Lonely Planet review
Recently celebrating its bicentenary, the Imperial knows how to age gracefully. Public spaces resonate with opulent period detail such as marble floors, elaborate floral bouquets and more. The 130 rooms are of four-star hotel standard: and include writing desks, restrained decor and modern touches including the Aveda spa and a digital music library – something unheard of when Charles Dickens stayed. Irish Free State commander-in-chief Michael Collins spent his final night here; you can check into his suite.
Our independent authors have visited Imperial Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Cork City.
