A second JW Marriott hotel is planned by Marriott International, Inc. for Bangalore, the Garden City, under a management agreement with Gstaad Hotels Pvt. Ltd. The 250-room property is scheduled to open in early 2007 and joins the 358-room JW Marriott Hotel Mumbai as the epitome of service, hospitality and luxury in the Marriott portfolio in India.

The JW Marriott Hotel Bangalore will be part of a 14-acre development that will also include the new headquarters for United Breweries (UB) Group and UB City, a one million-square-foot mixed-use development offering prime office and retail space. The hotel will be situated on a three-acre site at the corner of Kasturba Road and Vittal Mallya Road, boasting sweeping views of UB City and overlooking the 350-acre Cubbon Park in the center of Bangalore.

The JW Marriott Hotel Bangalore will be located in close proximity to the heart of the city`s commercial center and high-end residential neighborhoods, Bangalore`s race course and golf course, and the Palace Gardens, in addition to the primary retail and entertainment areas of the city center. The airport is approximately a 25-minute drive away.

We are thrilled by the continued growth of our portfolio in India and the addition of this second JW Marriott hotel, said Ed Fuller, president and managing director of international lodging for Marriott International. Bangalore is one of India`s most important commercial centers, and we are confident that this stunning hotel in an excellent location in the heart of the city will be a welcomed addition to the city`s business and tourism infrastructure.

For dining and entertainment, the JW Marriott Hotel Bangalore will have a 24-hour multi-cuisine brasserie; three specialty restaurants, one of which will offer al fresco poolside dining; and the Bangalore Baking Company, a 24-hour coffee shop. It will also feature a lobby lounge and bar, a pool bar and a night club. Recreational amenities will include a spa featuring five treatment rooms, a swimming pool, and a health and fitness center. Additionally, the hotel will have a 24-hour multi-purpose business center, an extensive executive level and retail shops.

For conferences and social events, the JW Marriott Hotel Bangalore will offer 1,140 square meters of space, including a 600-square-meter ballroom that will be divisible into three sections; three additional meeting rooms in varying configurations, one of which will be divisible into two sections, and one boardroom. The flexible function space will further enhance social and banquet events and business meetings in Bangalore.

The Marriott International hotel portfolio in India currently consists of the 358-room JW Marriott Hotel Mumbai, the 153-room Goa Marriott Resort, the 220-room New Delhi Marriott Hotel, the 286-room Renaissance Mumbai Hotel & Conference Center, and the 179-unit Lakeside Chalet Marriott Executive Apartments. The 308-room Hyderabad Marriott is expected to open in mid-year.
