Feedback provided by travelers from around the globe propelled Ho Chi Minh City’s iconic hotel, Caravelle Saigon, to a major award from the world’s largest travel website last week.
Last week, TripAdvisor elevated Caravelle Saigon to its 2015 Hall of Fame, an award reserved exclusively for properties which have won the site’s Certificate of Excellence for five consecutive years.
Caravelle Saigon, which has garnered just under 1,000 five-star reviews from guests as of press time, celebrates its promotion to TripAdvisor’s Hall of Fame on the eve of its 56th year in operation. Over the years, reviewers on the popular travel site have consistently scored Caravelle Saigon with top marks. Many former and returning guests leave words of praise for the hotel’s unsurpassed location on Lam Son Square, its international breakfast buffets and gracious Vietnamese service.
“There’s no higher recommendation in this business than the one that comes from a former guest,” said John Gardner, the hotel’s General Manager. “That Ho Chi Minh City offers such a diversity of accommodation only makes this award more meaningful for Caravelle Saigon, proving its ability to stand out from the crowd and move forward with the times.”
The award comes on the heels of the first in a series of upgrades taking place at the 335-room property. Since launching a significant enhancement last year, Caravelle Saigon has unveiled a redesigned lobby, refreshed Nineteen Buffet Restaurant and ground-level Café de l’Opera, as well as an all-new Champagne Corner and Tapas Kitchen. In addition, the hotel has recently added to its permanent art collection photographs by acclaimed National Geographic contributor, Catherine Karnow, showcasing 25 years of change in Vietnam – this art is available to the public from 16:00 – 23:00 daily at the Martini Bar located on the hotel’s 3rd floor.
