Few weeks back me and my friend Mitu went to see our very own Lalit Great Eastern, being a hotelier myself and with kolkata origin i was very excited to see the amazingly renovated Great Eastern Hotel.. Really felt nice to see Lalit Great Eastern.. And Specially want to mention Mr Arpan Bhattacharya's name for the excellent Hertigae Tour given to us.. His knowledge, passion and dedication towards his work and the property amazed both of us.Keep up the good work..
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Asia's first luxury hotel, The Lalit Great Eastern is a heritage landmark located in the main business and shopping district of Kolkata. Restored and renovated over a period of seven years, the hotel holds the distinction of being the longest continuously operating hotel for 165 years. Built in 1841 as Auckland Hotel, it has been referred to as the 'Jewel of the East' and the 'Best Hotel East of the Suez'. Over the years, the hotel has been the favourite haunt of royalty and celebrities from across the world. The Lalit Great Eastern, now restored to its original glory, is an amalgamation of the styles of 3 different eras of history - Victorian, Edwardian and Contemporary, reflected in Heritage Block 1, Heritage Block 2 and the New Block respectively. The original Heritage Block radiates the charm of the British Colonial Era, while the Modern Block incorporates a contemporary look and feel. These blocks have been seamlessly connected despite their distinct character and decor. ... more less
