NEW DELHI: Hospitality chain Lemon Tree Hotel Company is planning to add up to 15 hotels with over 1,200 rooms across India by the end of next fiscal.
The company, which has 40 hotels with 4,300 rooms in 24 cities across the country, is looking at Siliguri, Mumbai, Patna, Amritsar, Gangtok, Jammu, Lucknow, Kolkata and Coimbatore for its new properties.
“We plan to open up to 15 hotels across India by the end of next fiscal year as part of our expansion plans. This would add over 1,200 rooms to our present room inventory,” Company President Vikramjit Singh said.
When asked about the investment for the expansion, Singh did not share details saying these hotels would be a mix of company-owned and managed properties.
