The Caravelle Hotel, Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) Plans Major Overhaul

April 28, 2008 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

The Caravelle, SaigonSaigon's most storied hotel is getting a makeover. Made famous during the American-Vietnam War when journalists camped out on the hotel rooftop and filed stories (Walter Cronkite stayed here during his 1968 tour of the country), the landmark Caravelle Hotel reopened in May 1998 and soon attracted clientele like President Bill Clinton and the Lord Mayor of London. It's already pretty swanky; there's a free-form swimming pool with Jacuzzi set amidst lush lagoon palms, rooftop terrace and bar, the tranquil Qi Spa, and newly-revamped restaurant Nineteen (one of the city's best buffets). But The Caravelle has big plans for 2008. Not only will all the guest rooms and suites be renovated, but the hotel will also introduce a slew of environmentally friendly green initiatives and the publication of a book that celebrates the hotel's history. The Caravelle is situated in the very heart of the city, across from one of Vietnam's three colonial-era Opera Houses.
