shopping market and premium business district of New Delhi.
Dedicated to Sir Edwin Lutyens, the suite is furnished with some of his original
furniture designs. His famous design of 'The Universe, adorns the flooring
of the living room. Original artifacts and antiques, including a 200 year old
bronze Chinese horse and an old chandelier by Osler, contribute luxurious touches
to the suite. The Four Poster bed, wing chair with a cigar table and Indo-Portugese
late 18th century chaise lounge, bring back the romance of a bygone era. The
luxurious Italian marble-fitted washrooms with glass shower closets and walk-in
dressing rooms, hint at the unmistakable attention to detail, which is the hallmark
of The Imperial.
Meeting & Banquets
The Royal Ballroom evokes the splendour of Lords and Ladies bowing and curtseying,
before they swirled across the floor to the strains of waltzes. This is where
the distinguished guests amused themselves when the hotel was opened in 1933,
by Lord Willingdon.
Probably the only authentic ballroom remaining in India. The vast ballroom today
also serves as a venue for conferences and lavish parties for the elite, sitting
up to 500 guests, auditorium style. The Imperial also offers two mid-sized confrence
rooms for upto 80 people each and three exclusive meeting rooms which can individually
accomodate upto 18 quest.

works of Thomas & William Daniells, the uncle and nephew duo, who travelled
extensively in India during 1786-1793 and painted its unrivalled scenery. In
the process they also discovered the cuisine of India. The restaurant offers
Colonial Indian and Continental cuisine complete with a live band and a Bar.
The Spice Route The Spice Route was the grand riddle and also the golden chariot
of the medieval world. From whence came the aromatic gold of the Indies. The
restaurant offers humble homage and obeisance to the painters of Guruvayur,
to the craftsmen of Borbudur and the wats of Kurugehep, now known as Bangkok.
