Welcomhotel Tavleen Chail in Himachal Pradesh is the latest property to be opened by ITC Hotels under its Welcomhotel brand. ITC Hotels, part of ITC Limited group of companies, recently announced that it is planning to add new hotels under its Welcomhotel brand, a beacon of hope for the beleaguered hospitality and travel industry.

According to the company, the expansion plan is based on an uptick in domestic tourism. With international borders still not open for India and other travel-related regulations, there has been a rise in people’s interest to explore Indian destinations.
