Intercontinental Hanoi

This post is part of the series Vietnam Trip Report 2016

After staying two nights at the Sheraton Hanoi, I decided to¬†spend our last night at the Intercontinental Hanoi. The main reason for changing hotels; I had an expiring anniversary night from the Chase IHG card. Another reason is why not try and review another hotel ūüôā

The Intercontinental Hanoi is about a five minute walk away from the Sheraton. We grabbed our luggage and rolled them down from one hotel to the next. Given that a paid night at the time of booking was ~$160 per night, it’s a great use of the free anniversary night. This is a great benefit of the IHG card which has an annual fee of $49. You get a free night each year around the anniversary of your account opening.¬†

The hotel has a separate checkin counter for IHG Rewards members. We were the only ones checking at that time and the process went very quick and smooth.

The hotel is built with a resort style were rooms are scattered over the property in different buildings over Hanoi Westlake.

We were escorted to our room with the help of the bellman. This room had a much nicer and more modern feel than at the Sheraton. Once you walk in the room, the bathroom is to the right.

Intercontinental Hanoi Bottom Line:

After staying at both the Sheraton and the Intercontinental; I would recommend the Intercontinental. It definitely feels more modern and updated. It has better amenities. The breakfast buffet had a better and tastier selection of food.
