Bottom Line

Opened in 2013, the 445-guest room JW Marriott Hanoi is one of the newer luxury hotels in Hanoi and aimed squarely at business travelers. The hotel is situated in an ultra-modern glass building located outside on the campus of the National Convention Center. Guest rooms and suites are spacious and light-filled; they have chic, contemporary decor and modern amenities like 42-inch flat-screens, DVD players, and iPod docks -- but in-room Wi-Fi incurs a fee. On-site features do not disappoint, and include three restaurants, an indoor lap pool, a 24-hour fitness center, and a spa. Guests in Executive Rooms and Suites enjoy free breakfast, snacks, and drinks in the Executive Lounge. InterContinental Hanoi Westlake is a comparable five-pearl alternative with similar amenities, including an outdoor pool and kids' pool.

Scene

 Ultra-modern hotel caters to business travelers 

The JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi occupies a massive ultra-modern glass-fronted building located on the edge of a man-made lake. Completed in 2013, the building has nine levels, with a section on the top for the swimming pool that juts out at an angle. The unusual shape of the building was inspired by a dragon, one of Vietnam's national symbols. Thanks to the large windows, the hotel's spacious public spaces are filled with lots of natural light. The high-ceilinged lobby has shiny white marble walls and black marble floors, and is furnished in a minimalist style, with just a few white contemporary-style armchairs and sofas arranged in sitting areas. A hanging installation of amber-hued tear-shaped glass crystals creates an interesting decorative display above the stairwell. Overall, this is a polished luxury hotel that mainly attracts business travelers drawn to its proximity to the National Convention Center. Some leisure travelers also choose to stay here, but the hotel's location isn't convenient for visiting tourist attractions and the pool is better for swimming laps than entertaining kids.
