The Crowborough Hotel at Police Bazaar, Shillong, which has been rechristened as Taj Vivanta Shillong will be formally inaugurated by Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on October 14.
Sangma told reporters that the inauguration has been delayed as the team from Taj (Group) has made more observations. “It will take another five to ten days to add those requirements that the team has asked for,” he said.
Vivanta will be the first 5-Star Hotel in Shillong which will be formally inaugurated in October.
The CM said there will be a soft launch of the rooms and other amenities before the hotel is able to welcome guests.
Clarifying that the President will not be inaugurating the hotel, Sangma said that it will not be appropriate for the President of India to come to Shillong to inaugurate a privately run hotel.
