MUMBAI, INDIA—JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts is continuing to grow its portfolio in India with the opening of two new hotels in Bengaluru and New Delhi within weeks of each other. These hotels will be JW Marriott brand’s fourth and fifth hotels in India.

JW Marriott Bengaluru, which opened last September, offers 297 guestrooms and suites, including one Presidential Suite, and features a collection of Indian artwork curated by Geetu Hinduja, director of The Fine Art Company, an art consultancy located in Mumbai.
Overlooking the 300-acre Cubbon Park, the hotel includes the Spa by JW, offering six different treatment rooms, a heated outdoor pool, Pool Bar and cabanas, and fitness center and yoga studio. JW Marriott Bengaluru features more than 10,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor event space.
Offering 523 guestrooms including a Presidential Suite, JW Marriott Hotel New Delhi Aerocity debuted on October 18. Upon arrival, guests will be greeted with a lobby installation comprised of numerous glass tubes from commissioned artist Nikolas Weinstein Studio. The hotel also offers six restaurants and lounges and the Quan Spa.
“The brand resonates with both our international and domestic guests, and we will continue to strive for excellence across our portfolio as India continues to play an important role in our growth strategy,” stated Rajeev Menon Marriott International's Area VP for South Asia & Australia.
