Indoor and outdoor meeting venues will be available for large and small gatherings.

Likewise, Crowne Plaza Bengaluru Raj Bhavan Road will offer 140 rooms. Due to its strategic location, the hotel is expected to be a popular accommodation among corporate travellers. In addition to a meeting venue, the hotel will have a business centre and a pool.

Commenting on this new announcement, Sudeep Jain, vice president, development, South West Asia, IHG said, “Bengaluru serves as a host to many leading conferences and seminars attracting global business visitors in large numbers.
