A characterful, Lutyens inspired building, in the grand manner of colonial India. A successful blend of Victorian, colonial and Art Deco styles, full of wonderful antiques, paintings and memorabilia of the region’s history. Acknowledged by many as the finest hotel in India, it is large scale but not overwhelming, elegant and dignified but welcoming. Extensive recent renovations have restored the Imperial to its former glory, showing off the Italian marble floors, teak and rosewood furniture and rare collections of 18th and 19th century art to advantage.

The central location could not be more convenient for stylish shopping, though with an in- house Chanel Boutique (India’s first), book and gift shops, you will not need to venture far.

Acres of lush lawns planted with Royal Palms, lush foliage and flowering shrubs also contain an attractive, if smallish swimming pool. It is difficult to appreciate that you are in the heart of a bustling city and only 20kms from the airport.†

 Floral design is a dramatic feature inside too. A Parisian florist creates artistic themes on a quarterly basis which can be enjoyed throughout the hotel.

Although a large hotel, 234 rooms, it has never lost its soul. The bedrooms and suites are amongst the largest and most luxurious in India, but most comfortable and welcoming. The wide choice of restaurants is dazzling. The “Raffles” of India, this is an exciting beginning or end to your Indian adventure.
