International hotel chain Marriott is planning to add 24 luxury hotels comprising about 7,000 rooms by 2011 in the country as it looks to tap the booming hospitality sector.

“The country’s hospitality sector has been growing very fast, mainly due to government’s encouragement for the tourism sector. To cash in on the growth story, we will be opening 24 new hotels across the country by 2011 with an addition of about 7,000 rooms,” Marriott International Regional Vice President (Hotel Development – Indian Subcontinent) Navjit Ahluwalia said.

Marriott would have 15 hotels by the the end of 2009, he added. The company has already tied up with different developers for the hotels in various locations and all the projects are under construction, he said.
