Popularly known as the Silicon Valley of India because of its positioning as the nation’s leading IT employer and exporter, the city of Bengaluru has today developed into one of India’s major economic hubs. Fortune Park JPCelestial is rightly placed in this ever growing metropolis, designed to cater to the needs of the modern day traveler. The hotel offers a warm welcome, pleasant ambience and an excellent range of guest facilities and services backed by great hospitality.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Pawan Verma, Senior Executive Vice President, ITC Ltd.-Hotels Division, said, “Recognizing the need for a brand that addressed the needs of the mid-price to up-scale segment of travellers, ITC, a pioneer in the business of hospitality, launched the Fortune Hotels chain a little more than a decade ago. The Fortune chain has since provided contemporary accommodation and great value for business and leisure travellers. The creation of the Fortune chain may be considered another successful pioneering effort by ITC - emulated thereafter by other leading chains in India. Now among the largest and fastest growing in the country, the chain caters to a wide spectrum of travellers, through its various sub-brands. With the opening of Fortune Park JPCelestial, the Fortune chain’s 29th hotel and third property in Bengaluru, ITC reinforces its faith in this globally important city.”
Mr. Suresh Kumar, President, Fortune Hotels, said, “We are delighted to add another hotel in this wonderful city and to partner with J P Group once again, who have reposed their trust in our brand. We would put in our best to uphold this trust and also look forward to more alliances with the Group in the near future. Keeping in mind the rapid strides this city has made during the recent years, we are confident of receiving a good response for our hotel. The Fortune brand with its full service style, offers all the necessary facilities that today’s business travelers need, besides a comfortable and secure environment.”
