Peacocks and Chocolate Croissants at Maidens Hotel
Maidens is my favorite hotel in Delhi, offering old-world charm in a residential neighborhood. There is something nostalgic about staying in one of the oldest hotels in a city with peacocks wandering the gardens. The location provides solitude from the surrounding hustle, yet being only one block from the metro station allows easy access to the sites of the city. The room sizes are perhaps the biggest in Delhi—if traveling with children, request a Family Suite. Be sure to sample the chocolate croissants at breakfast—yet another delicious reason I return again and again to this historic hotel.
