The Imperial

From the time The Imperial opened its doors in the 1930s, when India was beginning to write the last chapters of its saga on independence, there was little space in New Delhi for an Indo- British rubbing of shoulders. The Imperial provided such a space. Pandit Nehru, Mahatama Gandhi, Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Lord Mountbatten would meet at The Imperial to discuss the partition of India and creation of Pakistan.The Nehru family had a permanent suite here.

The Imperial is a fine confluence of a rich historical past and contemporary international appeal. After many restorations, it has managed to preserve its charm, and exudes it’s former glory. The original Frasers and Daniells paintings and the tavern named after them, the symbolically baptized “1911” restaurant and bar, the Royal ballroom were the places where have met and are still as popular today. The Hotel is a jewel of architecture and its location in the heart of the city makes it the ideal venue for tourists around the world.


Taj Mahal Hotel

One of the most distinguished addresses in the national capital, The Taj Mahal Hotel is located in the exclusive residential area of Lutyens’ Delhi, close to the seat of government. Reflecting the heritage of Mughal Delhi, this hotel offers graceful architecture with modern facilities.

The warm, pristine white lobby of The Taj includes design details reminiscent of Mughal architecture such as intricate motifs, golden inlay work, and niches from ‘Shahjahanabad’, the erstwhile mogul capital. The hotel is a veritable showcase of artifacts with the intricate design work of the lobby’s domes and panels perfectly complimenting the calm marble fountain streams.


Rambagh Palace

Once home to Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II of Jaipur, Rambagh Palace is now one of the Leading Hotels of the World. This is one of the first palaces to be converted into a Heritage Hotel .This airy, cream-color palace is relaxing and wistfully romantic, down to the peacocks strutting across the lawns and the arcaded back patios. Every room and suite reflects a world of royalty with its exquisite antiques, rich tapestry and paintings from an era gone by. Spread over 47 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, the Rambagh Palace is centrally located, near the main shopping area and the historical monuments.


Taj View

Just 6 kilometers from Agra Cantt Railway Station, the elegant Taj View Hotel enjoys panoramic views of the Taj Mahal, and can host up receptions for up to 400 This unique setting is also the stage for Darbar Nights, a theme evening event that will enthral your guests with the exotic cuisine and traditional dances of the Mughal emperors.


The Oberoi Amarvilas

Enjoy the luxury of your own private view of the greatest monument to love. Wake up to the glorious sight of the Taj, bathed by the first rays of dawn. Watch her sparkle by day as the sun shines on her architectural perfection. Allow yourself to be swept away by her romance at dusk. Let the nights be filled with the magic of the Taj by moonlight.

The Oberoi Amarvilas is located 600 meters from the Taj Mahal and all rooms, suites, lobby, bar and lounge offer breathtaking views of the monument. Built in a style inspired by Moorish and Mughal architecture, the resort is a splendid display of terraced lawns, fountains, reflection pools and pavilions with rich interiors that take you back to an era of Emperors and Princes. An interlude at The Oberoi Amarvilas is truly unforgettable
