Bush at Maurya Sheraton Hotel, New Delhi

Bush arrives at Delhi AirportCourtesy of  my friends at TravelPost I understand President George Bush will be spending tonight at the ITC Maurya Sheraton & Towers in New Delhi on his maiden visit to India. His entourage are taking over the entire hotel.   Le Meridien New Delhi is also seeing 100% occupancy with 87 of its 358 rooms said to be occupied by American secret service agents alone. The Shangri-La Hotel New Delhi is also doing good business, reportedly housing much of the international media.   It seems five star Delhi hotels have never had it so good!
