| Business at the newly-reopened Trident and Taj hotels is steadily picking up with the Ratan Tata-owned Taj clocking a 56 per cent occupancy on the very first day itself.
The 550-room Trident registered an occupancy rate of over 16 per cent for the same period.
Both the hotels reopened on Sunday, nearly three weeks after they were ravaged by the deadly terror strikes on November 26.
Trident, Nariman Point had clocked an occupancy rate of over 16 per cent, with 90-odd rooms being checked into by the end of the first day, an Oberoi Group spokesperson told PTI hereon Monday.
"Occupancy on the second day is expected to be between 80-100," the spokesperson added.
The iconic Taj, which threw open its tower wing yesterday, has comperatively more occupants with nearly half of its rooms booked.
"On the first day, the Taj had an occupancy rate of 56 per cent, with 150 of the 268 rooms being checked into," a Taj spokesperson said.
Trident is, however, receiving a better response as far as Christmas bookings are concerned. "(Advance) Christmas bookings are already at between 15-20 per cent on a standalone basis," the hotel spokesperson said.
The Oberoi Group hotel had said it expects its occupancy rates to fall by about 30 per cent following the November 26 audacious strikes.
"As per our rough estimates, it looks like there would be a 30 per cent reduction in our hotel's occupancy," Trident Hotel president Rattan Keswani had said on Saturday.
