The Remains of the Day

The Esplanade Hotel (1871)
Esplanade Road, Fort, (presently Esplanade Mansion, Mahatma Gandhi Road).

The current condition of the interiors and exteriors of The Esplanade Hotel is shameful. The Esplanade was India’s first grand hotel and the oldest surviving building with a cast iron framework.
