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.

At least three or four times a day someone asks us where should I stay in Bangalore, India... give or take three or four times a day. So maybe the Garden City doesn't make our top ten FAQ but if you ever have reason to visit the Silicon Valley of India and ask us that question, the answer is The Leela Palace.

On a recent business trip we had the pleasure of experiencing a stay at the Leela. The lush grounds and ornate architecture of arches and domes was immediately awe inspiring. There's no need to ask whether this is the real Leela Palace. You just know if there was a real Leela, he lived there.

With rooms starting at $250 per night, is the inside as regal as the out?

This is one way to get attention for your hotel opening. The brand new Leela Palace New Delhi Hotel is sending out press releases attesting that it is the "most expensive hotel ever built in India." It's also the first hotel built from the ground up in the city in nearly 30 years.

So naturally, we're dying to know what's inside:

The 11-story, 260-room hotel features some of the city’s largest guest rooms, beginning at 550 square feet in size, dazzling Murano chandeliers from Italy, hand-woven carpets from Turkey and a $5 million collection of traditional and contemporary Indian art....

The 260 guest rooms include 18 spacious suites and the six-room Maharajah Suite, which includes its own private elevator, gym and spa room and use of a chauffeured Rolls-Royce Phantom. All rooms and suites are equipped with Bose iPod docks; Sony high definition LCD TVs with Blu-Ray compatibility; mirror television sets and spa mood lighting in the bathrooms.
