Eastern & Oriental Hotel - Profile

General Information

The Eastern & Oriental Hotel is the embodiment of both a special time and a special place. For well over a century, this remarkable hotel - known simply as `The E&O' to generations of travellers - has stood as a testament to the grand elegance of the British colonial era. In many ways, it has also come to represent Penang itself; its story inextricably woven into the island's history, its traditions an indelible part of many a traveller's treasured memory, its name synonymous with the magical island once known as The Pearl Of the Orient. The Heritage Wing is the historical heart of the Eastern & Oriental Hotel. Built in 1885, its Moorish minarets and soaring echo-dome lobby provide the backdrop for khaki-clad doormen and pith-helmeted bellhops to welcome guests to its 100 elegant suites. Indeed, over its century-and-a-quarter history, the E&O's Heritage Wing has played host to some of the world's most celebrated artists, writers and heads of state. Attended to by the E&O's legendary butler service, each suite offers the perfect invitation to step back into the refined elegance and colonial grandeur of a golden age.
