Hilton will significantly expand its range of accommodation options in Hanoi in the coming years, following the signing of a dual-branded hotel and serviced residence complex in Vietnam’s capital city. The global hospitality giant has signed a management agreement for a 610-key project, including the Hilton Hanoi West Lake with 240 rooms and 50 serviced residences and the 320-room DoubleTree by Hilton Hanoi West Lake. The two hotels, both of which are scheduled to open in 2020, will also add almost 3,000m² of meeting space to the city.
“DoubleTree by Hilton Hanoi West Lake and Hilton Hanoi West Lake offer complementary accommodation options that enable Hilton to broaden its reach and deliver exceptional experiences to a wider spectrum of segments,” said Sean Wooden, Hilton’s vice president of brand management for Asia Pacific. “In addition to catering to short-stay guests, we will be able to cater to long-stay guests with Hilton Hanoi West Lake’s serviced residences. At the same time, the combined 610-room inventory makes us the top choice for large groups and major events.”
The project is being developed by the BRG Group, which also owns the existing Hilton Hanoi Opera and Hilton Garden Inn Hanoi. The DoubleTree by Hilton brand will be making its debut in the city. And Guy Philips, Hilton’s senior vice president of development for Asia & Australasia, said he is planning to work with BRG Group on “even more projects across the country”.
Hilton now has two hotels operational in Vietnam, with a further six properties in the pipeline including locations in Ho Chi Minh City and Danang.
