The Indian corporate world gave its unqualified approval to this segmentation. Going beyond the corporate travellers, the chain’s flagship hotels, ITC Maurya, New Delhi and ITC Windsor, Bangalore have had the proud privilege of hosting many world leaders: from former US President Bill Clinton, Russian President Vladimir Putin, British Prime Minister Tony Blair, German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, to business tycoons like Bill Gates and Michael Dell.
