Sofitel Metropole Hanoi: Top Choice for Helene Darroze, Michelin-Starred Chef at The Connaught

May 29, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Sofitel Metropole HanoiHotel of choice for star chef* Hélène Darroze? The Sofitel Metropole in Hanoi. As recently highlighted in L'Officiel Voyage, Darroze expresses her adoration for The Metropole, choosing it "for its history and elegance, and also because it was my hideaway when I went to pick up my little girl two years ago." (Darroze's adopted daughter is from Hanoi.) The colonial-style hotel is a legendary landmark in the city, attracting a noteworthy guest list of playwrights, ambassadors, and culinary superstars since its opening in 1901.

*When she opened her restaurant at The Connaught in London last year, it promptly won a Michelin star-- in addition to the two she holds for her Parisian restau. Don't miss a meal from one of the best female chefs in the world.
