Accor currently operates eight hotels under brands-- Novotel, Ibis and Mercure-- and two convention centres that employ about 2,000 people.

"By the end of 2011, we will employ total 5,000 people at Accor operated properties across India," Accor Hotels India, Regional Director of Human Resources Ashwin A Shirali told PTI.

In August this year, Accor had said that it plans to open 90 hotels by 2015, out of which contracts for 60 hotels have already been signed. Around 21 hotels are likely to be operational by the end of 2012.

At present Accor, in partnership with InterGlobe Enterprises, runs hotels under the Ibis brand and has partnership with other companies for Novotel and Mercure brand.
Accor also has plans to bring its other global hotel brands -- Sofitel, Pullman and Formule1 in India by 2011.
