International hospitality chain Hyatt Hotel Corporation would open its 5 star property 'Hyatt Regency' in Ludhiana very soon. This would be the first hotel in Ludhiana also known as "Manchester of India", in International Five Star Deluxe Category.
Further, this will be the group's second full service hotel in Punjab, besides Hyatt Amritsar. The opening of second hotel indicates that group is betting big on Punjab market. Also in the pipeline is Hyatt Regency in Chandigarh.
Speaking to Business Standard, Hyatt Regency-Ludhiana, GM, Glenn Peat said, " We hope to commence our operations commercially very soon. This will be the second full service Hyatt hotel under development in the state of Punjab, joining Hyatt Amritsar."
"The hotel strategically located off the Chandigarh- Ferozepur National Highway 95,in Ludhiana's commercial corridor. The hotel is in close proximity to the commercial development and city's premier shopping hub. This makes Hyatt Regency Ludhiana an ideal destination for business and leisure travelers, ' added Glenn.
The property offers 168 contemporarily styled and spacious guestrooms including 26 suites ranging from 409 sq ft to 1981 sq ft. 2 dedicated Regency Club floors cater to the needs of discerning travelers with its business facilities and a Regency Club Lounge.

According to Glenn the hotel will set new benchmark in hospitality in this city as its residents and visitors will experience the first class offerings of internationally well known brand. On being asked about the potential in Ludhiana, Glenn said, "There is huge potential in Ludhiana which need to be tapped. Lot of global brands source their product from Ludhiana, so they keep on visiting the city, it is where the potential lies. In absence of hotel in International Five Star Deluxe Category in the city, normally business travellers prefers to stay in Chandigarh. We are banking on that category and will try to capture the high-end business and leisure travel segments. Since Ludhiana is commercial capital and also lies in centre of the state, we are planning to promote it as tourist destination by joining hands with Punjab government."
He also added, " The recent Reserve Bank of India report, which puts Punjab among the top three investment destinations in India during 2012-13, would act as catalyst to attract new investments, thus bringing in business travellers."

We will open Hyatt Regency in Ludhiana very soon. Other scheduled openings in this period are Hyatt Raipur and Hyatt Place Pune."
