SINGAPORE – March 12, 2024 – Leading global hospitality company Hilton (NYSE:HLT)  announced the opening of Hilton Saigon in the vibrant financial and residential hub of Ho Chi Minh  City. This marks the debut of its award-winning flagship brand — and first hotel — in the city. A  centrepiece in the heart of the metropolis with impressive views, Hilton Saigon embodies the  essence of the locality, powered by a passion for service and hospitality. 

“Hilton’s entry into Ho Chi Minh City underscores our commitment to bringing Hilton’s world-class  brands to where our guests want to be, as we fulfil our ambition of exceeding 1,000 hotels by  2025,” said Alan Watts, president, Asia Pacific, Hilton. “As a gateway city to Vietnam, Ho Chi  Minh City is a prime destination for both business and leisure travelers alike. I am confident that Hilton Saigon will uphold our legacy of delivering exceptional service and hospitality to create a  memorable stay for every guest.”  

Located just 30 minutes away from the Tan Son Nhat Airport, the hotel is surrounded by famous  cultural sites and historical landmarks. Guests can explore the city’s charming heritage buildings  such as the Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, the Saigon Central Post Office, and the Saigon Opera  House, all within walking distance from the hotel. Beyond the neighbourhood, travelers can  embark on authentic local excursions such as a picturesque tour of the Mekong Delta, an exciting  exploration of the 200-kilometer Cu Chi Tunnel, or a scenic sunset cruise along the Saigon River.  

“We are thrilled to partner with Hilton to introduce Hilton Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City. With our  deep understanding of the local market and Hilton's long-standing expertise and legacy, we are  confident that Hilton Saigon will set a new precedent in Vietnam's hospitality landscape," said  Phan Quang Chat, chairman of board of directors, Unity Investment Corporation. 

Thoughtful design with an urban pulse 

Hilton Saigon pays homage to Ho Chi Minh City through the seamless integration of the city’s  heritage and culture into its design and architecture, creating an environment that balances  serenity and vibrancy for its guests.

Featuring a contemporary yet timeless silhouette, Hilton  Saigon will serve as an architectural landmark in the cityscape. 

The hotel's 228 guest rooms and suites offer sleek, contemporary interiors with subtle botanical inspirations, and stunning views of the Saigon River, enabling guests to take in the essence of  Ho Chi Minh City.
