Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 16 January 2009

Hilton has signed a long-term management agreement with property developer JMD Ltd., for a Doubletree by Hilton hotel in Gurgaon, India.

This not only marks the first Doubletree by Hilton development deal in India, it also marks the foray of JMD Ltd. into the hospitality business.

The 182-room, new-build Doubletree by Hilton Gurgaon is scheduled to open in 2010 in this fast-emerging commercial hub in the National Capital Region. Gurgaon is a prime investment destination for Information Technology and IT-enabled services and continues to develop what is becoming a leading commercial district during the next several months.

Martin Rinck, President Asia Pacific Hilton Hotels Corporation, said, “India’s hotel market has enormous potential, due to its low penetration and the combination of a growing trend for travel and increasing socio-economic development. We believe the contemporary and relaxed style of the upscale Doubletree by Hilton brand will prove to be popular with travellers in India and from abroad.”

The Doubletree by Hilton Gurgaon will be situated along a major highway, running through some of the prime and up-market areas of the district, which are home to several IT businesses. Amenities and services at the Doubletree by Hilton Gurgaon will include over 860 square meters of meeting space including a ballroom and a business centre featuring the latest technology to facilitate seamless business meetings and global communication. Guests will be able to relax and rejuvenate at the hotel’s Doubletree Fitness by Precor fitness centre, and its spa and swimming pool.

An all-day dining restaurant will serve an array of local Indian cuisine and international fare. The hotel will also have a lobby lounge and bar and a speciality restaurant.

In addition to being a major business travel destination, New Delhi has a host of historic and cultural tourist attractions including The Qutub Minar, The Red Fort, Jantar Mantar and Humayun’s Tomb. It is also the gateway to Agra (home of the Taj Mahal), Jaipur, Udaipur and other cities of Rajasthan.
