It must be very good indeed to be Tom Cruise (your feelings about Scientology aside.) That's because while in India promoting his latest "Mission Impossible" movie, Tom stayed at the country's newest and most expensive hotel, The Leela Palace New Delhi in the city's diplomatic enclave of Chanakyapuri. And of course, he wasn't sleeping in a standard room.

No, Cruise rested his head in the hotel's Maharaja Suite which is billed as a "palace within a palace" and has six rooms, 24-hour butler services, spa rooms, a Jacuzzi, walk-in wardrobe and a private gym. The suite is also equipped with bullet proof glass and a private elevator, making it a Mission Impossible indeed to break into this hotel suite. Oh and the suite also comes with the use of a Rolls Royce Phantom. Some guys have all the luck.

While at the hotel, Tom actually ventured outside his opulent suite to comment on how beautiful the lobby was which is adorned with Indian art and artifacts. He also sipped on a cappuccino at the hotel's all-day dining restaurant, The Qube.

Regular rooms at the hotel start at $216 a night while suites start at around $900 a night.

But it's in India...

Looks great, but I just returned from a round-the-world trip including stops in India, and stays at hotels like the Taj Mahal Palace.  All I can say is after that trip, and owning a hotel myself, I'll do my best to never support the country again... filthy air, trash everywhere, and for the world's 4th richest country, 650 million people earn less than $0.25/day, and another 325 million people earn less than $1.25/day.  Oh, the great kicker (keep in mind that I spoke to owners and GMs of hotels while there): most hotel employees don't get paid.  At all.  Ever.  They work for a place to sleep and food... at the higher end hotels are different: many employees just work for free for the first 3-6 months, then might get paid.  Even high tech jobs might get free workers for 3-12 months... so if you own a business, high unemployment is great, people will truly just work for food.

Not the first...

@John Werkema - fascinating information! What bothers me particularly is the frequency with which I hear EXACTLY the same information - with an emphasis on the amount of garbage, even in areas considered 'upscale' ... in regards to the employees, that's the kind of information you just don't hear about, and makes an individual heartbroken.
