Marriott to open three new India hotels

US-based lodging firm Marriott International on Thursday said it has entered into a long term management agreement with real estate developer Unitech to run three new hotels in India, which are expected to start operations by 2008. The company said under its agreement with subsidiaries of Unitech, it will manage the hotels under the Courtyard brand, which will have a total of 659 rooms.
