AccorHotels to grow in Kochi and Sriperumbudur

Jean-Michel Casse, Chief Operating Officer India and South Asia, AccorHotels 2In India, AccorHotels has a network of 46 hotels spanning across nine international brands in 22 cities. According to Jean-Michel Cassé, Chief Operating Officer, India and South Asia, AccorHotels, “Mid-segment hotels form a larger percentage of the total room inventory, also accounting for nearly 50 percent of all the hotel rooms in the country. In this segment, we see a significant demand and supply gap, which we seek to bridge with our Novotel and ibis brands. We see this growing demand as a potential growth engine for the future. Our recent openings in Lucknow, Dwarka, Chennai OMR, Pune and Goa along with upcoming openings in Kochi and Sriperumbudur further highlight our focus to cater to the needs of a diversified growing base of business and leisure travellers alike.”
