In one of the largest cities in India - Mumbai - end of October was marked by the "Hotel Fever". The reason for that is the visit of U.S. President Barack Obama to India, which should take place in early November.
Obama’s team stopped at the hotel of the Indian hotel chain Taj Hotels - Taj Mahal Hotel, one of the most luxurious hotels in India. During the visit the whole hotel was booked for the stay of American delegation representatives. According to the resource dnaindia.com, during the two days of the visit, without exception, all rooms will be closed for booking.
It is worth noting that it won’t be the one hotel for the delegation of U.S. President. About 200-215 rooms will also be booked in other luxury hotels in Mumbai: Taj President and the ITC Grand Hyatt. As noted by the Indian press, with reference to insiders in the hotels of Mumbai, the last two hotels are booked for the pilots of the U.S. delegation and staff, in particular, Obama's personal chef.
Indian police have promised to ensure full security of the President of the United States. Therefore, all the hotels in Mumbai, where the will be living the American delegation, are to be cordoned off with a triple police circle.
The current visit of President Obama will begin on November 6, 2010. During his visit to India, Obama plans to visit the memorial dedicated to the victims of terrorist attacks in Mumbai. In September 2008, as a result of several terrorist attacks were killed more than a hundred people. One of the targets of the terrorists was the Taj Mahal Hotel, where the criminals for a long time kept the hostages.
