    THE MANOR- June – 2010

    CUSM-PAN-1Location On a tree-lined street in residential FriendsColony, this bungalow-style boutique feels kilometers away from frenetic New Delhi. First Impressions Floor-toceiling windows in the lobby make for a bright and sunny welcome into what could easily be a chic friend’s home,including the requisite coffee-table book of photographer Raghu Rai’s most compelling works. Rooms Decorated in caramel and chocolate-brown hues, the rooms, 15 in all, are contemporary and chic. Additional upgrades, like iPod docks and luxe bed linens, are underway. Pedigree Owned by New Delhi–based Old World Hospitality, The Manor is in good company, with the kitschy Hotel Broadway and its beloved Chor Bizarre restaurant also part of the brand’s portfolio. Drawbacks Some of the standard rooms are a bit compact. DON’T MISS A hearty breakfast of aloo parathas (potato-stuffed breads), dosas and toast served with housemade gooseberry jam (plus other seasonal fruit jellies from the foothills of the Himalayas) on the patio—all included in the room rate and made to order. At night, dig into cumin gnocchi and creamy tofu kofta at Indian Accent, the hotel’s award-winning modern restaurant. Up Next A twostory spa building, complete with pool, yoga studio and organic restaurant, debuts this September. Value Factor Thanks to the staff’s attention to detail, you’ll feel like you have a personal butler—without paying for one. 77 Friends Colony West; 91-11/2692-5151; themanordelhi.com; standard rooms from US$169. +
