Hilton’s Waldorf Astoria brand to debut in Vietnam with a property in Hanoi

Hilton’s luxury brand, Waldorf Astoria, will make its entry in Vietnam with a property in Hanoi.

Nestled in the city’s beautiful and historic city centre, the upcoming Waldorf Astoria Hanoi is a conversion of the current Hilton Hanoi Opera and will feature fully reimagined accommodations. Scheduled to open in 2025, the hotel is a short walking distance from the city’s famous Old Quarter and Hoan Kiem Lake. It is also within close proximity to Hanoi’s major commercial buildings, and a convenient 27 kilometers, or 40 minutes by car, from Noi Bai International Airport. Located near major tourist attractions in the bustling capital, including the National Museum of Vietnamese History, Ba Dinh Square and Trang Tien Plaza, the hotel is ideal for travelers looking to immerse themselves in the city’s timeless charm and rich history.

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 travelers, bolstering the appeal and growth of the country’s luxury tourism sector.

said Nguyen Thi Nga, Chairman, BRG Group (the group which owns the property).

Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts operates six hotels in China, Thailand and the Maldives, and will more than double its presence in Asia Pacific over the next five years with new properties in cities such as Sydney, Tokyo, Osaka, Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur.

Waldorf Astoria Hanoi will join Hilton’s pipeline of nine other hotels and resorts that will open in Vietnam in the coming years.
