History

The hotel business was started by Surrendra Paul in 1967, with the opening of the Group's first hotel, The Park, a 150 room hotel on the fashionable Park Street in Kolkata, on 1 November; the hotel at Visakhapatnam was added in 1968, while The Park New Delhi commenced operations in 1987. After the death of Surrendra Paul, his daughter Priya Paul succeeded him in 1990. Subsequently The Park Bangalore was added in 2000, while The Park Chennai was commissioned in 2002.[3][6][7]

The Park New Delhi, took up the restoration of the 1724 built astronomical observatory, Jantar Mantar, in 2000, after an MoU with the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI).[8]

In 2006, Forbes, listed "Atrium" in The Park Kolkata, with its menu designed by Italian chef Antonio Carluccio, amongst India's top 10 Most Expensive Restaurants.[9] In 2010, The Independent, listed The Park Hyderabad amongst its list of "100 holiday ideas for 2010".[10]
