Certificate of Excellence
An oasis of calm and comfort sums up the understated luxury of Lutyen’s masterpiece- The Imperial New Delhi, bestowed with the prestigious title of the Best Heritage Hotel by Travel + leisure India’s Best Awards 2017 and the only hotel amongst 7 hotels in India to be listed in Conde Nast Gold List for 2018. An iconic hotel and the most distinguished address situated in the heart of the capital, it is reminiscent of the halcyon days of the Raj. A luxury hotel with an awe-inspiring heritage interwoven in colonial elegance, it dwells in its modern delivery of old-style class and magnificence. The royal palms that lead up to the porch are an integral part of and witness to the very creation of Delhi.

Connaught Place/Janpath
Connaught Place, the heart of New Delhi, is one of the largest commercial, financial and business centers in the Capital. The sprawling horseshoe-shaped circular heritage market is a white dot in the green city, filled with shops, art & handloom emporiums, fashion boutiques, an underground market, cinemas, a range of vintage and new restaurants & bars lined along the inner and Outer Circle. In the midst of all the hustle, CP is great for chilled out evening strolls and people watching, introducing the beauty and rhythm of the city. The ambience gets more colorful as you stroll along Janpath and the Central Cottage Industries Emporium, considered among Delhi’s best shopping areas.

This breathtaking property - I would call it the Temple of heritage and history - comes along with a overwhelming portion of style and beauty. To come to Delhi and not stay here is a sacrilege. You will miss a lot! Certainly, the most delightful and impressive hotel in Delhi

Stayed for 4 nights as part of a north India holiday. Can't fault it. Welcoming with calm, confident service. Spacious rooms with all the amenities you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Excellent restaurants with special mention for "Spice". Looking forward to returning soon.

This is a very high quality restaurant, but this makes it rather stuffy and pretentious (especially some of the guests). Everything you should expect from a 5 start hotel - great pool, great rooms, enormous breakfast etc.
