The Claridges, Delhi

12 Aurangzeb Rd., Delhi, National Capital Territory, 110011, India

In 1950, three years after Independence, an Indian family was talked into building a hotel with a British aesthetic, and the result was a winner: tasteful yet unpretentious, in a central yet quiet location. The old-fashioned charm starts on the front lawn strewn with cane chairs, and in the lobby, with its two swing staircases. Standard rooms are medium-size, but all rooms facing the pool have either a window seat, terrace, or balcony. Rooms in the newer wing have plasma televisions, marble floors, and immaculately designer furnishings.

  • Sevilla, the Mediterranean eatery, gets high marks
