I have just finished a month of working in New Delhi and stayed at the Oberoi during that time. This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in, not based on lovely gardens or fancy design, but due to the fact the staff are fantastic from top to bottom. Some highlights (over and above what you would expect from a hotel of this standard) :-
- On check in shown to my room by reception staff.
- Being asked, and supplied with, fruit of my choice every day
- Having many staff members greet me by name within a few days
- Room service menu ( which was superb by the way) where they would tweak the food to suit my palette, recommend dishes and always smile.
- Breakfast staff who genuinely seemed pleased to see me, remembered my preferences and -Valishi (bless her heart) even insisted on carrying my iPad for me.
Every member of staff was prepared to go the extra mile to please and had the result of making my stay memorable. I was lucky enough to meet the GM while I was there and every member of staff is a testament to good management style.
For the cynics who may be thinking "they were working for tips" the hotel has a no tip at the time policy! ...leave a gratuity on check out for all, I emptied my wallet and don't begrudge one rupee.
Do try Taipan on the rooftop it's superb, definately take in Sunday brunch in the main 360 and enjoy both indoor and outdoor pools for the tray if nothing else.
A special word of mention has to go to Isha Chauhan who without her help, patience and perseverance I would never have got IPL tickets while I was there.
There is no choice in my opinion, if you are staying in Delhi stay here.
