Big expansion plans for Marriott in China and India

Marriott China Hotel, GuangzhouAt the moment, Marriott International has some 25 hotels in China, but it’s been suggested by the chairman J.W. Marriott that that figure could rise to 100 in “five to six years”.   No longer is the company focussing on the big cities such as Beijing and Shanghai, but instead they’re looking to expand to the smaller cities such as Wuxi and Wuhan.   The company is also said to be planning to triple its number of hotels in India by 2010.
