The room was great for family; we had a linked room. The first night though the toilet leaked, it was foul smelling thereafter. The imperial bar was great. The Chinese restaurant was awful, terrible service, allergies were simply not catered for yet arranged; for 4 people over £400 was awful. The food average at best. The Japanese restaurant was fine dining; service great but incredibly expensive for what it was. Overall I have stayed at better hotels for far less money. I wouldn’t return.

I attended the "IMPERIAL JAZZ 2023" event. It was a unique live performance experience that allowed attendees to freely move between live performances at four different venues within the hotel. The event ran from 13:30 to 20:00, providing ample time to immerse oneself in the music, savor delicious food, and enjoy a variety of beverages. It was a wonderful opportunity to indulge in the trifecta of music, culinary delights, and refreshments. The setting was exquisite, with a blend of excellent music, delectable food, and the perfect ambiance. It truly was a luxurious experience, offering a harmonious fusion of entertainment for the senses. I didn't stay overnight at the hotel, so I can't provide feedback on it as an accommodation. However, the staff members at the entrance, lobby, and banquet hall were courteous and made the experience all the more pleasant.
