Global hospitality chain Carlson on Sunday said it has opened a new luxury Radisson Hotel in Indore, taking the number of properties it operates in the country to 30.
Carlson opened its 30th property, Radisson Hotel, with 201 rooms, at Indore in Madhya Pradesh.
Carlson tied up with real estate developer Bestech Group for building the hotel, while the US-based hospitality chain will operate it.
The Radisson Hotel Indore is one of four projects Carlson is partnering on with Bestech in the country. Carlson currently manages the Radisson Suites Gurgaon and Park Plaza Noida and will also manage the Radisson Hotel Nagpur, which is scheduled to open in the first half of 2011.
"This hotel opening marks Carlson's accelerated growth in India as part of our Ambition 2015 global growth strategy to expand our portfolio by at least 50 per cent by 2015 to more than 1,500 hotels in operation," Carlson Hotels (South Asia) Executive Vice-President KB Kachru told PTI.
"This is also the 12th Radisson hotel operating in India. With over 40 Radisson hotels under development throughout the Asia-Pacific, Radisson is the number one, fastest growing upscale brand in the region," Kachru added.
Earlier this year, the company announced its plans to add 50 properties in India by the end of 2012 across four brands - Radisson Hotels & Resorts, Country Inns & Suites, Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts and Park Inn.
Carlson Hotel Worldwide is a leading global hotel company, with more than 1,060 properties and a presence in 77 countries.
