Here is How OYO helped Bringing our National Athletes closer to their Dreams in Jaipur

OYO Hotels & Homes today is synonymous with the dream of every young Indian who is willing to put in the hard yards and persevere amidst all the challenges and chaos to come out victorious. We understand the endeavour it takes to achieve your goals.  However, things can unexpectedly fall apart because of various reasons beyond your control. We came across one such situation recently in Jaipur.

This week, the Rajasthan Cycling Association was organizing the National Cycling Championship in Jaipur and the city witnessed the arrival of national & international-level athletes to participate in the event.  When the Times of India highlighted the plight of the cyclists and the subpar living conditions provided to them, we consulted with the concerned authorities and offered to host them. It was a matter of great pride and honour for us to host the real heroes of our country.


Aditya Ghosh, CEO – India and South Asia, OYO Hotels and Homes, tweeted to the Sports Minister, Cycling Federation of India, Sports Authority of India and other authorities with the offer to host the athletes in OYO Hotels.


Adtya Ghosh's comment on Jaipur Athletes


We are thankful to the authorities for accepting our request and making the Jaipur stay for our athletes nothing less than perfect. We welcomed more than 40 cyclists who received complimentary stays at OYO’s Flagship property. It was quite a turnaround for them-  from sleeping on mattresses on the floor in cold to checking into OYO Hotels’ standardized spacious, air-conditioned rooms which come with spotless linen, free WiFi, hygienic washrooms and skilled staff ensuring a hospitable environment for our special guests. The staff and others cheered when the cyclists entered and formally welcomed them with garlands.  


Our guests were delighted and expressed their gratitude to OYO Hotels for a comfortable stay, which helped them focus on their game. Our mission is to create a perfect space in every place. We are committed to continuously build solutions not only to empower independent hoteliers but also serve as an organization with a conscience that supports and develops our communities.
