According to Bloomberg, IHG plans to add 46 new hotels over three to five years in India. "The chain is among operators including Wyndham Hotel Group and STarwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. looking to tap the $1.9 trillion economy, even as an oversupply of rooms has depressed room rates for the last three years," the article reports.
