Inside The Empress

Large areas of the interior of the Empress are undergoing redecoration or renovation but there is still lots of carpeted hallways and walnut beams to get a sense of the flavor of this classic hostelry. The Bengal Lounge on the left offers dining with reminiscences of the Raj. The Palm Room ceiling on the right certainly comes from more gracious days.

Beautiful interiors. I should visit it the next time I am in town.

Did I just see that the Bengal Lounge is closing?

Thanks all for your kind comments.

@JoJo - So far as I know the Bengal Lounge is not closing. In answer to your question the other day, I think the ivy on the outside is already gone. Who knows, though, they may let it grow back.
