Let me start by stating the Oberoi has excellent service. I arrived early in the morning without an advance reservation, as my prior arrangements fell through. There were no problems with early check in, and I was shown to my room within just a few minutes of arrival.
The room was spacious and very well appointed. Had a huge walk in closet (who travels with that much stuff?), DVD player in the room, and a bowl of fresh mangos on the table. Top quality room. A short while after arrival, a "floor butler" appeared and introduced himself. I couldn't think of anything I'd ask a "floor butler" to do, but felt special to have one. The grounds are very clean, very quiet and very relaxing in the heart of a busy city.
A few down-sides (minor): The "service" thing can go over the top. After a day or two, it feels odd to have the staff jump up, bow, and "how to you do" every time you enter a room or walk past. The internet charges are high and confusing. The hotel restaurant food was just "ok", but when I marked "good" instead of "excellent" on a survey card, the manager ran after me to apologize and ask for specifics. How do you say "It was ok, but I've had better" without seeming like you were hurting the guy's feelings?
Overall -- highly recommended, but ask your locals for the other great places to eat in Bangalore. There are many.
