Grand as they seem, hotels are probably not the best option if you need accommodation for a long period

Shifting to New Delhi for a long-term project, working 24X7, and learning the nuances of the crazy city called Delhi are not easy tasks. It’s a juggling and stressful period for any professional. Clarion Collection, New Delhi, provides excellent lodgings for those coming to the city for a considerable time. In stead of staying in a hotel room cooped up for months, a more convenient option is to stay in a serviced apartment.
The luxurious serviced apartments at Clarion Collection are spacious and comfortable with an extraordinary amount of natural light filtering inside the rooms. This gives the room a cheerful aspect. Each apartment has two bedrooms, a study, kitchen, private lobby and a balcony. The serviced apartments are tastefully and elegantly furnished with central air-conditioning, well-equipped kitchenettes, Wi-fi Internet access, and a host of personalised services including daily housekeeping, room service, laundry, car hire/transfers and reserved parking space that make everyday living exceedingly comfortable. All the serviced residences are safe under the watchful management of round-the-clock security.
Patrick Donnelly, Executive Director, India, Telcordia Technologies, who had come to India for a long-term project and had stayed at a serviced apartment of Clarion Collection, says, “One of the main features is that the apartments are separate from the hotel, but on the same grounds. So we could take advantage of hotel facilities like restaurant, gym, pool, security, etc., but have our own dedicated apartment too. If we had to leave for a trip, we simply locked the door and left. Everything would be as we had left it when we returned. In addition we had many business and entertainment facilities, both in the apartment and in the hotel.”
Clarion, as mentioned above, gives a complete experience to its residents. If you don’t feel like making messes in the kitchen in your apartment, Clarion welcomes you to savour complimentary breakfast at the multi-cuisine restaurant at Clarion. Select an assortment of breads and pastries from the patisserie for celebrating special occasions in your apartment or for snacking in between the meals. Splash and unwind at the Club Prana Spa with complimentary usage of swimming pool, gym, steam and sauna. You also have easy access to the hotels’ fully-equipped 24 hours business center, board room and conference area offering state-of-the-art conference facilities, specialty restaurant serving Pan-Asian cuisine and a bar featuring exhaustive collection of wines, single malt whiskeys and international cigars.
Another benefit of staying at a serviced apartment, particularly that at Clarion, was pointed out by Mr. Donelly, “The real value comes from the quality, commitment and professionalism of the staff. Being full time residents, we got to know the entire staff at Clarion very well indeed. Many hospitality chains say ‘we treat you like family’, but Clarion proved that and more! We celebrated birthdays together, shared family photos, talked about careers and we learned everyday about the nuances of India.”
The serviced apartments are strategically located in the heart of south Delhi within an easy distance to Gurgaon (a business hub) as well as other business and leisure areas.
The serviced apartments are just 25 minutes away from domestic and international airport and 10 minutes away from prominent historical locations.
