Hotel Review – Park Hyatt Saigon
Following an extensive renovation in 2015, the Park Hyatt has regained its position as Saigon’s top luxury chain hotel. Located in the heart of District 1, the hotel is perfectly situated for both leisure and business travelers.
Check-in was a very pleasant experience. Upon arrival at the reception, a staff member escorted us to our Deluxe Park King pool room where the entire check-in process was completed in less than a minute with the swipe of a credit card and a signature. It was a nice procedure and other hotels could learn from this. Our luggage arrived a couple of minutes after us.
Due to our late night arrival after a 24 hour journey from the US, we ordered some room service of grilled pork with rice and a fried egg which was delicious and arrived within 15 minutes.
The Park Hyatt’s 245 luxuriously appointed guestrooms are furnished in the unique style of colonial French Indochina. They offer wonderfully plush beds and all the amenities one would expect from this luxury brand, including Nespresso machines and high quality bath products from Cochine Saigon.
Throughout the hotel the decor is one of understated elegance and style. The hotel is an oasis of peace from the bustling streets of Saigon, with a live pianist playing at a grand piano in the bar adjacent to the lobby.
As with all Park Hyatt hotels, the service was exemplary and all contact with hotel staff was pleasant.
The breakfast buffet at the Opera restaurant was wonderful, offering a wide selection of Vietnamese and western options from both the impressive buffet and the menu. The hotel also has a Vietnamese fine dining restaurant, Square One, however with so many other local restaurants within walking distance we didn’t eat there.
Saigon is home to a number of luxury hotels, but we feel that the Park Hyatt’s graceful service, location and style makes it the best choice in the city for travelers looking for something memorable .
