India is set to welcome a number of Holiday Inn Express hotels as part of a new deal.
According to the new partnership, the hotels will be developed over the next three to five years and could provide accommodation for those planning to take flights to India.
The hotels will be based in Nodia, Indore Pithampur, Jaipur Hitech City, Kochi and Patna.
Anil Kumar Sharma, chairman and managing director of 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.”
IHG currently manages 12 hotels in India and is planning to more-than double this number within the next five years.
The company has more than 4,500 hotels in over 100 countries and operates under seven different brands – InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suite.
