As Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar’s business and industry landscape expands, the twin cities’ five-star hotel basket is set to get three new properties as major hospitality brands like the IHCL Group and Marriott International sign up for more properties here.
The new properties are expected to add 450-500 more keys to the existing 5,500+ room inventory in the two cities.
American hospitality major Marriott International is in talks for signing a new property deal at Adani Shantigram campus along SG Road in Ahmedabad. Sources privy to the development confirmed the property is expected to be run under Marriott’s classic luxury brand – JW Marriott Hotels. ‘Property likely to be operational after five years’
The 275-room property is likely to be operational after five years, i.e., by 2028. The company, which operates about 30 brands internationally, has aggressively expanded in Gujarat over the past five years, with another property under its classic premium brand, Sheraton, expected to come up along SP Ring Road.
Recently, Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL) signed a Taj branded resort and spa in Gandhinagar. The 118-room resort is slated to open early in 2023.
IHCL Group recently inaugurated Vivanta by Taj after having taken over an existing property along SG Road in Ahmedabad. The group already has four more hotels under development in the state.
Since Covid year of 2020, at least four new hotel properties were launched in Ahmedabad, including Taj Skyline along Sindhu Bhavan Road (SBR), ITC Narmada, Courtyard by Marriott SBR and Leela in Gandhinagar, adding nearly 700 room keys to the existing inventory.
