Marriott Group launches JW Marriott Chandigarh
The Marriott Group of Hotels has launched its 5-star hotel in Chandigarh. This world class luxury hospitality chain, which has hotels in major cities and exclusive vacation destinations world-wide, has chosen a highly strategic location for this venture. JW Marriott Chandigarh, which features 165 guest rooms and suites, including four suites and a presidential suite, is within close proximity to the Chandigarh airport and the railway station. It is also immediately accessible from Chandigarh’s business district of Sector 17 and the Information Technology Park.
“There has been a serious dearth of branded 5 star hotels in Chandigarh,” says Harpal Singh, Managing Director, Lok Priya Buildwell, which owns the new hotel. “So far, only the Taj and the Government-owned Mountview have been catering to the demand of upper-crust hospitality in the city. JW Marriott is the first luxury hotel in Chandigarh as well as North India, and it will cater to both leisure and business travellers.”
The JW Marriott Group enlisted the expertise of the Project & Development Services agency of international property consultants Jones Lang LaSalle India in establishing what is Chandigarh’s first luxury 5 star hotel. "We are honored to have been appointed as exclusive service providers for this prestigious project," says Gagan Singh, CEO – Projects & Development Services, Jones Lang LaSalle India. "This was an end-to-end services mandate which included design management, contract procurement, vendors and consultants management, schedule and cost Management, billing, management of all aspects of construction activities and landscaping. We are extremely satisfied with the results."
Chandigarh, India’s pioneering planned city with world-class infrastructure, is considered a gateway city because it provides easy access to key tourist destinations of North India. It is known internationally for its excellent architecture and urban planning, and tops the list of Indian States and Union Territories with the highest per capita income in the country. With its luxury design and amenities, including multiple fine dining restaurants, JW Marriott Chandigarh is perfectly poised to cater to the demands of a highly exclusive traveller segment.
