We loved The Imperial Hotel.
The Staff are all pleasant. The reception area and hotel itself has a very welcoming, cosy effect (On check in the receptionist disappointingly failed to mentioned to us about the £70.00 tab they deduct from our card 'for holding' when they take a swipe of your card so be aware of this on arrival as we did not discover this until check out when we were informed of this holding amount taken).
But apart from this, the room was Sea-view as requested, on the 4th floor (If I remember correctly it was Room 412), it was very clean, tidy and cosy, we only stayed one night, it would have been nice to stayed longer but we was there mainly to see the band called 'The Overtones' at the Opera House Winter Gardens.
The room had a Nice Large Modern TV and large comfy bed, nice decor and carpets with Hair dryer, Iron and board, trouser press, kettle with tea, coffee, milk, sugar n all that and your typical supplies of boby washes, shampoos & Moisturising cream and towels.... walking round the hotel and looking out at the none sea-view areas can look a little gory but that's not the hotels fault. that's just shabby looking back streets for ya. so always request sea-view is the surrounding area is important to you.
We also took advantage of the leisure facilities whilst we were there, there is a Steam Room, Sauna, Swimming Pool and Hot Tub which is all clean and tidy, you also had the option to use the gym instead if you wanted. The massage service that we booked (On Offer) was a little disappointing, 20 minutes of someone rubbing oil into your skin rather than massaging the muscles (found this a little boring compared to previous massages I have had elsewhere) but the staff apart are all pleasant and smart.
Apart from the little hick ups mentioned above and like I said The Imperial Hotel Blackpool has to be the best hotel we have ever stopped at.
Food Menu looks a little expensive but I am sure you get what you pay for and that I assume would be Quality!
