JW Marriott plans 40 hotels in India by 2013

Executives at the JW Marriott offices are busy planning the future. First came the announcement that JW Marriott plans to double its hotel presence in Europe by 2015, and now the hotel group plans to add another 40 hotels in India by 2013.

So, just where does the luxury hotel brand plan to put all of these hotels?

“We will be opening five JW Marriott hotels in Chennai, Bangalore, Pune (two) and Chandigarh by this year-end,” JW Marriott Group’s Area Vice-President for India, Malaysia and Pakistan, Rajeev Menon told the Press Trust of India. Additionally, Menon said Marriott plans to open two Marriott Courtyard hotels in Ahmedabad and Mumbai.

With new hotels means new jobs, and according to Menon, the JW Marriott will be helping to boost the employment market by hiring an additional 3,000 workers to service the additional 10,000-plus rooms the Marriott company plans to open in the next few years.

The JW Marriott India properties will feature all the luxury amenities customers are used to including spas, fitness centers, on-site restaurants and bars, swimming pools and in some cases, private night clubs.
