Conveniently situated off Connaught Circus in Lutyen’s New Delhi, the Imperial is set in spacious grounds and has been sympathetically restored to its former glory. All de luxe rooms and suites have been renovated in a classic style with all modern facilities. There is a swimming pool, four restaurants, including the renowned ‘spice route’ oriental restaurant, and 2 bars. Steeped in colonial history, each of the floors has beautiful paintings and art pieces adorning the walls. Afternoon tea on the manicured front lawn is a particular highlight of a stay here.
