I was so looking forward to staying at The Imperial and it didn’t disappoint. We stayed for 1 night in December prior to our tour of Rajasthan and Kerala.
The check-in was friendly and I loved padding down the scented corridors past art deco furniture, marble floors and being referred to as ma’am. Yes, there are more modern hotels in Delhi but, you really do sense the history at The Imperial, but without having heritage fittings in your room and the service is second to none.
We had a deco room on the second floor. The view was of the atrium so there wasn’t a lot of light but, after an International flight from the UK that was perfect. The location of the room was also very quiet. Inside the fittings were beautiful with art deco touches. There was a slight musty smell on arrival (I find that quite common in hotel rooms in hot countries when there is limited ventilation) and it soon disappeared after having bodies in the room.
That night we had cocktails in the bar and a fabulous dinner at the Spice Route. The food was excellent and the setting sublime. Yes, the prices are way higher than most people think they should be paying because it’s India but, they were no different to any Western 5 Star hotel. The gym is also worth mentioning as it’s one of the best I’ve come across in a hotel.
I’d definitely stay here again.
