I almost didn't choose this hotel, because it looks like a boring rectangle in photos, and I normally prefer places with more character. That would've been a mistake, as The Oberoi proved to be a wonderful base for exploring Delhi. It's well located, boasts a terrific, well-equipped fitness center, lovely indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a nice business center. The room was unremarkable, but nice enough, and the service was excellent. Security is tight; guards checked our trunk and under the car with mirrors each time we entered the gates, and all luggage is x-rayed on the way in. In sum, The Oberoi is an oasis of calm in the middle of 23 million people! The only negatives were the daily charges for Internet use and the rather long commute from the airport, when I first flew in.
