One of New Delhi's most elegant hotels, the Oberoi has 279 luxurious rooms and suites. Fine as the accommodations are, they suffer somewhat (and they are not alone in the city in this regard) from being in a building constructed in the 1960s, when men, and not women, still had most of the say about how much space should be allocated to a hotel bathroom. Rooms overlook either the Delhi Golf Course or Humayun's Tomb. They are furnished in contemporary Indian style and have granite bathrooms. The spa has a range of massages, masks, and scrubs, including Chakra head-and-shoulder massage. The most popular of the hotel's several excellent dining alternatives is the fusion restaurant Threesixty°; locals say they come for the sushi but really are there to let the rest of the city know they have arrived. Service at the hotel is excellent but verges on obsequious at times.
