I have stayed in many hotels, b&bs, resorts in my 68 years. The Imperial is the nicest of all. My sister and I stayed in the Eliza Wing, a floor for women travelling without men. The pink was lovely, not overdone. The decor throughout the hotel celebrates the part the Imperial played in history. Every member of the staff seemed pleased to be working there, and were interested in and remembered us from one encounter to the next. The food and service in all the restaurants we visited was fabulous enough that we weren’t tempted to leave the hotel. The driver, though, encouraged us to stop on the way in from the airport for some “street food” which he assured us was served using gloves. Delicious. I will most definitely return to the Imperial on my next visit to India.

I agree with the review by "disports." Imperial has a number of five-star features but is overpriced for what it offers and distinctly stuffy. The rooms are small and antiquated (not in a nice way). There was a problem with the smoke sensor in our bathroom, activated while showering(!), so that was very disruptive. Hotel did not do anything about it, handled the situation in an unprofessional manner. I am not staying there again. So many nicer & cheaper 5-star hotels in Delhi.

From the moment you enter the hotel you are very well looked after. From the traditional welcome ceremony to the check in and then to your room the process is very smooth. Our room was spacious well appointed and perfect for our one night stay. We had lunch overlooking the gardens and the food was very good as was service. In the evening we ate in The Spice Route. Again excellent food well presented and attentive service. Overall an excellent hotel in New Delhi.

Hi, this review is very late, I stayed at the Imperial in November 2017. But just wasn't impressed. It's supposedly a 5-star hotel, but we started out by asking for a couple of amentities at the front desk and no one ever came with them. We had to call and ask again. Also, the staff just isn't friendly as the staff were at all of our other Indian hotels. We ate at the hotel restaurant too and received the same attitude from that stuff. The rooms were very bare and old, it did not feel very luxurious.

This grand hotel was a wonderful part of our stay in Dehli. We were able to experience a hint of the colonial days through the fabulous artwork, furnishing and architecture, yet with all the modern amenities. Outstanding staff, excellent restaurants and bars, fabulous grounds, pool and spa not to mention the gorgeous room (40) comfortable beds and numerous high quality amenities. The buffet breakfast offerings was of exceptional quality and wide variety, the all day dining on the terrace was very enjoyable, as was the high tea. We organised a car and driver (the engaging Suraj) through the concierge who made excellent suggestions for our visit. The restaurant staff were exceptional, remembering where we sat and what we drank the day before, the security staff at the gate helped us avoid following mis-information from helpful ‘strangers’, the door men and security fabulous and all were very welcoming and friendly. We were delighted to have chosen to stay here and highly recommend.
