The Hilton Hanoi Opera will be converted to Waldorf Astoria Hanoi. The 187-room and suite Waldorf Astoria Hanoi is scheduled to open in 2025 after extensive renovations are completed. This conversion is Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts‘ first property in Vietnam. The hotel is owned by BRG Group and managed by Hilton.
“As one of the world’s top travel spots, Vietnam has received numerous international accolades and was recently crowned as Asia’s Leading Destination. 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 travellers, bolstering the appeal and growth of the country’s luxury tourism sector,” said Nguyen Thi Nga, chairman, BRG Group.
The hotel will feature four world-class dining concepts including the brand’s lounge and bar Peacock Alley, a rooftop lounge and two other distinctive restaurants. Other facilities include 1,000 sqm of event spaces as well as the award-winning Waldorf Astoria spa.
The hotel is a short walking distance from the Old Quarter and Horn Kiem Lake. Noi Bai International Airport is 27 km or 40 minutes away by car. Major tourist attractions such as the National Museum of Vietnamese History, Ba Dinh Square and Trang Tien Plaza are nearby.
