Marriott International has opened its mid-level Fairfield hotel in Bangalore, India for business and leisure travellers who make use of their flights tickets and land in the IT city. This is the company’s first Fairfield property in Asia.
Holiday makers who often fret about the quality of mid-level hotel rooms in India have a reason to cheer. US-based hospitality chain Marriott International has opened its Fairfield brand hotel in Bangalore, India’s leading IT hub that is as popular with tourists as with professionals and businessmen. The property is aimed at catering to budget-conscious business and leisure travellers who book air tickets on flights to the city and seek accommodation in the moderate tier segment.
This is the first Fairfield property in Asia. The midscale brand is hugely popular in North America, with over 700 properties in the US, Canada and Mexico.
The Bangalore (Bengaluru) hotel features around 150 guestrooms and is likely to emerge as a preferred choice for middle-class customers, both locals and overseas tourists who invest on flights’ tickets and land in this part of India to further their business or recreational concerns.
The suites are priced attractively and are sure to appeal to even the locals who book travel tickets and board Bangalore flights from different parts of India like Delhi or Mumbai.
Further, the hotel has an on-site restaurant that serves both Indian and Western food, keeping in mind the need of a diverse clientele. Corporate travellers will take a fancy to the well-designed conference and banqueting space. There is also a business centre, fitness centre and a rooftop swimming pool, to make sure that all sorts of locals and foreigners grabbing tickets on Bangalore headed flights are well catered to.
As part of its growth in Asia, Marriott plans to establish 11 more Fairfield properties across India, Nepal and Indonesia. There are also reports that the company will soon be introducing its luxury Ritz Carlton brand to India to serve the big spenders who get hold of flights tickets for flying into the country.
