IHG Hotels & Resorts has opened its first Crowne Plaza hotel in Bangladesh, Crowne Plaza Dhaka Gulshan in partnership with Doreen Hotels & Resorts in the heart of Gulshan 2, the prime central business and residential district in Dhaka.
As Dhaka continues to be a sought-after destination for both business and gateway for leisure travellers, IHG has added to the thriving city by opening the first Crowne Plaza hotel in Bangladesh which is teeming with Bengali cultural traditions. The hotel has 149 rooms and suites.
Crowne Plaza Dhaka Gulshan is a 25-minute drive from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport.
As the highly secure zone of Gulshan also houses multiple embassies, ex-pat residential areas, business houses and head offices of Banks, Crowne Plaza Dhaka Gulshan will also be an option for guests travelling to Dhaka for business.
The hotel features an inviting free-form outdoor swimming pool and sundeck with a sunbathing area situated on the rooftop, and hotel gym offers 24-hours fitness with cardio and strength equipment.
The meeting facilities include a Ballroom and multiple meeting rooms accommodating anywhere from 150-200 guests.
