PTI Mumbai | Updated on March 12, 2018

Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, the largest international hotel operator in India, plans to open 13 hotels in the country this year, a top official said.

“India is a priority for us. We have more hotels here than in China,” Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group President-Asia Pacific Simon C Barlow said in a statement here.

Carlson Rezidor plans to increase the number of hotels it operates in India to 100 by 2015, up from 63 now of which 13 will be this year, he said.

Carlson operates hotels under brands such as Radisson, Park Plaza and Park Inn through management and franchise route. Last year, the hotel company signed a strategic partnership with Gurgaon-based real estate firm Bestech Group to open 49 Park Inn hotels by 2024.

The deal involved Carlson investing Rs 230 crore for the first two hotels in Gurgaon and Mohali.

“We are looking to put in seed funding to create an investment vehicle that will build multiple hotels for the Southern, Western and Eastern regions, and strike strategic alliances with partners, just as we did for the North and Central regions,” Barlow said.
