The Oberoi Grand – Calcutta
The Oberoi Grand is located in the heart of Calcutta (now Kolkata). Fondly known as the Grand Dame of Kolkata, The Oberoi Grand is situated in a prime location, near the central business district, bustling markets and cultural landmarks. Dating back to the late 1880s, The Oberoi Grand was frequented by the country’s leading figures during colonial times and even now, hosts grand functions for Heads of State in the city’s largest pillarless Grand Ballroom.
The Oberoi Grand was the first hotel to be acquired by Rai Bahadur M.S. Oberoi, founder of The Oberoi Group. Under his ownership, it became known for its classic style and modern facilities
Covering a vast 1,350 square feet (125 square metres), with high ceilings and glass-panelled doors, the Presidential Suite epitomises the qualities of height, light and space. It includes two large bedrooms with four-poster beds, two bathrooms, a living room, a dining room and five balconies, with views of our garden and swimming pool.
Since colonial times, The Oberoi Grand has been known for its fine cuisine, spectacular dinner parties and legendary live entertainment. In keeping with tradition, these are qualities we espouse even today.
