With twelve Waldorf Astorias in the pipeline, India would be a desirable location.
The iconic Waldorf Astoria is on its way to India. Hilton Worldwide, the world’s second largest group of hotels with Waldorf as its ultra luxe brand, is looking at Delhi and Mumbai as the possible destination for it. The group has spoken to two big developers and will zero in on the best possible location for the project.
“We would love to have the Waldorf Astoria in India. It could be in either Delhi or Mumbai as a suitable market is needed to sustain it. These two cities are in the league of New York, London, Tokyo and Shanghai where the brand exists,” Hilton Worldwide VP (operations, India) Guy Hutchison told TOI on Wednesday.
