Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Hilton’s iconic luxury hotel brand, announced its entry into Viet Nam with the signing of Waldorf Astoria Hanoi on October 11.

The hotel, owned by BRG Group and managed by Hilton, continues the brand’s entry into the world’s most sought-after destinations such as Sydney, Tokyo, Jakarta, and Kuala Lumpur. Scheduled to open in 2025, Waldorf Astoria Hanoi will join Hilton’s pipeline of nine other hotels and resorts that will open in Viet Nam in the coming years.

Nestled in the capital 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 across each of its 187 rooms and suites, after extensive renovations are complete.

“We are thrilled to debut our premier Waldorf Astoria brand in Viet Nam with our longstanding partner BRG Group. This signing marks a significant milestone in one of the world’s fastest-growing economies and tourism destinations. Situated in the heart of Ha Noi next to the iconic Hanoi Opera House, Waldorf Astoria Hanoi will enhance the country’s luxury travel offerings to capture a rapidly growing segment of discerning travelers,” said Guy Phillips, senior vice president, Development, Asia and Australasia, Hilton.

“As one of the world’s top travel spots, Viet Nam 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 Viet Nam’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 BRG Group chairwoman Nguyen Thi Nga. — VNS
