Carlson Rezidor has opened the Radisson Blu Hotel Nagpur in India; the first Radisson Blu hotel to be established in Nagpur, the largest city in central India and it is Carlson Rezidor’s 53rd hotel in India.
“Carlson Rezidor has been operating in India for 14 years and it has been growing from strength to strength in this emerging economy. By 2015, we will have 100 operating hotels in India which reinforces our position as the largest international hotel operator in India based on the number of hotels. Our success in this market is in part due to the strong relationship that we have with hotel owners. We have just signed a strategic partnership with Bestech Hospitalities to develop our Park Inn by Radisson brand in north and central India, and the newly opened Radisson Blu Hotel Nagpur will be the fifth property that we are managing for Bestech,” said Simon C. Barlow, president, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, Asia Pacific.
