This was my second stay at Oriental Inn. My first stay was in 2011. Both times they exceeded my expectations in service. Even though, I enjoyed the stay in 2011, I booked amother hotel this year due to a relative price difference. But they charged me for every service. So I stayed there only for 1 day and cancelled my reservation for the subsequent days and decided to make a reservation at Oriental Inn. Interesting thing is that I got the reservation for Rs 25 (~ $0.50) less per day after hotels.com coupon code and cashback. Plus I got lot of complimentary benefits. Free breakfast, free internet, free television service (the other hotel charged me Rs.200 for Internet and Rs.200 for TV service per day), free 1 way shuttle (auto rickshaw) to OFS and US Consulate (worth Rs 300), complimentary water bottles per guest per day and complimentary newspaper. So I saved Rs.1700 (~$28) in 2 days for 2 guests when compared to the other hotel which was just across the road.
The service was awesome with very polite and friendly staff. They also helped me by printing few pages of documents.
The location of the hotel is very good. It is very close to Satyam Cinemas, Express Avenue Mall, Spencer Mall, US Consulate, OFS and many restaurants. I enjoyed my evenings by visiting these places.
I strongly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a hotel near US consulate. I will never look for any other hotel in future for my US Consulate appointments
