Seeing India as a key strategic growth market, Hilton Worldwide plans to expand the network of its brand hotels in the country to 18 by the end of next year.
One of the proposed hotels will be opened near Amber in Jaipur which will be the second property of the group in the city.
"It will be a mid-market brand Hilton Garden Inn," Daniel Welk, vice president of operations for India told PTI.
He said the group has opened four hotels, one each in Kerala and Jaipur and two in Bangalore, in the country in the past eight months and plans to take the total number of the hotels to 18 by the end of 2015.
Daniel informed that the group's first luxury brand hotel will come up in Pune next year and one of the hotels was also planned in Agra.
"India, as a continuously growing and evolving market, offers enormous opportunities. The metropolitan cities have the capacity to absorb a larger inventory and aggressive economic growth in other regions and cities make these markets even more important.
"Therefore we are increasing footprint through multi-brand and multiple-partner strategy in India," he said during his recent visit to the city.
