Mid-Level Travellers to India to Have More Accommodation Picks

Yet another global hotel brand is looking towards India for expanding its operations. This time it is the US-based Wyndham Hotel Group that has decided to invest in the country that has been seeing a massive rise in the investment by foreign hospitality chains, brining cheer to foreigners taking flights tickets to India who up till now complained of lack of quality guest rooms.

Wyndham Group has announced plans to set up 70 properties in India by 2016 under different brand names. The chain is looking to target the mid and mid-premium market, offering quality options to travellers who seek rather cheap flights tickets for a travel to India.

The US-based company already operates in the country under brands like Ramada, Wyndham, Days Inn and Ramada Plaza. Now, the firm hopes to bring in the well-known brands like Howard Johnson and Hawthorn Suits to the country, allowing foreigners taking tickets on India flights to seek refuge in a familiar abode! As per sources, the first property under the Howard Johnson will be established in Bangalore, a popular city in southern part of the nation. It will come up by next year. The hotel will be looking to cater to foreign tourists who are not the ‘spendthrift’ kinds and are the ones who look for cheap deals for tickets on India bound flights.

In the first phase, 22 properties will come up in cities like Mumbai, Tirupati, Lucknow and Bhubaneswar.
