Designed by Heydar Ghiai who was known as a pioneer of modern architecture in Iran and noted British architect Raglan Squire who designed Hilton hotels, the 70,000 square-meter property used to be a first-of-its-kind hotel in the Middle East, both in scale and magnitude. Fascinating with the early morning sunrise accompanied with the cool gentle breeze, the complex features two buildings with 504 mountain and city-facing rooms, 48 junior and royal suites, and the pillar-free Darya-i-Noor Hall with the capacity of 850 guests.
The Parsian Esteghlal Hotel offers a full range of amenities, such as Rose Restaurant with its red-rose-colored theme, Chinese Restaurant with local chefs, the Turkish cuisine Matbah Restaurant, the outdoor Citadel Restaurant and coffee shop beside the garden and outdoor pool, and the traditional-styled Guileva Restaurant. In addition to the Darya-i-Noor Hall, the complex hosts the events with 3 other halls including the nostalgic Neauphle le Chateau with its French theme and old portraits, Yas 1 with granite tiles on its columns and floor, and Yas 2 with its L-shaped design proper for seminars. Guests can also enjoy the Spa with an indoor pool, sauna, and Jacuzzi as well as a fitness center, a shopping center selling attractive souvenirs, and a barbershop. To add relish to the business guest's stay, the hotel has a business center in its lobby which is an appropriate place for business talks with its fragrant smell of coffee. In the evenings, the piano played live in the lobby can give a sense of tranquility to the guests.
