The Oberoi Review

A beloved favorite of those who visit Delhi often, the city's first modern luxury hotel, built in 1965, is distinguished by its calm—even when it's packed, the sleek, black-marble lobby is peaceful. You're welcomed by a small, marble lotus fountain strewn with rose petals, and the windows opposite reception look down on the zig-zag pool. Rooms have Western furnishings with pleasant sitting areas and Indian accents; deluxe rooms have more amenities, such as DVD players. All rooms have 24-hour butler service. Pool-facing rooms take in the greenery of the Delhi Golf Club; those on the other side face Humayun's Tomb.

    For comparable price, its the best in Delhi

    All the 5-star hotels are expensive; here you get the closest to good value for the money. The Welcome Hotel, where i used to stay and which was never great, has deteriorated since Marriott left, but they charge the same as Oberoi. Oberoi is MUCH nicer. The restaurants are classy, expensive ut the food is VERY good. The breakfast is over the top. The pool and fitness center are the best in Delhi (pool gets the Sun at a strange angle, so sunbathing is a time dependent activity and there is considerable jockey for the best chairs, and people camp out in the prime chairs which is a per peeve of mine). The shops are the usual, grossly-overpriced, boutique stuff. We have never bought anything in a lobby boutique, in any city in the world. What a rip-off! The front desk staff are spot on! VERY helpful. The business center is modest, at best. The rooms are fine, small and modest but clean. Room service food is great but punitively priced. The best thing is that The Oberoi, the back side facing the golf course, is peaceful. It is located not near to anything-so you MUST be carried anywhere you will want to go. BTW, my favourite restaurant in Delhi is The Copper Chimney (not at the Oberoi-another taxi ride).
