MARRIOTT International has opened the 11th Courtyard by Marriott hotel in India with the introduction of the Courtyard by Marriott, Bilaspur.
Bilaspur is a city within the central Indian state of Chhattisgarh, and joins other cities such as Mumbai, Chennai, Pune (TTG Asia e-Daily, August 26, 2013), Ahmedabad, Kochi and Bhopal that already boast of at least one Courtyard by Marriott property each.
Rajeev Menon, area vice president, South Asia, Marriott International, said: “In recognition of the growing popularity and potential of certain key markets in Central India, we decided to enter Bhopal with the Courtyard brand. Our entry now into Bilaspur is a continuation of that specific growth strategy. Central India has been growing and attracting business visitors in a big way and Bilaspur being the country’s largest power generating hub is a city that is rapidly growing and offering numerous business opportunities.
The new hotel offers 70 deluxe rooms, 30 superior rooms, two junior suites and four courtyard suites. F&B outlets in the hotel include the trademark MoMo Café, MoMo 2 Go for visitors on the move, MoMo 2 You for in-room dining and Bar Thirty Six for drinks.
On the meetings and events front, Courtyard by Marriott, Bilaspur has the only banquet space in the city with a pre-function area and largest indoor halls that can fit more than 1,000 pax.
Amit Midha, general manager, Courtyard by Marriott, Bilaspur, said: “Marriott’s entry into this dynamic and growing city is our attempt to offer visitors and guests a business hotel that offers smart and innovative hospitality, ensuring the right mix of services that would help guests maintain a good work balance and thrive during their stay.”
