Thang Loi Hotel to become Hilton Hanoi Westlake after two parties agree to terms.
The Thang Loi Hotel JSC and Hilton Worldwide have signed a five-star management agreement, with the Thang Loi Hotel in Hanoi to be renovated and become Hilton Hanoi Westlake under the Hilton Group.
It will be the third hotel in the capital bearing the Hilton brand, following the Hilton Hanoi Opera and the Hanoi Hilton Garden Inn, and will have 250 rooms when it welcomes guests in 2018.
According to Mr. William Costley, Hilton Worldwide’s Vice President of Operations, the location of the Thang Loi Hotel is ideal for the city resort model.
Ms. Nguyen Thi Nga, Chairman of the Board at the Thang Loi Hotel JSC, said that West Lake is a priority location in Vietnam and particularly suitable for a hotel complex. With the management of the Hilton Group, after renovations the hotel will contribute to changing the local landscape and boast advanced facilities and services.
Since its transition to the joint stock company model the Thang Loi Hotel JSC has actively worked with leading groups in the field of hotels, golf courses, and amusement parks.
The Thang Loi Hotel has a history of nearly 40 years and is located on an area of about 4.5 ha on Yen Phu Street in Tay Ho district, considered a prime location in the city.
At the end of 2014 the BRG Group, a leading group in operating golf courses, bought shares in the hotel. BRG focuses on the financial sector, banks, and golf courses, and currently operates well-known courses in the north such as the Kings’ Island Golf Resort, the Do Son Seaside Golf Resort, and the Legend Hill Golf Resort.
