Marriott Hotels enters Agra, to add to Fairfield portfolio in India soon

Marriott Hotels will soon add another Fairfield to the brand’s portfolio in India. Speaking on the sidelines of the launch of Courtyard by Marriott Agra, Rajeev Menon, chief operations officer (COO) for Marriott International in South-East Asia & Pacific, informed, “The location for the next Fairfield to open is either Bengaluru or Lucknow.

Work at both sites is in full swing and if the Bengaluru property opens first, it will be the second in that city.” The Agra hotel is the 12th property of Courtyard by Marriott in India and will spearhead the 1000 milestone celebrations of the brand worldwide. Courtyard Walla Walla in Washington will be designated as the 1000th hotel. With this launch, Marriott is now present in the Golden Triangle with hotels in Delhi, Jaipur and Agra. Strategically located five minutes away from the iconic Taj Mahal on the Fatehabad Road, Courtyard by Marriott Agra is a 189 rooms hotel. Vishal Bharti, general manager of the property said, “We want to position this hotel among the top three hotels in the city. We have the right combination of people and service and the Marriott standards to attract weekend travellers from nearby cities.”
