The Oberoi, New Delhi

The location of Delhi’s top business hotel, in a ho-hum corner of New Delhi about 10 minutes’ drive from Connaught Place, is either a boon or a bane: you can’t walk anywhere interesting, but the space and relative quiet of the surroundings provide a sense of escape from the city. An Indian society favorite, this is a place to be seen as much as to stay. All 283 guest rooms are exceedingly comfortable and tastefully appointed, some with Indian antiques and textiles; outsize windows look out onto either the adjacent golf course (populated with dozens of varieties of birds) or Humayun’s Tomb in the distance. There are several excellent restaurants—including the ever-popular Threesixty—and the revamped and expanded spa, unveiled in late 2007, features Delhi’s only heated indoor lap pool.

Room to Book: The Kandahar Suite, with sweeping views in three directions.

Insider Tip: Don’t miss Sunday brunch at Threesixty, but skip the much-ballyhooed Travertino, an Italian restaurant operated in partnership with Rome’s famed Hotel Hassler—what should be belissimo is only mezzo-mezzo.
