HILTON Worldwide will open its second hotel in Jaipur under its mid-market brand Garden Inn, following the launch of the 179-key Hilton Hotels & Resorts Jaipur in May this year.
The hotel chain has signed an agreement with real estate developer Goverdhandham Estate for the 125-room greenfield project, and is expected to be operational by end-2015, said Daniel Welk, vice-president, operations-India, Hilton Worldwide.
India features prominently in the group’s expansion plans, where it has 13 properties operational with five more to come by 2015, including the first Conrad hotel and a DoubleTree in Agra.
This year alone, Hilton added DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Bangalore and Hilton Bangalore Embassy GolfLinks.
Hilton currently has four out of its 11 brands in India, but aims to introduce its other luxury brand, Waldorf Astoria.
"We are talking to a number of partners to introduce some of our other brands in India," added Welk.
