Hemant Mahajan - Antilog Vacations New Delhi Review AVB0098073
We (me, my wife and my in laws) had visited The Imperial near New Delhi last year. We were on a sightseeing trip near the capital city and the Imperial Palace happened to be one of the first places that we checked out while on our way with the place being built by one Mr. Blomfield in early 1930s. We found out that the palace was also used as a hotel. The Imperial houses 192 spacious guest rooms and an eclectic collection of 43 suites, with high ceilings and artistic décor. Enamoured by the beauty my wife had asked me to book the hotel sometime next year.
Hence, last month I booked our trip to the Imperial through the popular travel portal– Antilog Vacations after getting positive response from their reviews center. They gave us the fastest and best deal and we booked our suite for 4 days and 5 nights. Our deluxe room had a huge poster bed redolent of the days of British and the entire room was quite extravagant in appearance. However the presence of TV also kept us in touch with the present and it was a nice way to kill time in the afternoons. The number of channels though left a bit to be desired as the count was low and the hotel could do with some additional new channels.
There were two pools in the hotel - the smaller one is the personal perpetuity pool located on the roof and the larger one being located in the open with a grand sunset view and the maximum that can be expected from an inland location. While departing, the manager proudly said that The Imperial has been awarded the Best Boutique Hotel from India by the Travel & Leisure India & South Asia in 2013 with the Imperial Spa and Salon being awarded as Best Hotel Spa & Most Luxurious Spa (Hotel) in 2012.
