Marriott plans more Fairfield openings in India

Fairfield By Marriott in Lucknow

Marriott International is planning to open six hotels across India by the end of this year. The group opened the 222-room Fairfield By Marriott in Lucknow earlier this week, and the business hotel brand will open another four by the end of the year. 

"We have two Fairfields in Bangalore and one more we opened today in Lucknow. We will add four more in Indore, Amritsar, Jodhpur, and Belgaum by the end of this year," Manish Tolani, area director of sales and marketing, South Asia for Marriott International, told the Economic Times.

Marriott, which has 33 hotels under various brands in the country, will also open Marriott Resorts in Jaisalmer and JW Marriott in Kolkata in 2016.
