The Waldorf Astoria brand has announced its entry into Vietnam with the signing of Waldorf Astoria Hanoi.
Located in Hanoi’s historic city centre, the property is a conversion of the current Hilton Hanoi Opera. After extensive renovations are complete, it will offer fully reimagined accommodations across each of its 187 rooms and suites.
“Hilton is committed to being everywhere our guests want to be for any stay occasion. The introduction of Waldorf Astoria Hanoi with our longstanding partner BRG Group, will offer travelers a superior luxury option in one of Asia Pacific’s most sought-after destinations,” said Kevin Jacobs, chief financial officer and president, global development, Hilton.
In addition to renovated accommodations, the luxury hotel will also feature four world-class dining concepts including the brand’s world-famous lounge and bar, Peacock Alley, a rooftop lounge and two other distinctive restaurants, as well as 10,000 square feet of event space and an award-winning Waldorf Astoria spa.
Waldorf Astoria Hanoi is a short walking distance from the city’s famous Old Quarter and Hoan Kiem Lake. It is also close to Hanoi’s major commercial buildings, and 27 kilometers – 40 minutes by car – from Noi Bai International Airport. Nearby tourist attractions include the National Museum of Vietnamese History, Ba Dinh Square and Trang Tien Plaza.
“As one of the world’s top travel spots, Vietnam has received numerous international accolades and was recently crowned as Asia’s Leading Destination,” said Nguyen Thi Nga, chairman, BRG Group. “Through our partnership with Hilton, we are confident Waldorf Astoria Hanoi will play a major part in accelerating Vietnam’s image as one of Asia’s most dynamic destinations for luxury travelers, bolstering the appeal and growth of the country’s luxury tourism sector.”
