An elegant building that appears unassuming at first glance, ITC Gardenia is a marvel of technological engineering and architectural genius, evident in the seamless blend of its outdoor and indoor spaces that convey a unique sense of the hotel’s garden inspiration, while shrinking your carbon footprint by over 60% when you stay here. From its wind cooled lobby that frames a stunning view of the beautiful outdoor island restaurant Lotus Pavilion with its vivid grass topped roof, to the vertical gardens in Cubbon Pavilion and the lobby, and the distinctive nature-driven theme on each floor moving up from earth to sky, ITC Gardenia brings together the best of what is natural and manmade.
ITC Gardenia uses frontier green technologies in its systems like water recycling, energy and waste management, along with eco friendly materials in its architecture and decor, to offer 5 star luxury for the discerning business traveller, with the soft touch of nature. This commitment to greener practices also extends to the services that we offer. ITC Gardenia is also India’s first hotel to be granted permission to operate helicopters on its rooftop, with the DGCA’s approval and authorisation, to land and take-off under day VFR conditions – interpreted as day time operations only.
