After flying from Muscat, Oman I arrived at Ho Chi Minh City airport in the evening and had a tour operator pick us up at the airport for a minimal fee.  Travel time from the airport to the hotel was about 30 minutes.



Since this is a Category 4 hotel, I was able to use my annual free night certificate that I received from my Chase Hyatt Credit card for the first night.  For the second night, I used points plus cash which came out to 7,500 points plus $100.  Not bad considering the standard rate for two nights in a suite here goes for $1,100.

Check-In procedures where fast since they walked me straight to the room once I arrived at the front desk.  The hotel checked me in using a tablet as we were making our way to the room.  Since I was a diamond member they upgraded me to a suite.  This doesn’t happen often, so I very much appreciated this.

Location (5/5)

Park Hyatt Saigon is centrally located with many tourist attractions and restaurants within walking distance.  During the first night, we walked around the city and had a great meal at a roof top bar.  Also, all the tours we booked had no issue picking us up at the hotel entrance.


Room (5/5)

The room was beautifully decorated with high quality french styled furniture that was in great condition.  There were desks in both the living room and bedroom, along with a kitchenette, small dining room table, and a large walk-in closet.  I was also impressed by all the real flowers placed in the room to add some color.  The room felt more like a home than the typical bland hotel room with the same old furniture.

Food (4/5)

There are many amazing places to eat in Vietnam, so I only had breakfast at the hotel.  Breakfast had the typical spread of breads, meats, fruit, and eggs.  However, I enjoyed starting the day with a tasty bowl of Pho soup and a baguette.

Pool Area (4/5)

For being in the middle of a very crowed city, the pool area on the roof is great place to relax and is decorated with a lot of greenery.

Service (5/5)

Service at this hotel is top notch, well staffed, friendly, and ready to accommodate at a moments notice.  During check-in, they asked the specific time I would be checking out.  I wasn’t sure why they wanted to know this, but as I leaving my room for the last time there was a bellhop waiting in the hallway to take our luggage downstairs.  I especially liked the complementary wine, fruit, and suite upgrade for being a diamond member.

This is the perfect hotel for staying in Saigon due to its central location, excellent service, well appointed rooms, and tasty breakfast.  I enjoyed the home away from home feel of the room and will certainly make this my first choice when I return to Saigon.
