Signed as a management agreement in partnership with NR Greenwood Construction Ltd, the hotel is expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2023. The chain said the hotel is expected to benefit from the ‘strong demand’ for extended stay branded hospitality options in the city, from domestic as well as international corporate travel segments.
Staybridge Suites is IHG’s upscale extended stay hotel brand which offers amenities such as a fully equipped kitchen in suites, outdoor space, daily complimentary breakfast and an evening social event three nights a week.
IHG said Staybridge Suites Bengaluru Thanisandra will offer a ‘residential-style’ hotel experience with 170 suites featuring kitchenettes and will be designed for multi-night business and leisure travelers. Additionally, the hotel will feature two meeting rooms, a 300 sqm dining room, and will provide facilities such as a business centre and a gym.
Sudeep Jain, managing director, South West Asia, IHG, said: “We are delighted to expand our portfolio in the country and introduce our global long stay brand, Staybridge Suites, to the Indian market. The thriving corporate sector in Bengaluru and limited hospitality options for long stay travelers presents strong prospects for the success of the new hotel and will also pave the way for brand’s expansion in other cities.”
C Sridhar, managing director of NR Greenwood Construction said with the signing, the company is pleased to venture into the Indian hotels sector. “Bengaluru is the most sought-after destination in the corporate and IT landscape in India, and is therefore a perfect fit for a brand like Staybridge Suites. We are confident that the hotel will be well-received by the guests upon its opening in early 2023.”
