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.
