Additionally, it will manage six hotels currently under construction and slated to open over the next two years, as well as a near-doubling later this year of one of its existing hotels. Scheduled to open next year is the 153-room Courtyard by Marriott West Pune. It will be followed in 2009 by the 250-room JW Marriott Hotel Pune, and in 2010 by the 430-room Pune Marriott Hotel & Convention Center.
