The Imperial, Delhi $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
Built in 1936, the Imperial is one of the city's classiest hotels, and such a perfect blend of Victorian and modern styles that one almost expects to see Rudyard Kipling sitting in the lobby, working on his laptop. Inside, the hotel has Italian marble floors, teak and rosewood furniture, and high ceilings. The 231 rooms and suites have all mod cons, including spacious bathrooms. The Deco suites are particularly beautiful. Superb works of art hang in the hotel's corridors and public areas (the resident curator will take you for a tour, if you wish). The hotel's new Imperial Spa is scheduled to open by the end of 2007. The restaurants include the Spice Route, offering incredible southeast Asian food in an unbelievably rococo interior. The hotel is a short walk from Connaught Place, the city's downtown shopping area.
