Marriott International further grew its leadership presence in India by opening its 100th hotel in the country while more than 50 signed projects are in its pipeline.
The hotel group's 100th hotel in the country – the Sheraton Grand Bengaluru Whitefield Hotel & Convention Center is opened in the multinational information technology hub of Bengaluru.
The 360-room property features 39 suites, stylish interiors and panoramic views of the garden city. Marriott International’s 100th property in India also offers the Sheraton brand’s signature amenities and facilities like Shine Spa for Sheraton™, Sheraton Club Lounge, Sheraton Fitness and Sheraton Signature Sleep Experience.
After more than a decade of accelerated growth in India, Marriott today has more than 20,000 rooms and 15 brands in 32 cities that create economic opportunity across the country. More than 30,000 people currently wear a Marriott badge in India, and another 3,000 people are expected to join the company in 2018.
Marriott expects to open more than 50 new hotels in India and raise inventory to more than 30,000 rooms over the next few years, thanks to demand for mid-market hotels. Demand is also growing for Marriott’s upscale and luxury brands; the company, for instance, currently has three Ritz-Carlton projects under development in Pune, Mumbai and New Delhi.
