“And now we’re back at the beginning,” He said.  Three weeks after landing in Delhi to begin our first trip to India, we were checking back into The Imperial preparing for our 3:30 am flight home.


We were welcomed back warmly as though frequent guests, whisked through check-in and taken to our room.  Just looking forward to the opportunity to freshen up and stretch out on an excellent bed, we found we had been upgraded to a ROOM CORRIDORsuite, making the next 7 hours before leaving for the airport so much more comfortable. We enjoyed the large art deco sitting room with it’s comfortable sofa, club chairs and ambient lighting.  It was a surprise and delight to order truly excellent pasta dishes from the room service menu from San Gimignano, the hotel’s Italian restaurant.

The Imperial’s General Manager has created a highly personal environment so gracious, efficient, satisfying and comfortable, we will no doubt look forward to any opportunity to return to The Imperial. An important building in Delhi’s history it continues to be part of India’s legendary reputation for hospitality, elegance and grace.  It was the perfect beginning and end to our remarkable trip to India.


  • We were very happy with the Imperial Room we booked upon arrival which had an excellent bathroom and good closet space as well as a sofa and comfortable seating area. Excellent value.  Suites are, of course  significantly larger with a glamorous bathroom, separate living room and additional powder room.  Both are extremely comfortable and accommodating.
  • Don’t overlook the Spa. Beautiful facility and excellent services.
