JW Marriott Hotel New Delhi Aerocity to Take Off in April 2013

According to news reports, despite the uncertainties related to clearances pending with the Civil Aviation Authorities in terms of New Delhi Aerocity hospitality projects, the management of the 523-room JW Marriott Hotel New Delhi Aerocity is optimistic about commencing operations from April this year. According to Balan Paravantavida, General Manager, JW Marriott Hotel New Delhi Aerocity, the property is slated to host a couple of big conferences and conventions in April and May and does not see “challenges” as far as operational clearances are concerned.

He said that the hotel will start operations with 300 guest rooms and all other facilities, except the Quan Spa, and the Japanese restaurant. While the 10,000-square-feet Quan Spa will be ready in May 2013, the two-level Japanese restaurant by Akira Back, Celebrity Chef from Las Vegas, will become operational from mid-July. Along with 300 guest rooms, initially the hotel will open the 300-seat all-day dining restaurant – K3; a patisserie – The Delhi Baking Company (DBC); Oval Bar; Lobby Lounge; Executive Lounge and Club Lounge; 12,000-square-feet ball room, and all the meeting rooms; among others, he said. The rest of the guest rooms will be ready by May. The hotel has plans to add a night club and one more restaurant at a later stage.

Balan said that the hotel will be targeting primarily the Meetings, Incentives, Conventions/Conferences, Exhibitions (MICE) traffic followed by Free Individual Travellers (FIT) and leisure. “We are just ten minutes from the international and domestic terminal, one of the largest convention space in the NCR, eight breakout rooms, business centres, separate entrance and exist from the ball room, lavish F&B offerings, etc. We already have big MICE groups booking in the last week of April and in May from the USA. We will be targeting the USA, Europe, Japanese and Korean markets,” he said.

Aerocity hospitality district is destined to change the face of Indian hospitality, according to Balan. With 5,500 additional hotel rooms across 11 hotel projects and 5,000 pax convention centre in the pipeline, the Aerocity itself will become a “huge destination” in itself. “We will be able to compete with destinations like Bangkok, Hong Kong, Singapore, etc. with the completion of the ongoing projects,” he said.

Developed by Aria Hotels & Consultancy Services, a subsidiary of Asian Hotels (West) Ltd., JW Marriott New Delhi Aerocity is the fourth JW Marriott branded hotel to become operational in India, and the second in North India. One of the premium brands of Marriott International, JW Marriott has presence in Chandigarh, Mumbai, and Bengaluru currently.
