Global chain Best Western gears for 700 rooms in Sri Lanka
The US-based Best Western chain of hotels is already looking at expanding its midscale Colombo property, upto 120 rooms in 2014, after its opening in mid June this year. This brand would actually fill the void for rooms at this rate compared to other city hotels. Currently, set to open with only 60 rooms, the Best Western group is looking at further expanding the room capacity by an additional 60, its Asia and Middle Easter International Operations Vice President Glenn de Souza told the Business Times.
He noted that they were eyeing a further expansion to about 700 rooms within Sri Lanka with four more hotels to be established around the island.
