Marriott International announced on Monday that it has signed an agreement with the BeeKay Group to bring five new hotels to Jharkhand and West Bengal. The agreement, which is scheduled to open between 2024 and 2026, is expected to add more than 700 rooms to Marriott International’s existing portfolio in the country.
Marriott’s Le Méridien brand will make its East India debut with the opening of Le Méridien Ranchi. Courtyard by Marriott Asansol, Fairfield by Marriott Maithon, Fairfield by Marriott Ranchi, and Fairfield by Marriott Deoghar are also set to open.
“We are thrilled to be working with the Beekay Group again to bring five new hotels to Jharkhand and West Bengal,” said Rajeev Menon, Marriott International’s President Asia Pacific (excluding Greater China).
With the signing of this multi-agreement, the hotel chain hopes to urbanise and enter emerging business locations in some of the East’s most commercially and culturally important cities, he said.
This strategic collaboration in the state includes properties spanning its premium lifestyle segment to select service brands, allowing us to better cater to the needs of our guests while strengthening the American hotel chain’s presence in India, according to Menon.
