Oberoi Grand Hotel

Standing stately for over 125 years, The Oberoi Grand - fondly referred as the 'Grande Dame of Chowringhee' - is a heritage hotel whose neo-classical facade and grand pillared entrance mark a successful fusion of classical Victorian and traditional Indian style and reflect the city’s colonial history. In 1926 Ruth St. Denis, Ted Shawn and the Denishawn dancers stayed as guests of the hotel. In 2008, the hotel invited the cast & crew of the film to stay while filming for the documentary project On the Trail of Ruth St. Denis: India 1926.
