Problem creating a list programmatically using list template

I am creating a list programmatically using a custom list template called 'Our Meeting Rooms'. When I try to retrieve the list template using the following line of code it raises the exception that 'vale does not fall within the expected range'.

SPListTemplate listTemplate=   web.ListTemplates ["Our Meeting Rooms"];

I can create a list through UI in SharePoint using the same template but for some reason it ican't be used in program.
Any suggestions please??

You could look at the Site List Templates gallery on the site collection to get the GUID of your custom list definition.  Then use the GUID instead of the name when referencing the template.

That's what I initially thought to retrieve the list template using GUID but web.ListTemplates doesn't accept GUID but only the list template name. Is there any way we can retrieve list template using template GUID.

SPListTemplate listTemplate = web.ListTemplates["ListTemplateName"];
