AccorHotels is planning on adding close to 550 rooms in eastern India, as the company expands its presence in Guwahati and Kolkata, reports Tasmayee Laharoy. The expansion is likely to take place over the next three years. To start with, Novotel, a sub-brand of the company, will debut its first property in Guwahati. Targeting a mid-year launch, the property is likely to have 122 rooms. This would be followed by IBIS and Formule1 in Kolkata by 2018. Accor is likely to launch sub-brands IBIS and Formule1 in Kolkata, adding to the 500 rooms in the city. The entry of these brands will add another 316 keys to the city.
