AccorHotels is keen at expanding in Uttar Pradesh and is looking at expanding footprint in the state.
The French hospitality chain, which already operates hotel properties in Noida and Lucknow, is now eyeing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s parliamentary constituency of Varanasi to open its next hotel in Uttar Pradesh, which is the country’s most populous state.
Speaking to Business Standard, AccorHotels, chief Operating Officer (India and South Asia) Jean-Michel Cassé, said, “We are keen to having our next hotel in Varanasi and we are already on the lookout for suitable opportunities in this regard,”
Stating that the Indian hospitality sector had started to look up and the demand for quality hotel rooms was slowly picking up, he said, “Over the past 7-8 years, there had been some demand-supply mismatch in the domestic hotel industry with a bit of oversupply. Now, the sector is slowly getting its momentum back.”
