was it classy & spacious with perfect lighting and chic decor, but the lovely towel Swan and the warm welcome (wine) added a personalized touch. I think the most important thing as a traveler, is to feel comfortable in a hotel… and they nailed this part with these lovely gestures.

and the even more wonderful.. “Wine style” welcome. Oh and that too personalized (Which means no one can touch my wine)

All 114 luxurious rooms boast of a Garden Sleep System ®, an innovative and modern technology to give you that perfect restful sleep which you deserve. The adjustable bed conforms to your body, gently cradling your neck, spine and legs while providing pressure-free sleep. There are two knobs on either sides of the bed to tweak firmness of the mattress as per your liking. Isn’t that amazing?

As a traveler, I am always working on the go. For me, their ergonomic chair (designed by Herman Miller) was a god send. It allows for the perfect posture and comfort, making for that ideal work environment. They provide high speed complimentary Wi-Fi in the rooms and throughout the hotel which is definitely a huge plus.

Did I mention the view from our room was simply incredible? I have reviewed a few other hotels in India and somehow as soon as you pull the curtains, you are disappointed (especially in a big city). I was pleasantly surprised to see this –

Dining experience at India Grill

Okay I admit it, I am a big time foodie so obviously I enjoyed my dining experience at their in-house, lavish, all-day dining, world cuisine restaurant – India Grill, immensely.

Their Sunday brunch is jam packed with delicacies to suit taste buds of all sorts of foodies. With freshly cooked international and local delights straight from the live kitchen, you can be assured of high standards of quality and freshness. Plus, you can decide exactly what goes in your wood-fired pizza, pasta, wraps, shawarmas, salads and the likes. Heck, you can even get your choice of dosa or other local grub.

The signature international dishes at India Grill are – Australian Lamb Chops, Mixed grill platters and the heavenly wood-fired pizza. From local cuisine, ‘Happy de Paranthe’ are hugely in demand here. These sumptuous tandoor flat breads are graciously stuffed with special fillings and keep their patrons coming back for more. If you have a sweet tooth, then you must not go back without trying their fresh waffles and pancakes. Instead of just adding toppings for mango, vanilla, chocolate or other flavors, they are pre-mixed in the batter for the ultimate foodgasm.

The Sunday brunch is an absolute steal at Rs 1699 (Approx $25) per person, excluding taxes. This includes 2 pints of beer or unlimited mocktails and a refreshing dip in their lovely swimming pool. Families with kids specially enjoy this as all kids up to 10 years of age eat free!!

I am so glad we arrived at HGI on a Sunday and were delighted to try out this exquisite spread. Chef Rajat churned out one fancy dish after the other and kept us drooling for more.

Undoubtedly, my top choice was the chicken tikka wood-fired pizza – this was truly the best pizza I ever tried, so far. Apart from that, the Fudge brownie, Mixed non-veg platter and Chicken Parmigiana would be close seconds. Since I don’t have a sweet tooth, I could not really do justice to the waffles and pancakes but they “looked” out of this world and my hubby will surely vouch for them.

So, go get your fill at India Grill during your next visit to the hotel or take a break during your shopping spree at DLF Place mall.
