The soul of Mumbai comes alive at ITC Grand Central, a LEED Platinum Certified hotel in the Existing Building. The city’s British colonial style is eloquently reflected in the architecture of the hotel, transporting the guests to a bygone era, where the unmistakable stamp of old European architecture etches the most glorious silhouettes against the city’s skyline.
Standing like a sentinel in the centre of an older part of Mumbai, ITC Grand Central is a harbinger of metropolitan style. The scale is cosy, in contrast to the impressive dimensions of the tower. The courtyard forms the space, which divides and synthesises the two portions of the hotel, each with its own distinctive character, and yet linked by the architecture of the courtyard space.
On one side is the residential area or the hotel, an exclusive space for business travellers, with quiet spaces, unobtrusive efficiency and secluded areas for dining, health care and meetings. On the other side of the courtyard, is the celebration area, with large banquet halls, three restaurants across one area and an enormous terrace with a panoramic view of the area. The hotel area has a separate entrance on the far side of the building. Here, the car drives in through an independent gate, arriving at a porch that leads directly on to the lobby. A delicate gleam of gold on the inner hollow of the dome and a painting by artist Sanjay Bhattacharya signal the style of the hotel: elegant, sumptuous, with discreet efficiency, and trained personnel whose efforts are directed at anticipating the needs of each individual.
