Following his stay at The Taj Mahal, George Bernard Shaw famously exclaimed that he no longer needed to visit the original in Agra—a bold, if succinct, way of capturing the wonder of this breathtaking colonial hotel. Built in 1903 by J.N. Tata after he was (reportedly) refused entry to another hotel, it was instantly the most luxurious address in Mumbai. Sitting on the Colaba waterfront overlooking the Arabian Sea, the hotel features myriad architectural styles, including Oriental engravings on Gothic window frames topped by a Florentine dome, and a tower that boasts a modern Moorish aesthetic. Accommodations are housed in this sleek contemporary building, as well as in the opulent Palace Wing, whose period rooms are filled with antiques.
