Travel + Leisure: 3 of world's 20 best hotel values call Vietnam home

Vietnam continues to accrue accolades for its hotels as North America magazine Travel + Leisure has named three to its list of ‘World’s Best Hotel Values’ in the March 2011 issue.

The Caravelle Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi and Hilton Hanoi Opera have won spots on the ‘Top 20 Hotels for Value Overall’ list in Travel + Leisure, one of North America’s top two highest circulating travel magazines.

Vietnam was second only to the U.S. in the number of hotels among the top 20.

The winners, chosen by Travel + Leisure readers in the magazine’s World’s Best Awards Survey, each offer rooms for US$300 a night or less.
 
The Caravelle and the Metropole recently won placement on Travel + Leisure’s list of the top 500 hotels in the world. The Metropole also won placement on the Conde Nast Traveler Gold List, as well as more than 20 other prestigious lists in 2010.

In the same issue of Travel + Leisure, Sheraton Nha Trang Hotel & Spa  in the central beach city of Nha Trang was included in a lengthy feature on the ‘Best Affordable Beach Resorts’ in the world. The Sheraton Nha Trang was the only Vietnam resort in this list.

The Travel + Leisure  honor comes on the heels of recognition of Nha Trang by Expedia.com.au, which called the city one of the 10 ‘Best Beach Destinations’ internationally in a December press release.
