10 Jul 2024

HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM Marriott International, Inc. (“Marriott International”) and Mapletree Investments (“Mapletree”) have signed an agreement to operate the Group’s existing hotel and serviced apartments in District 1 of Ho Chi Minh City, as well as introduce the JW Marriott brand to the city.

The existing hotel will be converted into JW Marriott Hotel & Suites Saigon and the rebranded property is slated to open in September 2024. This marks the brand’s third location in Vietnam, following Hanoi and Phu Quoc. Mapletree will be upgrading the hotel as part of its enhancement plan for its prime asset, mPlaza, in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City. This follows from the completion of the enhancements to the office lobby at mPlaza.

“We are pleased to have Marriott International on board with us to complement Mapletree’s real estate expertise. We aim to deliver exceptional experiences, as well as quality services to our tenants, guests and visitors with the JW Marriott brand,” said Amy Ng, Regional Chief Executive Officer, South East Asia and Group Retail, Mapletree.

“Ho Chi Minh City, a vibrant metropolis and a centre of commerce and culture in Vietnam, is the perfect location to introduce our iconic JW Marriott brand. We are delighted to bring our renowned hospitality to this key market,” said Shawn Hill, Marriott International’s Chief Development Officer, Asia Pacific excluding China. “We look forward to working with Mapletree to introduce the brand’s legacy of extraordinary hospitality, thoughtful design, and enriching experiences to this gateway city.”

JW Marriott Hotel & Suites Saigon is expected to feature a 21-storey hotel tower and a 31-storey serviced apartment tower consisting of one- to three-bedroom apartments, all of which offer panoramic views of the skyline and Saigon River. This central location and diverse accommodation make it the perfect choice for business and leisure travelers, on short or extended stays in Ho Chi Minh City.

Following the rebranding the property expect to feature a range of amenities including a conference space of more than 1,200 sqm and five restaurants and bars. When guests are not busy working or exploring the city, they can unwind in outdoor pools and fitness centres, with each tower offering separate facilities. Meanwhile, the planned Spa by JW will be a haven of wellness with seven treatment rooms, whirlpools, steam rooms and saunas.

Located on the junction of Hai Ba Trung Street and Le Duan Boulevard, JW Marriott Hotel & Suites Saigon is surrounded by major local attractions including Ben Thanh Market, Dong Khoi Street, and Notre Dame Cathedral, and is just six kilometres away from Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat International Airport.

JW Marriott Hotel & Suites Saigon will become Marriott International’s 24th property in Vietnam and the company’s fifth hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, complementing the existing Sheraton, Le Méridien, Renaissance, and Autograph Collection branded properties in the city.
