Hilton New Delhi/Janakpuri marks the first and only internationally branded full service, luxury hotel in West Delhi, India.

Martin Rinck, president of the Asia Pacific region of Hilton Worldwide, says: "This hotel opening is significant for Hilton Worldwide. Not only is the Hilton New Delhi/Janakpuri a stunning new upscale hotel in our portfolio, but it also marks the continuation of the Hilton brand expansion in India, a critically important growth market for us, with its powerful social and economic dynamics, and an ever burgeoning travel demand. In addition, India will prove to be a critical future source market for international travel."

The hotel is located 30 minutes outside of central Delhi, close to the international and domestic airports and near the Janakpuri West Metro station. It has easy access to the central business districts of Connaught Place and Gurgaon, an affluent residential area as well as a significant small to medium enterprise business community.

The ten-storey Hilton New Delhi/Janakpuri comprises 228 rooms including 11 suites. The hotel's 65 Executive and Executive Plus rooms start from 33m2, and are among the largest in the city.

"The Hilton brand is ranked in among the top five international hotel brands in the country and we aim to become the first choice of travellers here," says Dave Horton, global head of Hilton Hotels.

The executive floor lounge enables a quick and private check-in/-out service, breakfast, complimentary refreshments served throughout the day, as well as a range of meeting rooms and high speed Internet access to facilitate business needs.

The hotel also has a 900m2 ballroom, equipped with the latest technology and services, which can cater for a variety of functions.

All guest rooms feature a large working desk, an adjustable ergonomic chair, entertainment system, high-definition interactive flat panel television as well as Italian marble bathroom equipped with a rain shower, and Slumber bed. The hotel also has a Hilton Fitness by Precor fitness centre and spa and outdoor swimming pool.

The hotel's food and beverage offering, including banqueting, aims to attract the local community. Situated off the lobby is Twenty-9, an all-day dining restaurant with an open, interactive kitchen serving Mediterranean, Asian and local dishes.

By The Way is a tea house that offers a selection of fine teas and coffees from the tea estates of India and Sri Lanka. Malt & Co is a whisky bar with a menu of international malt whiskies.

Other restaurants planned to open in the next few months include a Chinese Sichuan and Cantonese restaurant, an Italian trattoria and a Mughlai and Kashmiri fine-dining restaurant. A patisserie will offer chocolates and desserts created by a top pastry chef and the poolside bar featuring a rooftop view of Janakpuri provides another meeting and relaxation point.

Hilton New Delhi/Janakpuri is offering a 50% discount on best available rate for reservations made before 31 March 2010 as an opening special.
