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 once Claremont Park.[1] Owned by Barceló Hotels for many years, it is now operated by The Hotel Collection since 10 June 2014. The hotel features 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.[2] It has served as a conference and party venue for a wide range of societies.[3][4][5][6] The Queen has stayed at this hotel when visiting Blackpool, as did Charles Dickens[7] and many British Prime Ministers.[8]

The Imperial Hotel used to host concerts in its ballroom in the 1970s. Some of the bands that performed at the Imperial Hotel include UFO, Judas Priest and Joy Division.[9]
