Welcome to Asia’s finest luxury Hotel
The Imperial is a legend that offers a unique experience embracing facets of India’s history, and stands witness to the birth of the capital city of New Delhi. Built in 1931 by Blomfield; one of Sir Edwin Lutyen’s associates and inaugurated by Lord Willingdon in 1936, the Hotel is known for its contemporary colonial style. As New Delhi’s landmark Hotel, it is located on Janpath, the erstwhile Queensway, steps away from the renowned shopping district and major attractions of the city.
Awash in white, The Imperial Hotel is a unique blend of old and new having successfully preserved its past aura to provide its guests with a lifetime of memories. It is a marvelous mélange of victorian, colonial and art deco styles in its interiors. The spacious high ceiling guest rooms, stunning crystal chandeliers, sparkling marble floors, large mahogany tables along with the impressive wealth of original 18th and 19th century art collection that adorns the corridors of the hotel, are a constant reminder of the elegance of the colonial era. India’s great personalities have walked the corridors of the hotel and shared the most daring ideas over a cup of tea in its restaurant and lounges.
The Imperial has 192 spacious guest rooms and an impressive collection of 43 suites, with high ceilings and thematic décor. Its Presidential Suite spans over 3,000 Sq. feet, including spacious & luxurious dining and sitting areas, an expansive master bedroom and study. Porthault linens, Bang & Olufsen television and a private steam room, sauna, and Jacuzzi contribute to the suite’s overall feeling of elegant opulence.
While The Imperial’s history, grandeur and warmly attentive service keep the regulars coming back, modern touches such as high-speed wireless Internet in the rooms help newcomers feel right at home. Fragonard amenities, breathtaking and contemporary flower arrangement by renowned French Artists bring a touch of 21st century luxury to this jewel of India.
The indelible Imperial experience is designed to make your visit perfect in every possible way. More than just a luxury hotel, The Imperial is a destination in itself.
Art has been synonymous with The Imperial since its inception. The hotel’s extensive collection of colonial images and memorabilia has earned The Imperial the moniker ‘Museum Hotel’. Each floor is dedicated to an artist whose original works adorn the walls of the rooms and corridors.
