Which are the best Marriott Bonvoy hotels in Hanoi, Vietnam? We have already reviewed the best luxury hotels in Vietnam, now we investigate the best Marriott Hotels in Hanoi.
There’s plenty of choice within the Marriott brand including top brands like the Luxury Collection, EDITION, St Regis, W Hotels, and JW Marriott as well as mid-range brands like their Autograph Collection, Renaissance, Sheraton, Le Meridien, Design Hotels, and their Westin collections.
There are only two Marriott Bonvoy hotels in Hanoi. JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi and Sheraton Hanoi Hotel. The JW Marriott is the better hotel if you are choosing between these two hotels. However, there is a MUCH better option in Hanoi if your budget will stretch.
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, is opening a brand new hotel. Four Seasons Hotel Hanoi at Hoan Kiem Lake will be found in the heart of Vietnam’s capital city. While Four Seasons is not part of Marriott Bonvoy, it should be considered as it will be the best luxury hotel in Hanoi.
The new hotel will offer views of Hoan Kiem Lake and the bustling streets leading to the Old and French Quarters, and be located a short walk or scooter ride from many museums and galleries, shopping, and the city’s vibrant culinary scene.
“Hanoi is an incredible city, with a great deal to offer international and local travelers, and we look forward to expanding in the region with first-time partners BRG Group on this exciting project. This is a fantastic opportunity to offer travelers a Four Seasons experience in Hanoi, with partners who are truly passionate about the future of this city, and this hotel in particular,” says J. Allen Smith, President, and CEO of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
Designed by international award-winning firms WATG Architects and SRSS Interior Design Studio, Four Seasons Hotel Hanoi at Hoan Kiem Lake will draw from the French Colonial inspirations that are characteristic of Hanoi and include 95 rooms and suites as well as a spa and fitness center, pools, and event and meeting spaces. Joining the dynamic culinary landscape in the city, Wimberly Interiors, experts in cosmopolitan design will develop the dining and lounge offerings, including an all-day restaurant, lounge, and rooftop bar.
Four Seasons Hotel Hanoi at Hoan Kiem Lake will be the company’s second location in Vietnam, joining Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai, Hoi An which is also one of the best luxury hotels in Vietnam.
1. JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi
JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi offers luxury and indulgence in Hanoi and yet is only a Rewards Category 4 Marriott Bonvoy hotel. JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi is also one of the best hotels with a club lounge in Vietnam.
Located in Hanoi’s new Central Business District, adjacent to the National Convention Center, JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi is a modern hotel. The only disadvantage of this hotel is that if you are a tourist, the location is out of the way, around a 45-minute taxi to the old part of Hanoi. While the taxis here are cheap, maybe $10 USD each way, the fact that you can’t walk too many of the tourist areas is a pain.
On the bright side, this JW is glam. Luxury rooms and spacious suites offer floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Vietnam’s capital city or of the lake. There is an excellent spa or you can go for a swim in the indoor pool, or exercise in the 24-hour fitness center. Dine at renowned restaurants within the hotel or enjoy an evening of live Jazz at their club.
The executive club lounge here is excellent with great food and excellent service, it is comparable to Ritz-Carlton club lounges within America and the setting and food and drink are impressive. Located on the 6th floor and with those lovely floor-to-ceiling windows, this lounge is big with loads of seating.
In the morning, breakfast has a large selection of cold and hot items plus you can order hot items from the menu, such as eggs any style, sausages and bacon, hash browns and grilled tomatoes, etc.
Hot food in the evening must be ordered from a menu and the evening menu includes items like Tapas with prawns, beef, and chicken. The evening buffet includes items like sushi; sun-dried tomatoes, dried fruit, cheese, and cakes. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are also available in the evening from an open bar and include beer wine and spirits with a good selection.
2. Sheraton Hanoi Hotel
Located on the edge of Hanoi’s West Lake, Sheraton Hanoi Hotel is just a quick drive to the bustling downtown of Hanoi City. In fact, you can walk to the Old City area but it will take you around an hour and as there is nothing much in the immediate vicinity, the location of this hotel is not ideal, much like the JW Marriott. Within Hanoi, you can explore the nearby Old Quarter, home to Hoan Kiem Lake, Hanoi Opera House and go shopping.
The graceful decor in Sheraton Hanoi Hotel is inspired by Vietnamese and French colonial décor with high ceilings and an orange and peach color palette. However, not being an original colonial building, this Sheraton lacks the historic significance enjoyed by hotels like the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi.
Highlights of this 5-star hotel include cocktails in the courtyard, fine dining in one of their four excellent restaurants, or taking it easy in the Relaxation Centre with an adjacent outdoor pool and Lakeside Garden.
99 spacious hotel rooms, including 16 suites, with brilliant West Lake views and, of course, the Sheraton Signature Sleep Experience. Inspired by Vietnamese and French colonial décor and designed with soaring ceilings, each room infuses your stay with Hanoi City’s culture and grace.
There is a decent club lounge on a high floor in this Sheraton that offers a continental breakfast with an egg station, evening canapes and soft and alcoholic drinks, spirits, wine, and beer.
Marriott Bonvoy Platinum guests get a free upgrade to a club room and can choose to take their breakfast in the lounge or in the buffet.
