Having stayed in several hotels in New Delhi, and indeed India over recent years, I can easily describe the Oberoi New Delhi as the finest hotel I have stayed in. Whilst New Dehli has its issues with traffic and ease of movement around the city, the Oberoi's location is convenient to the International Airport, the convention and exhibition centre Pragati Maidan as well Feroz Shah Kotla Cricket Ground, and of course the popular Hauz Khas Village.
The Oberoi's level of service and care for their guests is evident when you arrive with a warm and traditional welcome, smooth and efficient check in, and incredibly polite staff who seem to know you by name within just hours of being their guest. The rooms are comfortable, and whilst it's obvious the hotel has been in existence for many years, the décor is neat and well maintained, and has a classy feel about it. I did not visit all of the restaurants in the hotel, however I can describe the breakfast as superb with an array of western fare, as well as traditional local dishes, which were in fact popular with many western guests. The staff in the bar were welcoming, attentive and experienced, and made efforts to be personable and engaged in conversation as they worked. The hotel is within secure gates to the compound with professional yet friendly security, and meticulously kept gardens and surrounds. My visit was in winter, so I did not use the pool and had little time to use the gym, however both seemed well kept and managed. I did not make use of the spa, and if I was to find any point for criticism, it would be that the spa menu was all very expensive, however this is typical of this level of hotel who's accommodation rates are quite high.
My selection of the Oberoi was by chance, as it suited my need of proximity to Pragati Maidan for an exhibition, however, I would make the Oberoi my deliberate first choice hotel in New Delhi, and recommend it to anyone visiting the city.
