Global hospitality major, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group is planning to set up 16 more hotels across India by the end of 2017. At present, Carlson Rezidor has 76 operational hotels in the country spanning from the midscale to upper upscale segments. India is the most important market and by far the biggest market for the hotel Group in the Asia Pacific, the groups’ Asia Pacific President, Thorsten Kirschke said. He added that the company will see increased development pace in India for the Park Inn by Radisson and Country Inn and Suites brands. This would be mainly because the company sees stronger increase for these two brands in the secondary and tertiary markets across India, which are the next target markets. The company is already present in almost all state capitals in the country, he said. Though the company will further cement its leadership position in the state capitals the focus will clearly be on the tier-II and tier-III cities as engines of growth, he added. The upcoming 16 hotels will be in locations such as Mumbai, Bengaluru, Srinagar, Coimbatore, Pune, Kota, Delhi NCR, Chandigarh and Jammu among others. The company will also be launching its Radisson Red hotel next year in Mohali, Kirschke said. Carlson Rezidor’s current portfolio includes more than 1,400 hotels in operation and under development with a footprint spanning over 115 countries and territories.
