As part of a partnership with Bangladesh Services Limited, IHG has opened the InterContinental Dhaka, marking the brand's re-entry into Bangladesh.
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.
“Today is a milestone occasion for us as we announce the opening of InterContinental Dhaka,” said Vivek Bhalla, regional VP, Southwest Asia, IHG. “The opening also aligns with our strategy to expand our presence across brands and key cities in the SWA region.”
IHG currently operates 32 hotels across Southwest Asia under the brands InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts, Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts and Holiday Inn Express and is aiming for rapid expansion with a pipeline of 60 hotels across several cities.
