Carlson Hotels Worldwide has revealed details of its expansion plans in India for the next three years. These plans, which are well underway, will see the group add 50 properties by the end of 2012 across four brands Radisson Hotels & Resorts, Country Inns & Suites, Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts and Park Inn.

We are optimistic about India and its growth prospects as a leading emerging economy, said Hubert Joly, president and CEO of Carlson, speaking at the Hotel Investment Forum India, in Mumbai on Wednesday. To be the number one international hotel operator here is particularly pleasing.

Carlsons presence and growth in India entail all of its brands:

- The Regent Gurgaon is scheduled to open in 2013.

- Radisson currently has 10 properties in India, with another 25 scheduled to open within the next 36 months.

- Country Inns & Suites has nine hotels in operation with another 15 scheduled to open within the same time frame.

- Park Plaza currently has six properties open, with another eight under development and these are also scheduled to open within the next 36 months.

- There are now three Park Inns in operation in India Park Inn Gurgaon, Park Inn Jaipur Singh Highway and Park Inn Phoenix Resort in Goa. Another two are under development, one in Delhi CBD Shahdara and another in Bangalore.

We are very proud of what we have achieved in India to date, added Mr. Joly. I want to acknowledge the leadership of K.B. Kachru, executive vice president of Carlson Hotels for South Asia, as well as the collaboration with our partners in India, especially RHW Hotel Management Services, Country Development and Management Services, and Sarovar. Without them this level of success would not have been possible. Looking ahead, we will continue to push the development of our brands and the standards that we deliver to our guests.
