Location 1 Minto Road, Ramna, Dhaka, Bangladesh
Opening 1966

The InterContinental Dhaka is a prominent luxury hotel in Ramna in central Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. It was the first international five star hotel in the country and opened in 1966, as the Inter-Continental Dacca when the city, (then known as Dacca) was the capital of East Pakistan. Its architect was William B. Tabler.[1]

The hotel played host to many important political events in the run up to the independence of Bangladesh, including negotiations on the transfer of power after the 1970 elections. During the Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971, it was declared a neutral zone by the International Red Cross.[2] Many buildings in its surrounding neighborhoods were targeted by the Pakistani military, including newspaper offices and university halls.[3]

InterContinental Hotels continued to operate the hotel until 1983, when it was taken over by Sheraton, becoming the Sheraton Dhaka Hotel. In 2011, Sheraton announced that it would end its contract with the Bangladeshi government to manage the hotel, which was renamed the Ruposhi Bangla Hotel.[4] In 2013, it was announced that ICHG would return to Dhaka and undertake a major renovation of the hotel, which is scheduled to reopen as the InterContinental Dhaka[5] in February 2018.[6]
