Business travelers now have a new option in Jakarta following the introduction of The Westin Jakarta on Monday.

Dubbed the city's tallest hotel, the property sits between the 50th and 69th floors of the mixed-use Gama Tower on Jl. Rasuna Said in Kuningan, South Jakarta. With a soft opening slated for Aug. 26, it boasts 360-degree views of the city, from surrounding areas to the faraway shores of North Jakarta that are visible on a clear day.

“Our tagline is: you pay for the room, the view is free,” said general manager Arun Kumar.
