Haryana to Provide succour to Delhi Hotel shortage!

Haryana government has promised to come to the rescue of Delhi government by promising to add a substantial number of hotel rooms for next year's Commonwealth Games 2010.
According to Haryana Chief Minister, Bhupinder Singh Hooda, about 6,000 hotels in Delhi will be ready by the time Delhi plays host to the prestigious event, rated as the second largest sporting event after the Olympics. Now how is Hooda going to make sure that the Hotel rooms are going materialize is another topic.
Delhi is facing an acute shortage of hotel rooms and the occupancy rates in local Delhi hotels are quite high.
The Commonwealth Organising Committee expects that nearly 100,000 spectators will visit Delhi when the event is held in December next year.

The federal Tourism Ministry has estimates that Delhi will require at least 30,000 hotels rooms to accommodate the visiting spectators for the 2010 commonwealth games, while Delhi at present has just about 14,000 hotel rooms.
Haryana government's offer to add 6,000 hotel rooms for the event has thus come as a welcome respite by both the Delhi government and the Commonwealth Organising Committee.
According to Hooda, the decision to add additional hotel rooms is part of his government's plans to encourage tourism in the state. The majority of the hotel rooms will be added in Gurgaon and some in Faridabad.
However, the situation is still far from comfortable. The Sheila Dikshit government in Delhi has already started listing private homes under a bed and breakfast in Delhi scheme to make up for the expected paucity of rooms in the city.

How they are going to make sure that the 6,000 promised rooms are there is anybody’s guess? Property in Delhi being so expensive that you will be hard pressed to acquire land without substantial investment is a big stumbling block.

Let’s see what the future holds for Delhi?

Delhi Airport Hotel has experienced a significant growth in becoming a popular destination amongst British tourists, and recession is to take the credit.

According to Opodo.co.uk, an online travel service, flights from Britain to the Indian capital were up by as much as 165 per cent.

The reason was accorded to holidaymakers' preference for a long-haul travel in place of short city breaks against the weakening pound.

Other destinations to have felt the increased bookings were Melbourne with 400 per cent, and Singapore with 219 per cent.

The agressive campaigns by the Delhi Government to make the New Delhi Homestay concept more popular among tourists is another factor.

Hopefully this trend will continue and the increasing number of tourists will give more business to this flegding industry.

Caroline Noble, Opodo UK country director, revealed the booking patterns were a sign that vacationers were dumping cities for one longer holiday outside the country.

A 5 star Delhi Hotel, The Radisson Delhi, promoted by A B group, is investing around Rs 800 crore over the next four years for opening eight more hotels in the country under the brands of Radisson, Park Plaza and Country Inn.

"We are currently operating two of the Radisson hotels in India in Delhi and Varanasi. We have now plans for eight new hotels under Carlson Group's Radisson, Park Plaza and Country Inn brands at an investment of Rs 800 crore," Radisson Hotel Delhi Managing Director R Kapur told PTI.

He said the new hotels would come up at Bhubaneshwar, Chilka Lake, Hyderabad, Konark, Puri, Paradip, Vishakhapatnam, and Kakinada and the investment would come from the company's internal accrual and debt.

"We have currently an inventory of 400 rooms in our two existing hotels. With the new hotels in place, our inventory would reach a figure of 1,000," Kapur added.

The hotels at Bhubaneshwar, Hyderabad and Kakinada would come under the Radisson brand (5-star) and the other five would be of Park Plaza (mid-premium) and Country Inn (mid-economy) brands.

The company is also undertaking a Rs 100-crore renovation of the existing Radisson in Delhi and repositioning it in the 5-star deluxe segment as 'Radisson Plaza'.

This means that other Delhi Hotels will have a tough time to attract customers. With The Radisson brand going from strength to strength, it won't be long before they have covered the whole of India under their belt.
