The Grand Hotel was established in May 1952 and the main building was completed on October 10, 1973. This site was the location of the ruins of the Taiwan Grand Shrine, a Shinto shrine during the Japanese rule. The building is design as so called "Chinese Palace Style". It is also the tallest one (87m) in that style. In 60s-80s this splendid and luxury hotel became the symbol of Chinese hospitality culture in Taiwan. Even today, The Grand Hotel is a remarkable landmark in Taipei city. The architect Yang is the same as the one that designed the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial.
