gym was great with seperate men and women area. the pool also looked good but was busy most nights. the breakfast could have been better. good choices but nothing special and thought the.quality could have been a bit.better.

ate at prego on the top floor twice. great food and view but pricey

The Westin Dhaka is a beautiful modern hotel in a safe district of Dhaka. Rooms are well appointed and large. It's located in a vibrant area with many decent restaurants within walking distance. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They do disturb people a lot with cleaning, checking to see if the room was cleaned, bringing snacks and so forth. But they do respect the DND signs so use it if you don't want constant knocks on your door. I had trouble with the wifi which was not always working and I found the tech support lacking. Speed isn't great so Skype is hard to use. Lovely pool and great gym. Breakfast was excellent with many choices.

My main complaint is the price off food. As always, price are astronomical for such a poor country. A simple plate of pasta is USD20, a sandwich is about the same. The quality is fine, but not worth the mark-up. A 5 minute walk will bring you to a nice Japanese restaurant where a meal of sushi, tempura and a few beers will cost you the same.

Room Tip: Choose rooms facing south as the parking across the street nearer to the north side of the hotel bec...

Overall the hotel was very good. A couple of issues included a lot of public smoking, including in the restaurants. My first room also smelled like a smoking room. The staff was great about getting me a different room. The food was good, particularly the lower level restaurant. Good, but not great. I would definitely recommend staying there and would stay there again if I visit Dhaka another time.

Room Tip: The higher you go the less noise from the street.

The Hotel Westin is probably the best hotel in Dhaka (and Bangladesh). The contradiction between the street outside and the hotel is huge, as the quality is at the same standard as any other Westin hotel in the world.

The staff is friendly and the food is good.
They have not been professional enought when it comes to hosting us in conference rooms, as the service interrups us constantly, making it impossible to hold discussion.

Based on the conditions overall in Dhaka, the Westin Hotel is the best hotel to stay in. The restaurants are very good and the rooms are nice with excellent service. It is unfortunate that the wifi was spotty and not available in most rooms but overall this is a good business hotel to stay in Dhaka.

This is my 4th stay at Westin Dhaka and definitely my best experience among them. It was my wife's birthday and I reached out to Front desk manager Tawsif Ahmed...he did a wonderful job and surprised her with a cake, fruit basket and a nice card. We also got a room in high floor with good view.
The front desk check in was smooth and room service food was tasty.. Would highly recommend Nasi Goreng.
We also felt that the staff have become more proficient in english over the years.

Room Tip: High floor to avoid street noise
