As part of Le Meridien New Delhi's Destination Unlocked program, a tour of Old Delhi included walking the lanes within lanes of Chandni Chowk, Khari Baoli, street food and lunch at Masterji Kee Haveli. Lots of flowers and spices led the way.
As part of unlocking Gurgaon as a destination during the course of the Le Meridien Gurgaon launch, I got to visit the stunning Heritage Transport Museum< that is run by Mr. Thakral of Le Meridien New Delhi. The museum is at Taoro / Taoru in Haryana, about a 90 minute drive from Le Meridien Gurgaon. The museum houses an eclectic collection of cars, hand carts, palanquins, boats, a train compartment and even a bi-plane.
Starwood Group's Le Meridien launched a new hotel at Gurgaon recently. When I found out that the Pullman Hotel will be rechristened to Le Meridien, I was excited. Great location, stunning green views, iKandy and nice staff combined with the Le Meridien brand would mean exciting new things.
