Overlooking two legendary lakes and the Red River, Hanoi’s Sofitel Plaza on West Lake now embodies contemporary French elegance and Vietnamese charm. Architect Victor Loh brought a new energy to the hotel with polished marble floors, dark wood furniture and Oriental décor. The hotel’s most sought-after Luxury Club Rooms are more open and spacious, with spectacular views, larger minibars, a built-in connectivity hub, and a palette of earth tones, pale yellow, and vibrant purple accents. An added perk - those staying in Luxury Club Rooms on the 15th to 18th floors have access to Club Sofitel, a business and social venue with tropical décor and iMacs for guest use.
The hotel's fine dining venue, Ming Restaurant, is newly outfitted with silver-detailed seats, a line of potted bonsai, and a charming tea lounge. The breath-taking Summit Lounge also boasts a new look, with an illuminated arched ceiling and lush sofas, all in deep purples, blues, and reds. Venture to the outdoor wooden deck for mesmerizing views of the Hanoi skyline. A lengthy bar, culinary cocktails, and a dedicated DJ booth ensure a good time at this lofty penthouse haven. Those visiting on business can head to one of the hotel's nine meeting rooms, including the Library, which holds a six-person board table, sofa setting, and a 50-inch television.
