Having launched its premium business hotel, Courtyard by Marriott in Ahmedabad, leading hospitality player Marriott International Inc. is now looking at opening seven more hotels across the country in luxury, boutique and moderate segments. Marriott International, which runs hotels brands including The Ritz -Carlton, JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Renaissance Hotels & Resorts and Courtyard by Marriott, opened its 10th hotel and fifth Courtyard by Marriott hotel in India.

Talking about the company's plans, Rajeev Menon, area vice president, India, Malaysia, Maldives & Pakistan, Marriott Hotels India Pvt Ltd said, "With the launch of Courtyard by Marriott in Ahmedabad, we have now 10 hotels in India. Also, there are 30 more hotels being developed across the country. Of these, seven will be opened in 2010 including three JW Marriott in Bangalore, Chennai and Chandigarh, one Marriott in Pune, one Renaissance in Bangalore and two Courtyard by Marriott in Pune and Mumbai."

The hospitality player has forayed into Gujarat with Courtyard by Marriott through a partnership with real estate developer, Pacifica Companies. In India, the company manages around 2,500 rooms while "over 6,000 more are under construction".

According to Menon, Courtyard by Marriott, Ahmedabad features a choice of accommodation of 130 deluxe rooms, 22 executive deluxe rooms and 12 courtyard suites for business and leisure travelers alike.
