While in India, again in New Delhi, there’s the elegant, old but new again, The Imperial Hotel. It reminds me of a large Maharani’s residence since the old ‘dame’s’ facelift has proven impeccable.

Firstly, the long drive to the entrance is lined with palm tree. There are far too many adjectives to add to this setting, the lobby and the decor of the rooms. But anyone who has stayed at the renovated, famed hotel where most notable politicians, Bollywood /Hollywood stars, American and Russian billionaires and the now rising crop of Indian and Chinese mega rich, have taken to the refinement of The Imperial.

At the airport when I told my driver where I’m going (that’s the time I didn’t ask for the hotel’s service), they seemed so impressed..

The restaurants, room service, fine linens, amenities are what most people can only be compared to being Royalty. Rooms are exquisite and large enough for we two mad shoppers and our daily ventures to great boutiques that filled the large closet.

Many rooms look out onto the majestic gardens that have been manicured to resemble artwork. The doormen under the porte cochere are endearing, assisting these fashionistas with ourparcels.

Despite the constant horn honking beyond the far enough away streets, this location is very serene

I’d certainly be happy to hang my sunhat here for several days, weeks or if I ever win the Lotto, chances would be likely that I would be found at The Imperial.
