American hospitality major Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide will add 15 new hotels in India by 2013.
This is in addition to the existing 26 hotels in India, the prominent ones being Le Meridien, Sheraton and the Luxury Collection.
“India is a key focus of our expansion efforts, because it is a market that today is relatively under-hoteled. We are extremely bullish about the future here and we see a lot of growth for the next 20 years,” said Frits van Paasschen, president & CEO Starwood Hotels.
He said the company would introduce new brands apart from significantly adding hotels under the brands Four Points by Sheraton, Westin and Aloft.
