Elegant. Sophisticated. Luxurious. Refined. Opulent. I could keep going on.
I knew before our trip began that it would be amazing. After all, it was Thanksgiving weekend, and here we were in Vietnam walking through the doors into the Park Hyatt Saigon! Yet again, I was thinking, is this a dream?
Dave and I spent four days in the bustling city of endless motor scooters known as Ho Chi Minh City. The Park Hyatt was our oasis. As a Hyatt Diamond Gold Passport member (now Globalist World of Hyatt), I used a Diamond Suite Upgrade and we stayed in an exquisite suite. We each had one free anniversary night from the Chase Hyatt Visa card, so two of the nights were entirely complimentary!
The trip only looked expensive. Our flights on American Airlines and Japan Airlines cost roughly about $500 each. Add on the Vietnamese Visa ($80 each), meals and the hotel, and it was totally “affordable luxury.”
The front desk (note the Gauguin style):
I expected a beautiful suite, but our room totally surpassed my expectations. The suite consisted of a large living room area, a small kitchen area, a bedroom, and a dressing room before entering the bathroom.

The bedroom was also beautiful:

Nice view of the pool from our window:
We ate breakfast in the hotel’s Opera Restaurant each morning (see, Park Hyatt Saigon – A Vietnamese Breakfast Fit for Kings).
The hotel also had an exquisite fitness center (see, Hotel Fitness Center Review – Park Hyatt Saigon) as well as a marvelous pool.
I truly loved the Park Hyatt Saigon. My only regret was that I could not stay longer.
