InterGlobe Hotels in partnership with AccorHotels has announced the launch of the economy brand with the opening of ibis Kolkata Rajarhat. The hotel features a 2,457 sq. ft pillar less meeting space which can further be divided to three smaller rooms with capacity for up to 250 guests, one of the largest MICE banquet spaces for an ibis.
The hotel will also feature a revamped food offering at Spice It, serving home-style international comfort food and regional cuisines. As with all ibis hotels, it will serve India’s longest-running breakfast, starting from 4 am until noon.
Commenting on this occasion, J.B. Singh, President & CEO, InterGlobe Hotels, says, “We are thrilled to mark our presence in this city with ibis Kolkata Rajarhat, the first internationally branded economy hotel in Kolkata. Developed with an investment of INR 120 crores, ibis Kolkata will have 189 keys, taking the ibis brand to 19 hotels across 13 cities with over 3,000 rooms. Kolkata as a destination has seen a large influx of travelers for business and leisure. Strategically placed near the airport, IT parks and multiple malls, ibis Kolkata Rajarhat will cater to the emerging IT and ITES hub. The manner in which the city has endured persistently is not only demonstrative of its strength and resilience, but also indicates its potential going forth.”
Jean-Michel Cassé, Chief Operating Officer, India & South Asia, AccorHotels, says, “The ibis brand and hotels in India have been successful in integrating into the hearts of Indians and our partnership with InterGlobe Hotels has been integral to this success. Last year we launched ibism, a campaign curated especially for guests and employees and now with the launch of ibis Kolkata Rajarhat, we start a new revolution in the space of in-demand economy hotels. At AccorHotels, we strive to make our guests ‘Feel Connected’ and ibis Kolkata Rajarhat rightly echoes this sentiment.”
