Constructed in 1931 by one of Lutyen’s associates, the Imperial New Delhi is a hotel that passionately celebrates its heritage from the days of the Raj. Invitations to connect with colonial-era Delhi can be found at every turn, from the three-tiered afternoon tea served in the atrium to the marble lined hallways and the 1911 Brasserie, decorated with faded photographs of maharajahs and Hollywood stars, and a grand piano in the corner.
Over 230 rooms and suites are divided between the elegant floors of the deco-style mansion house, set in acres of manicured lawns. Furnished in either a colonial or Art-Deco style, all feature high quality linens, marble bathrooms and views to either the atrium or the gardens. Indulge in a Mughal-inspired bathing ritual at the spa, or take a restorative dip in the enormous pool after a day exploring the capital.The 1911 Bar or Patiala Peg are both atmospheric venues for a pre-dinner gin and tonic, after which you can choose between one of the hotel’s four restaurants for dinner (including the Condé Nast acclaimed Spice Route) or venture out to nearby Connaught Place.
