The Imperial

Reckoned amongst Asia’s finest hotels, The Imperial is a legend that offers a unique experience embracing facets of India’s history. The 24 king palms, that lead up to the porch, stand as witness to the creation of New Delhi.


As New Delhi’s landmark hotel, The Imperial Hotel is located on Janpath, the erstwhile Queensway. It is steps away from Connaught Place and major city attractions and a half-hour drive from the international airport.


Built in 1931, The Imperial Hotel, Delhi is known for its contemporary colonial style. With high ceilings, impeccable decor and equipped with all the facilities and modern conveniences, the luxury accommodation of 190 rooms and 43 suites, are designed with distinct interiors and overlook the verdant gardens.

Housing award-winning restaurants with a culinary palette that ranges from South-East Asian at The Spice Route, multi-cuisine/ all-day dining at 1911, Pan Indian at Daniell’s Tavern to Italian at San Gimignano, the dining experience is truly impeccable. Each restaurant has an interesting tale to tell on account of its origin or inspiration. The two bars namely the historic 1911 Bar and the Royal Bar- Patiala Peg feature an impressive and extensive range of beverages and the most extensive wine list in the city.
