Delhi's iconic Oberoi hotel will be shut down for major renovation from April 1. It is expected to reopen by April 1, 2018.
It is a landmark in the heart of Delhi for the last 50 years and was built by the late M S Oberoi, who founded the group in 1934. The first two hotels that he had acquired, one each in Shimla and Kolkata, were existing properties.
