The Westin Dhaka
Ranked #3 of 83 Hotels in Dhaka City
Reviewed July 8, 2011

This hotel is exceptional. I have had the opportunity to stay at this property over the last few years, in total I have spent several months at this Westin. While the property itself is exceptional, it is the quality staff and service that really make it stand out. Catering primarily to business clientele, it nonetheless accomodates families quite nicely.
- The fitness facility is well maintained, well outfitted and clean

- The spa/sauna/jacuzzi is excellent

The massage treatment is hit and miss. I've had a good experience with a masseuse
who knew what she was doing and another with an amateur.

- Executive Club is what really makes this property stand out. The staff are friendly, professional and really make you feel as if you are the only guest on the property.

- DINING -
- Taste (the on-premise restaurant) makes absolutely outstanding food - my favorite being the Indian/Bangladeshi dishes by far. But beleive it or not the sushi is quite good as are the other western style options. Only issue here is that the restaurant can get really busy on the weekends and there is no preference for hotel guests when this happens. Not that big of a deal but something to keep in mind.

-Prego is located on the top floor of the hotel. Again, the food is excellent and generally I have found it to be less busy than Taste. Try the Spaghetti Bolognese.

-Splash. Thursday nights there is a BBQ by the pool which is excellent. Meat, poultry and fish are made to order on the spot.

I stayed here for 5 days on a work trip. The service was professional and efficient in all aspects. We stayed on the executive floor which had drinks and snacks in the evening which was nice. Room was one of the nicest city rooms (for business) that I have stayed in. We ate lovely Italian food in the restaurant, used the gym and pool, used the meeting rooms taxis provided from the hotel, laundry etc etc. Everything flows well in this business hotel. The decor and atmosphere is nicer than the radisson. As a tired business traveller the westin was a jewel. Would definitely stay here again.
Thanks westin!

Thanks to Westin, we never felt out of home at Dhaka.
Situated in the most central part of Dhaka, food was great and rooms very comfortable. We had free Wi-Fi on the house.

The hotel is located in Gulshan which is one of the most secured and posh areas in Bangladesh. The rooms is like a 4 and a half star hotel althogh the beds are very nice as they are memory foam. The best part about this hotel is that the restaurant at the 4th floor is quite exquisitem. It serves the best continental food i have ever tried in Bangladesh.

This is the Hotel to stay in, feel sorry for people who have stayed for the first time in a hotel and dont know what a FIVE STAR hotel is..the westin Dhaka surpasses any hotel in the country , the sevice is first rate. I have met the GM personally and is the best PR person in town, they go out of their way to assist guests. The food quality is fantastic, the variety the best in town, comparable to anywhere in the world. My check in is seamless and friendly, I am recognised from the moment I step out of the car and am always treated like a royal person. The rooms are just the best , spacious with attentive service in true Starwood westin style. Ask for the GM he is a friendly chap ,and will go out of his way to accomadate your request.Its a business person's hotel and totally in tune with my needs.
I shall be back and recommend it to all , stay in the best and in style.

Amazing to find a chain hotel with such good staff, and impeccable service standards. Once you have gotten over having to take an escalator to the reception area, you are greeted like a long-lost friend (although you had stayed here only once before), and taken to a wonderfully appointed smoking (yes, they remembered) room. The bed is comfortable, the airconditioning is perfect and the bathroom is luxurious. The internet works, although it is a wired connection. The breakfast buffet is first-rate and the service standards are exemplary. As good as a hotel can get!

Nice hotel with spacious rooms and modern amenities. The restaurants are nice and the bars are good. Decent entertainment too in the evenings with live band. Very centrally located. Nice pool and fitness center. Hair salon and spa available. Very helpful staff. The rates are a bit steep in comparison to other hotels in global metros.
