First Aerocity hotel partially opens

After a delay of almost six years, the JW Marriott hotel opened its doors to visitors. Services at the 523-room hotel were started partially on Friday, October 18, after a two year wait by the management of the hotel.

The Aerocity project has been in limbo for the past six years, after security agencies raised objections to tarmac-facing rooms at the hotel. Agencies feared that these may pose a threat to aircrafts and passengers.

After several rounds of inspections, a Delhi police unit gave a partial clearance to the hotel earlier this month. However, permissions to 200 tarmac-facing rooms at the hotel were withheld till their windows were replaced with bulletproof glass as recommended by the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO).

JW Marriott spokesperson, Sonia Rana, said the hotel had been opened with a reduced capacity of 300 rooms as of now and that they would begin reservations for the remaining rooms in the next 45-60 days. “Hotels are usually opened in phases, so we are opening with a limited number of rooms. The rest of the room will also be opened to public in days to come,” said Sonia Rana, spokesperson for JW Marriott hotel.
