Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, a global hotel management company previously known as Rezidor SAS, intends to open 38 new hotels in India as part of its strategy to have 100 hotels in the country by 2015.

The hospitality group has four hospitality brands in India – Radisson Blu, Park Plaza, Country Inns & Suites by Carlson and Park Inn by Radisson – which cater from mid-scale to premium segments.

"We hope to further establish our presence and extend our network of hotels to locations where our customers want to be, in major gateway cities and up-and-coming leisure destinations."

The chain currently operates 62 hotels in the country and has more than 14,000 employees.

As part of the expansion, the company plans to hire around 9,000 people.

The expansion is slated to take place primarily in metros, state capitals, religious centres and leisure destinations.

Carlson Rezidor expects to operate an equal number of hotels under the franchise as well as management contract models.

Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group South Asia executive vice president KB Kachru said the group is developing over 5,000 rooms under the expansion programme.

"We are fortunate to have brands catering to a wide range of market segments…. We hope to further establish our presence and extend our network of hotels to locations where our customers want to be, in major gateway cities and up-and-coming leisure destinations," Kachru added.

"Globally, we have six brands, of which all are represented in India except Hotel Missoni. We will keep exploring opportunities to establish Hotel Missoni in India. However, it has to be the right fit for the brand in terms of product and location."

The Carlson Rezidor portfolio includes more than 1,300 hotels, with a global footprint across 83 countries and territories.
