For Saigon, a high-end hotel with comfortable rooms and historic feel. Good service, no complaints, but not 5-star service by any stretch. Food is good, but not great, and somewhat expensive compared to other local higher-end restaurants. I appreciated the clean wood floors in the rooms, because hotel carpeting is gross.
A tip - if you need to do laundry - don't do it at the hotel - very expensive!
We asked the concierge for laundry service, and after declining his first suggestion of the hotel service, he gave us the name of an outside service, who picked up the laundry and returned it within hours, no problems and much, much cheaper.
