The Imperial Hotel, formerly Puma Hotels Collection, is a 4-star hotel located on the northern promenade in Blackpool, Lancashire, England. It was established in 1867 and is situated in a large Victorian red brick building, in what, before development, was Claremont Park. Owned by Barceló Hotels for many years, it has been operated by The Hotel Collection since 10 June 2014. The hotel has a gold and blue facade, 180 rooms, The Palm Court Restaurant and the Number 10 Bar.
Granada Television once set up a studio in the hotel to cover party conferences held in the town. It has been used as a conference and party venue for a wide range of organisations. The Queen has stayed at this hotel when visiting Blackpool, as did Charles Dickens and many British Prime Ministers.
