Updated: Aug 17, 2016 11:46 IST

New Delhi, Aug 17 (ANI): India's largest branded network of hotels OYO has announced offering pilgrims high-quality hospitality services for Andhra Pradesh's biggest event, ' Krishna Pushkaralu' to help them overcome the problems of lack of affordable accommodation that bedevil travelers during popular religious festivals face.

OYO has invested more than Rs. five million for ensuring the availability of rooms along with its trusted facilities for millions of devotees arriving from all parts of India.

The grand event is expected to witness a footfall of more than 35 million devotees from Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Odisha, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Gujarat and other states.

Backed by their team of smart leaders, OYO devised innovative measures to solve this problem, true to their promise of #OYOisEverywhere, whereby ready services are offered to customers in any part of India.

Currently, OYO is providing accommodation with specially-launched 12-hour stays in more than 15 hotels across Vijayawada with affordable tariffs beginning from Rs. 999/- only.

This is a boon for most travellers who seek a quick stay in Vijayawada during the festival and then swiftly head back home. All hotels are equipped with AC, Wi-Fi, hygienic washrooms, clean linen and complimentary breakfast.

"We have specialized teams in highly-approachable zones like the Railway Station, bus stands and other entry points spread across Vijayawada, ensuring even last-minute travelers find good accommodation options. Travelers with families find it particularly convenient because the best stay experience is available at affordable rates," said Head of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana OYO, Nupur Marepalli.

"As India's largest hotel and religious destination accommodation brand for holy festivals with coverage network from Katra in Jammu to Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu, we have experience in being the hotel of choice during festivals with massive footfalls running into 20 million," said Chief Growth Officer OYO, Kavikrut.

Coupled with affordable service and easy-stay options, OYO is clearly the first choice for modern pilgrim travelers. (ANI)
