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. 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 its former glory. Expect to be impressed with the elegant lobby, with inlaid marble floors, three story atrium, Italian fountains, and British Raj lithographs. Rooms at the Imperial retain the regal flourishes of a wondrous past. High ceilings, large comfortable chairs, impeccable decor and cheerful room service & comforts of more modern world, like TV, telephone, channel music, air-conditioning. The original Frasers and Daniells paintings and the tavern named after them, the symbolically baptized “1911â€ 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.
