Marriott Hotels will soon add another Fairfield to the brand’s portfolio in India. Speaking on the sidelines of the launch of Courtyard by Marriott Agra, Rajeev Menon, area vice president, South Asia, Marriott Hotels India, informed, “The location for the next Fairfield to open is either Bengaluru or Lucknow. Work at both sites is in full swing and if the Bengaluru property opens first, it will be the second in that city.”

The Agra hotel is the 12th property of Courtyard by Marriott in India and will spearhead the 1000 milestone celebrations of the brand worldwide. Courtyard Walla Walla in Washington will be designated as the 1000th hotel. With this launch, Marriott is now present in the Golden Triangle with hotels in Delhi, Jaipur and Agra.

Commenting on his expectations from the upcoming Union Budget, Menon said, “Our wishlist is mainly of three requirements: Industry/ infrastructure status for hospitality, single window clearances for new projects and uniformity or rationality in taxation across different states.”
