The new properties would reiterate the company’s focus not only on strengthening its presence in existing markets, but also on tapping the rapidly-growing secondary markets in India. All the hotels are expected to be open by mid-2017.
Ballotti said, “We have a portfolio of well-respected and globally-recognised brands that span the hospitality spectrum, with a particularly strong presence in the economy and midscale segments.”
“The addition of these new Ramada, Days Inn and Howard Johnson hotels helps us continue to cater to increasing demand for global brands here in India. Our call centres and distribution systems are receiving excellent demand from the market and we believe that the key to our success here in India lies in the strategic relationships we have forged with our partners that we are looking to further deepen and expand,” he added.
