Hilton to re-establish presence in India with 50 hotels by 2015

Left with not a single property in the country until as recently as October 2009 – after the end of its tie-up with The Oberoi Group in 2008 – Hilton Worldwide is back in the Indian market with a fairly big agenda.

"The target of 50 hotels by 2015 does not look difficult and we stand by it," says Martin Rinck, president of Asia-Pacific, Hilton Worldwide. "We are talking about six brands for the Indian market, out of the 10 brands Hilton has globally. These brands include Hilton, DoubleTree, Garden Inn, Hampton, Conrad and Waldorf Astoria,"  he adds.
