The Madhya Pradesh government, which is promoting tourism in a big way, is planning three more five star hotels in Bhopal. At present, the city has just only one such hotel.
According to Madhya Pradesh tourism commissioner and secretary Hari Ranjan Rao, “there is a dearth of good hotels in Bhopal. We expect at least three 5-star hotels in the state capital.”
Quoting sources, a TOI report said while the historic Minto Hall — which once housed the Vidhan Sabha — is being converted into one of these luxury hotels, the familiar Hotel Lake View Ashok is getting an upgrade from three stars to five. The location for the third hotel is the picturesque Kotra Sultanabad area near MANIT.
The Madhya Pradesh State Tourism Development Corporation (MPSTDC) is setting up all three on Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode. Two of the locations — Minto Hall and Kotra Sultanabad — have been bid out to private parties, added the report.
