The Oberoi Grand
Kolkata (Calcutta), West Bengal
Warmly acknowledged as the Grand Dame of Kolkata, this hotel started business over 125 year ago and was the first of its kind to be acquired by Rai Bahadur M S Oberoi, pioneer of the reputed group of hotels. Today, the hotel is famous for its colonial style, modern facilities, genteel service and traditional values attracting leading figures and dignitaries from around the world, so much so that it has become an icon of Calcutta’s British Heritage. Ideally located in the city’s central business district, it is diametrically opposite the Maidan – Calcutta’s most frequented park and is the perfect place for sightseeing in one of India’s largest cities.
