The Lalit Great Eastern Hotel Details
The Lalit Great Eastern is a heritage hotel located in the famous Dalhousie Square of Kolkata. The five-star hotel holds the distinction of being in the hospitality business for over 170 years. Built in the year 1841 and then known as the Auckland Hotel, it was often referred to as the ‘Jewel of the East’.
It also held the title of being the ‘Best Hotel East of the Suez’. Over the last decade or so, The Lalit Great Eastern has been restored and renovated to both bring back the glorious days and yet fit in the modern standards of hospitality.
Today the hotel is an amalgamation of three styles of three different eras – the Victorian, Edwardian and Contemporary. The three eras are reflected in Heritage Block 1, Heritage Block 2 and the New Block respectively. Apart from the glorious rooms, guests can also enjoy meals at the restaurants and bar, take a trip to the spa or just relax at the outdoor pool.
