Trident or the Oberoi ?

Both offer us same rates for August in a suite offer they have.

We stayed in the Taj Heritage club room last year and I dont want to do it again. Its great but colaba is messey and once out of the Taj its such a chaos the outside

The trident has club facilities which the Oberoi does not.

Both offer airport transfers as part of the deal.

We plan to stay 3 nights just to get a feel of the marine drive and churchgate area so I just cannot decide which of the two we should opt for

Thanks for any suggestions

Hello panditji,

Both the hotels have practically the same view.The same area as both are adjacent to each other. As read Trident is offering best of the deals on TA. So if it is so with you can go for Trident.

OP mentions suite dont know where they are located.

I have just been to both not stayed there so cant comment on which is better, the Oberoi has higher rating on TA and is generally more expensive. bUT IF YOU GET THE SAME RATE THE TRIDENT MAY HAVE AN ADVANTAGE AS IT OFFERS CLUB FACILITIES, which would mean a few free drinks and high tea and lounge use during the day.

No idea how the Trident club lounge is

If you get a good floor to stay on (15 or higher) then Trident is worth the view presuming its a Sea-Facing room. Beyond this there is not much to pick between the two.

Personally I think with club facilities Trident has the advantage, like mentioned above you have a higher floor and sea view. Well the links do suggest that from both hotels

The rates + other offers will come 1st week April I suggest wait till then to book

Hello panditji,

Pool at Trident Mumbai :

The pool on the deck overlooks the ocean and offers a beautiful view of the famous Marine Drive better known as the Queen’s Necklace.

Pool at Oberoi Mumbai :

The outdoor swimming pool is heated and maintains a constant temperature of 29-30 degrees, all year round with a constant depth of four feet. With Mumbai’s skyline as the backdrop, a gentle waterfall and comfortable chaises lounges.

So both have similar pools open to air. Need to select as per your preference.
