The 600-room super premium integrated luxury hotel complex is the latest addition to ITC’s portfolio of luxury hotels, accredited as the World’s largest LEED Platinum rated hotel, in the new construction category. Amongst the largest hotels in India, The ITC Grand Chola is slated to alter the tourism and convention landscape in the region given its unique 100,000 sq. ft. of banqueting and convention space, with 30,000 sq. ft. of pillar-less ballroom-amongst the largest in the county, 10 food and beverage outlets and a 23,000 sq. ft. Kaya Kalp spa.

Inspired by the architectural splendour and rich traditions of the imperial Cholas, the ITC Grand Chola is an iconic asset for Chennai and an archetype of the culture and ethos of the region. The hotel’s banqueting and convention facilities will endeavour to transform Chennai into India’s convention capital, contending with markets like Singapore and Malaysia.

ITC Grand Chola’s landmark achievement as the World’s largest LEED Platinum hotel is an embodiment of ITC Hotels’ credo of Responsible Luxury. The ITC Grand Chola epitomizes ITC’s commitment to triple bottom line benchmarks and further adds to ITC Hotels’ exemplary achievement as the ‘Greenest Luxury hotel chain in the world’.

The grandeur and unique attributes of the Hotel will provide a fillip to the hospitality sector in Chennai. Among the many firsts at the hotel is its cutting edge technology that employs one-of-its-kind iPad controlled technologywith features created exclusively by the ITC Hotels team - A first in the global hospitality industry.

ITC’s signature brand of culinary excellence will be reflected in the food and beverage destinations including Peshawri and Pan Asian and introduction of two new brands from ITC; Royal Vega-showcasing the grand vegetarian cuisine from the royal kitchens of India and Ottimo-Italian kitchen, among others. The hotel also features one of the largest spas in the state - A 23,000 square feet Kaya Kalp–The Royal Spa, ITC’s signature spa brand. The hotel also boasts of 21,000 square feet of luxury retail space.

In addition to augmenting business and incremental revenue for the state, the hotel is intended to be a large employment multiplier creating sustainable livelihoods through direct and indirect employment. It appointed a workforce of close to 4000 personnel, including a majority of local craftsmen and workers towards building and completing the hotel project over the last 5 years. It employs over 1000 people to engage in its day-to-day operations.

ITC has redefined the fine art of hospitality in myriad ways through its hotel chain that spans a network of over 100 hotels in more than 90 locations. Beginning with the Chola at Chennai in 1975, ITC’s journey in this business has redefined the face of India’s hospitality industry. Today, ITC Hotels is India’s second largest Hotel chain and the most profitable with offerings under four brands- ITC Hotel at the Luxury end, WelcomHotel in the 5 star segment, Fortune in the mid-market to the upscale segment and ‘WelcomHeritage in the heritage leisure segment. The iconic ITC Hotels, comprising the super-premium luxury hotels in the group, not only offer unmatched hospitality but have also set new standards of excellence in cuisine, accommodation, environment and guest safety.
