Posted on Saturday 05 March 2011
Those who are members of Hilton Hotels & Resorts' loyalty program will be able to build and redeem their points in Chennai, now that the group has announced that it will be opening a new property in the Indian city.
Chennai is a major hub for business travel, and is also a popular destination for leisure travelers who want to fly domestic on holiday. The new location is part of the hotel company's effort to expand its presence in India.
"We plan to open another six properties in India this year, which will more than double our trading estate for 2011. The opening of Hilton Chennai marks another milestone in our growth plan," Martin Rinck of Hilton Worldwide said in a statement. "With three other operating hotels, Hilton New Delhi Janakpuri, Hilton Garden Inn New Delhi Saket and Hilton Mumbai International Airport, which opened in January, we are steadily expanding our footprint in the key cities of India."
The new property will feature more than 200 rooms, as well as 7,000 square-feet of space for private functions and business events.
