“First Class Hotel in Gulshan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2011

I have stayed at the Westin Dhaka five times in the last two years with the most recent trip being at the beginning of September. Having been booked on the executive floors access to the business lounge and other services are a nice perk. The rooms themselves are well done with very comfortable beds. One should be warned that if you get a room on the 22nd floor you may end up right under the disco/bar which tends to go late especially on Thursday nights. The location is right in the Diplomatic core and there are nearby markets to wander in if that is your interest. The security at the hotel itself is quite good with proper screening of luggage and individuals taking place. The breakfast at the main restaurant is exceptional with good variety. I took in the Thursday night barbeque at Splash on this most recent trip and found the food to be reasonably priced (by international standards) and very tasty. If you are there for several days the staff gets to know your name and give you personal service. Having stayed at a couple other places in Dhaka, I always try to return to the Westin.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms directly under the disco on the upper level.

Locationwise Westin Dhaka is very good, not far from airport and also close to heart of the city;s business hub. Rooms are very spacious with modern amenities. Internet connection was good and wifi works well too. food is good.
Only drawback I felt - being a SPG Gold member - denied the accees of the lounge...No reason why ?
otherwise overall experience is always good here...bit expensive as number of good hotels are less in Dhaka.

The trip from the Airport to the hotel which was estimated to be 15-20 miles took almost two hours...the trafic is horrendous. You need to build this into your trip.

Arriving at the hotel a full security check of the car internal and below the car took place before I could progress to the front door of the hotel.
Arriving into the loby of the hotel again my bags placed on a security system, it must be required I thought !! ( must be a security risk at this hotel ??)

The reception is bright a spacious, and gives a good first impression.
The room was clean and tidy , although there was a musky smell that reminded me of dampness.

The room had internet connections and a management center , the staff were excellent in the center, and very helpful.

Did'nt eat in the hotel but the decor was very impressive, a small Patisserie and cafe bar was in the lounge in you wanted a quick coffee.

Breakfast was multi national food excellent.

Rooms are clean and spacious. Bed is very comfortable. Bathrooms are excellent. Airport transfers are reliable. The italian restaurant is delicious and the breakfast buffet is good.

The only negative I can think of is that car hire by the hour is very expensive.

yes, you read it right! literally the whole world stays at the westin when they come to dhaka. i havent seen so many people from different countries anywhere but this hotel. everything this place has to offer is amazing - restaurants, food, gym, bar, pool, etc. its a bit steep staying here but for me it was worth every penny. the comfort this place has to offer cannot be matched. the location is simply the best (its the poshest locality in dhaka - gulshan 2).

Room Tip: book in advance and you can get good rates

We stayed in Dhaka & dropped by the Westin to use their pool & spa!

Pool use was a little steep, around $20 for the day but simply worth it! The hotel is located in the hustle & bustle of Gulshan, Dhaka but once inside you don't feel you are in Bangladesh!

Pool is heated and clean! We also got a few beers (also expensive) & food from the poolside restaurant! The food was actually fantastic - nachos & quesidilias were great! Service was prompt & staff are friendly

My wife used the spa & she was very impressed! She got herself a spa and she thought it was fabulous - again price is steep but worth it!

Overall a fantastic hotel to getaway from the madness of Dhaka, Bangladesh! There isn't a lot of top notch hotels in this city hence the prices are higher as there is no competition!
