This is my second visit to an Oberoi Property and I must say, their staff members are so well trained and professional yet friendly that they make sure you are enjoying and comfortable at every moment of your stay at the hotel. From reception to the room service and throughout your stay, the extremely helpful staffs are ready at your service. They are able to make out what their customers are expecting from them and deliver the same with full dedication. Probably, this has been the main reason behind the remarkable success of this hotel.
