Chosen as India’s best ‘Luxury Historical Hotel’ by World Luxury Hotel Awards 2015, The Imperial is an iconic property in Delhi's 5 star hotel category and the most distinguished address situated in the heart of the capital, reminiscent of the halcyon days of the Raj.

Couples will love
There’s a certain romantic pleasure to staying somewhere that was such a part of India’s history. Built in 1931, it is a bastion of old-style charm and elegance, a reminder of what life was like when the hotel played host to Indian and British aristocracy. And then there’s the shining marble floors, gleaming teak and rosewood timber furnishings and glittering crystal chandeliers to make your heart beat a little faster - what’s not to love!
The 234 elegant rooms and suites are furnished in keeping with the overall design ethos of grand luxury. Some are a colonial and some Art Deco in style and furnishings, but all have large marble bathrooms with bath and shower. Spacious with a king-size bed, lounge and desk, there is also a separate dressing room.
Best room for two for romance
All of the rooms are gorgeous and just made for romance but ask for a room with a view of one of the gardens.
Dining and leisure
With eight places to dine, imbibe or lounge, there’s no excuse to leave the hotel. Start your evening with a drink at the very traditional bar, Patiala Peg or the 1911 Bar which offers more than 500 beverages! The star of the hotel is without doubt The Spice Route, lauded as one of the top ten restaurants in the world by Condé Nast Traveller. Breakfast is served in the signature restaurant, 1911. Get a table in the Verandah Room which has great views over three acres of beautiful gardens. Relive the days of the Raj with a High Tea in the fabulous Atrium tea lounge, reminiscent of the elegant 30s.
Spa & wellness
Sybaritic couples will love a spa treatment in the Mogul Suite, a luxury private spa for couples that evokes a feeling of spiritual harmony and offers the facilities of steam, sauna, and Jacuzzi. More energetic couples will head to the Health & Racquet Club with its well equipped techno gym, pilates reformer and Yoga studio for a workout, before heading to the incredible pool for a swim. There’s so much to love at this hotel!
