Best Western International signed a contract with Maple Leaf Hotel & Resorts for a new-build hotel located adjacent to Bangladesh’s main international air gateway, Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport.
Currently under construction, the hotel will operate under the upscale Best Western Plus product when it opens in the second quarter of 2014. All 56-room will include international amenities, such as comfortable beds, flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, minibars, tea and coffee making facilities and complimentary Wi-Fi.
The hotel will also have an all-day restaurant serving local and international dishes, a bar, fitness center, sauna, steam room and spa. There will similarly be a rooftop barbecue outlet.
For Best Western International, the new Best Western Plus hotel will be its second in Dhaka, following the 51-room Best Western La Vinci Hotel. The company expects to expand further across Bangladesh in the coming months and years, with plans for at least three hotels in the coastal destination of Cox's Bazar.
