Probably. Yes it is. I have stayed at most of the 5 stars in Delhi over the past 20 years (some claim to be 7 stars!) And certainly this hotel is top of the tree in many ways. What I most like is the colonial feel (not sure I should mention that!) and the subtle decor and service that marks... More

I knew the Imperial several years ago for the amazing restaurants it housed. I thankfully had to stay there for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. The pickup and drop off to/from the airport was great, the welcome from reception was friendly, the service overall in bars/ restaurants/spa/housekeeping was top notch. Really adored the buffet breakfast-its variety and quality (Indian,... More

I have stayed here twice and the decor and service is very good. Nice pool and a small health club, with yoga room. Bar and restaurants are great also. There is a great emporium across the street to shop at also.

This is a truly magnificent hotel and beautifully maintained! The spacious rooms are very clean and tastefully designed. Great pool area. The staff can't do enough for you, simply unbeatable service (and the concierge team is fantastic)! The food is amazing and Spice Route is must for dinner one night! The Imperial would have to be the best hotel in... More

Beautifully remodeled. My wife went for breakfast and asked what kind of tea they had. The reply was "madam, we have everything" and they did. excellent restaurants. service superb. Room very well done although could maybe use better reading lights. Free yoga. Beautiful pool. well located. Highly recommend.

With its theme heavily based on the glories and excesses of the 'days of the Raj ' this is one of life's little luxury experiences not to be missed . Comparing to say Singapore's 'Raffles' it is just as good, maybe better and at something like 1/2 the price ! Beautifully appointed wide corridors and spacious rooms with antique furnishings... More

I stayed here in late July 2013 for a tradeshow. My first experience in India. What can I say the service was perfect. I had two massages while there . The best I have ever had. I was so relaxed and ready for our tradeshow. I can't recommend this place enough. Nothing was a problem and loved the extra touches... More

Okay, my reviews of my hotels in India are getting obnoxious as they are all 5 star and amazing reviews.

This is a great hotel as far as location and ambience go. Although everyone was mostly nice and the service could not be faulted, there was a sense that I was not completely welcome as an Indian. The security (which is required in a hotel of this type in India) seemed to be undertaking some sort of profiling. As an... More
