ITC Grand Chola


India’s second largest hotel chain, ITC Hotels, is known for its luxury offerings. Another thing it’s known for is its philosophy, Responsible Luxury—ITC Hotels couldn’t have gotten its reputation as the “greenest luxury hotel chain in the world” without it.

To that extent, it’s no surprise that ITC Grand Chola in Chennai, India—the brand’s 10th Luxury Collection hotel and its most recently launched property—is credited as being the world’s largest LEED Platinum rated “green” hotel. Throughout the resort’s 600 guestrooms, its 10 food and beverage establishments and 23,000-sq.-ft. Kaya Kalp Spa, ITC Grand Chola commits to the triple bottom line focus on people, planet and profit.

Guestroom options vary greatly with categories such as Serviced Residences, Executive Club rooms, Eva rooms (just for women), Tower rooms, ITC One rooms, Chola Suites, a Presidential Suite and a Grand Presidential Suite. In addition to such features as WiFi and Internet access, complimentary hors d’oeuvres and laundry service, guestrooms also offer iPad-controlled technology, the first of its kind within the global hospitality industry.
