Mumbai, September 18, 2013: THE existing oversupply of rooms in major Indian cities has not deterred major hospitality brands from continuing to make plans for more hotels in the country.

Vikramjit Singh Oberoi, COO, The Oberoi Group, said: "I think there's a great opportunity in the domestic market in Iindia. However, there have been some positive changes in visa policy, and if that continues, I think we would see a significant increase in inbound numbers. I think the overseas traveller to India is still very important for the luxury segment."

Oberoi recently opened the 323-room Trident, Hyderabad and will launch a hotel in Bhopal in 2015, reopen the Oberoi Mount Everest in Darjeeling, and debut the 350-key Trident, Kolkata.

Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, which operates the largest number of hotels in India among all international hospitality companies in the market, has 64 properties in operation, 31 of which opened over the last two years (TTG Asia e-Daily, January 15, 2013).

The group is considering destinations such as Karimnagar, Vijayawada, Visakhapatnam, Tirupati and Warangal in Andhra Pradesh for 13 new projects to come up by 2014.

Said Simon Barlow, president Asia-Pacific: "Carlson Rezidor will spend the next five years focusing primarily on its newly re-engineered Park Inn by Radisson brand." The first four Park Inn hotels are under development.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts currently operates 50 hotels in India and aims to have 100 hotels in India and South Asia under operation, development and management by 2015. Eight out of nine Starwood brands are present in India.

The hotel operator will open Le Méridien hotels in Bengaluru, Jaipur, Kerala, Delhi NCR; Sheraton hotels in Greater Noida and Bengaluru; a St Regis property in Delhi NCR; and W Hotels in Goa, Mumbai, Noida and Gurgaon. – TTG Asia
