The Imperial

Visitors seeking a break from the sensory overload that is New Delhi, India, need only find the palm-lined driveway of the Imperial. A turbaned doorman welcomes guests with a smile as they arrive at the British Colonial-era hotel. Inside, marble-floored hallways lead to tea lounges, formal Dining rooms, and a Royal Ballroom decorated with oil paintings depicting life in colonial India. The 233-room hotel also features an outdoor swimming pool and a new spa, but the best way to wind down from a day in New Delhi is to walk through the Imperial’s acres of formal gardens. Accommodations The 190 rooms and 43 suites overlook private gardens and offer serenity from the bustling city of New Delhi. Facilities Features a fitness center, outdoor swimming pool and poolside bar, beauty salon, and barber shop. Dining With nine choices in bars and restaurants on the hotel grounds, including traditional Indian, French, Italian, Asian, and even a tea house, the choice is yours when it comes to dining. The Spice Route, offering Southeast Asian cuisine, is the most formal and traditional of the options. Concierge Recommends The Imperial showcases an impressive collection of British art on India throughout the grounds, including pieces by Thomas and William Daniells. Rates From $400 to about $3,000.
