The Imperial Hotel is a marvellous melange of Victorian, colonial and art deco styles
City | History & culture
The Imperial is an iconic property, in the heart of Delhi, which has a 1930s colonial feel, and is very atmospheric and reminiscent of the days of the Raj. Situated on the Janpath, it's just a stone's throw away from the renowned shopping and commercial district of Connaught Place, where you'll find museums, theatres, monuments, parks and many cultural sites.
The hotel is decorated with the elegance of the colonial era. The rooms are spacious, and the hotel has high-ceilinged guestrooms, crystal chandeliers, marble floors, glossy mahogany tables, an 18th and 19th century art collection, and hotel staff dressed in regal Indian garb. All rooms and suites are decorated with individual interiors, and overlook the central verdant gardens.
Dining options include the 1911, spread across three areas including a brasserie, bar and veranda lounge. There is also an Italian restaurant, the San Gimignano, The Spice Route, a southeast Asian restaurant and courtyard, and La Baguette, a patisserie.
There are wellness facilities at the hotel, including the award-winning Imperial Spa, offering Savassana Detoxifying wraps, dedicated men's treatments, Moghul Suite rituals for couples, and signature massages. There's also a Techno Gym, and a Health and Racquet Club located near the pool.
