It’s hard to over­state the role of the Oberoi in the so­cial fabric of Delhi. The ho­tel was her­alded as the finest on the sub­con­ti­nent when it opened in 1965 and has been a fa­vorite ever since, so clos­ing shop for a two-year ren­o­va­tion was a big deal. The new look, un­veiled in Jan­uary, ditches the pais­ley-print car­pets and stuffy carved-wood dressers for a lighter, brighter aes­thetic, with jewel-tone walls and el­e­gant, clean­lined fur­nish­ings. De­signer Adam Ti­hany trimmed the room count from 283 to 220, and decked out the new spa­ces with enor­mous bath­tubs and iPads that let you open the door for room ser­vice with­out leav­ing the couch. As for what will never change? The ho­tel’s en­vi­able ad­dress, close to some of Delhi’s top at­trac­tions. oberoi­ho­tels.com; dou­bles from US$385. —SARAH KHAN
