Arrow DISCUSSION for Hilton Honors Hotels in India {IND}

I saw a reference to this somewhere else on Flyertalk. The proof can be found on Hilton's website.

6 Cat 1's
1 Cat 3
1 Cat 4

Article on 9 New Hiltons

I tried to post a direct link on hilton's website to search, but that didn't go so well. If U do go search, only 8 show up.

Gurgaon (ex-Delhi) is Cat 4.
Mumbai/Bombay is Cat 3.
The rest in India are Cat 1.

This is very good. I guess I can now entertain clients on the cheap in India using my hotel points.

This thread refers to Hilton Hotels - I ask the question because I read somewhere that the Taj group of hotels will be affiliated with the HHonors program?

I think the reference should have been to the Oberoi hotels and not the Taj Hotels. The Taj Hotels have been pushing to be affiliated with Leading Hotels of the World as much as possible -- although a fair amount of their properties do not qualify.

This is cool. I hope they are tied to the Oberoi or Taj group.

The Trident hotels are B tier hotels of the Oberoi group. B747-347B says many are very good properties.

I am thru my India travelling for awhile, but think this is great. Good Indian hotels are pricey, and this gives us options for some affordable (Category 1) award stays.

Can anyone indicate the name of the Hilton Hotels, in India (is there a web site?) indicating this piece of news?

In addition, is there a web site indicating the link between Oberoi Hotels, and HHonors?

www.tridenthotelsgroup.com has all their properties. Only about half of them are coming over to Hilton. Sadly, the best end is not ... including the ___vilas hotels.

This was the list in the latest email from Hilton:

Hilton Towers Mumbai
Mumbai, India Opening April 2004!
Trident Hilton Agra
Agra, India Opening April 2004!
Trident Hilton Bhubaneswar
Bhubaneswar, India Opening April 2004!
Trident Hilton Chennai
Chennai, India Opening April 2004!
Trident Hilton Cochin
Cochin, India Opening April 2004!
Trident Hilton Gurgaon
Gurgaon, India Opening April 2004!
Trident Hilton Jaipur
Jaipur, India Opening April 2004!
Trident Hilton Udaipur
Udaipur, India Opening April 2004!

I am not up on all the revised city names, so a few of these are likely in cities we know by their colonial names. This would mark a retrun to the country, albeit for a short while when Hilton had a property just east of Connaught Place in New Delhi. That hotel is now the InterContinental, and had been a Holiday Inn shortly after it left the Hilton fold. Stayed there a couple of times back in the mid-90s.

The "Delhi" one is outside in Gurgaon where all the new call centers are up and running.

Exactly. Only the one in Gurgaon to my knowledge may be new and even that I do not know. We do not put clients or staff up out there.

As a background on per night rates:

Hilton Towers Mumbai: US$120-175
Trident Hilton Agra: US$50-100
Trident Hilton Bhubaneswar: US$100-250
Trident Hilton Chennai: US$120-175
Trident Hilton Cochin: US$80-175
Trident Hilton Gurgaon (Delhi suburb): Unknown
Trident Hilton Jaipur: US$120-250
Trident Hilton Udaipur: US$120-175

Mumbai is Bombay and Chennai is Madras. Some linguistic groups in India are on a name-changing kick. Part of the national/ethnic chauvinism movement there.
