Dhaka, the country's capital, has seen significant economic development in the recent years with a rise in both domestic and international travelers, making IHG's interest in the city understandable. 

The hotel has 226 guestrooms, including five superior suites, five diplomatic suites and five presidential suites. For events, the property has two ballrooms and seven meeting rooms.
