With the opening of this hotel, Hilton Worldwide will operate 10 hotels in India. Following on from a great year of growth in 2011, when we opened six hotels, we are expanding rapidly in India and anticipate increasing our presence to 14 hotels by the end of this year".

Rob Palleschi, global head, Doubletree by Hilton, added: "With this launch, we will be well on our way to achieving our target of increasing our network to 25 hotels in the country by 2016. We have two hotels in Delhi NCR, at Gurgaon and Mayur Vihar, and we will open an all-suite, extended-stay hotel in Bangalore in the last quarter of the year".
