There is no Guarantee that they will allow all of u in a same coach.
Subject to Cancellation there, how it's happens.
Most Probably they try to give all of u one after another or in a same coach.

The above link states the approximate location of your hotel.
In the proximity you would get good pastry shops named "Cakes", Moghlai Shops like "Rahmania" and "Shiraz" (All near Anindita/GD Island).
There are also small hotels like "Aahar" in EC Market, sweet shop "Kalpataru" in CA Market, places like "City Centre" wherein you would get shops like KFC, Pizza Hut, Inox and many
other big and small shops.
Assuming you pretty well know the location of KC Das opposite to Metro Cinema, Esplanade, there is a small lane at the back side of KC Das wherein you would find two juice shops where they serve Mango Juice 365 days a year.
Nearby KC Das, if you head towards Park Street, there are old and reputed shops like Flurys, Peter Cat, Moule Rouge and others.

cabs run on meter, insist that they do, do not quote any price, just say the destination and hop on, then whatever the meter reading is double it up and add Rs.2 . that is the price u pay, and Dipyaman, in Kolkata bhojohori and 6 BP charge almost the same, I know in Blore 6 BP is audaciously high charged place. And being in SL, he will find it easier, anyhow if U have only a day, have a good time at park street.

How far is Sealdah Station from Howrah Station, need to board Darjeeling Mail. Is there any metro joining both the stations or please suggest a fastest way to reach, since I would be coming from Mumbai by Duronto by 19:40 and need to reach Sealdah by 21:30 or so as train departs at 22:05. Suggestions pls.

dear shanks,the best would be prepaid taxi from hwh prepaid booth just outside will take approx 100rs and in peak hours a maximum of lean hours hardly 15min.its a distance of 5 to 6kms...regular busses ply with fare of rs.6 and take 60 to 90 min.max during peak hours...your journey will be safe as cstm hwh duronto runs quite punctually...
