Hotel company plans Indian expansion

InterContinental is planning to add a further 45 hotels to its Indian portfolio by 2015. The additional properties will mean the group will offer more than 10,000 rooms to those taking flights to India.

Introduction of the Holiday Inn Express brand will increase the number of low-cost hotel rooms on offer to travellers and will met the demand for affordable accommodation within the country. It is expected that India-based Amrapali Group will manage a number of the new hotels.

Anil Kumar Sharma, chairman and managing director of the Amrapali Group, said: "India's need for world-class hotels consistent with rapid economic growth make this an opportune time for us to expand our hospitality portfolio."

He added that the Holiday Inn Express was a key brand and would offer a "mix of convenience, comfort and value".
