About The Imperial, New Delhi
Built in 1931 by Blomfield, one of Sir Edwin Lutyen's associates, and inaugurated by Lord Willingdon in 1936, the Hotel is known for its contemporary colonial style. A New Delhi's landmark, it is located on Janpath, the erstwhile Queensway, steps away from the renowned shopping district and major attractions of the city.
Magnificent in white, The Imperial Hotel is a unique blend of old and new, a successful renovation having preserved its historic features and aura. Today it is a wonderful mélange of Victorian, colonial and Art Deco styles. The spacious, high ceiling rooms and suites are lovely, with décor and design themed around the building's own contrasting architectural styles.
In the public areas stunning crystal chandeliers, sparkling marble floors, large mahogany tables and the impressive wealth of original 18th and 19th century art are a constant reminder of the elegance of the colonial era.
