Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Tuesday, 16 September 2008

The InterContinental Hanoi Westlake has launched a complimentary shuttle service for guests. The new service routes passengers from the hotel to the historic Opera House, to the Vincom Tower, Pacific Place, the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and several other stops in a circuit of the city that takes just over an hour. The first Mercedes Sprinter shuttle leaves the hotel at 7:30am, and then again at 9am, 5pm and 6:15pm. Hotel guests can pick up the shuttle at any of the stops along the route.

The Westlake property opened its doors in December 2007, and is located just 10 minutes from the heart of Hanoi. The waterfront hotel evokes a resort-like ambiance with its torch-lit Venetian promenades and hard-to-find airiness in Vietnams dynamic capital. Balconies jut from each of the hotels 340 rooms and 19 suites, all with singular views of the 500-hectare (1,235-acre) lake, the cityscape or the propertys tropical gardens.

At a 43-square-meter minimum, the InterContinentals guest rooms rank among the most spacious in the city. The rooms indulge the latest in modern technological amenities, with LCD televisions and high-speed Internet access. Each bathroom offers double-basin vanities and both a deep-soaking bathtub and a separate walk-in rain shower cabin.

The hotel whets the appetitive and the thirst with a bevy of dining and lounge options. The hotels Milan and Saigon restaurants sprawl across the entire mezzanine level of the main building as a stylish fusion of contemporary European and rustic Asian aesthetics.

The dining options shift gears at Caf du Lac, a classic brasserie that fronts the expansive lake waters. Referencing the great cafes of Paris, the chic dining venue blends wood, stone and light colors, inspiring a relaxed atmosphere for informal dining.

An icon in the making, the Sunset Bar occupies its own island in a lake. Back inside, the Diplomat Lounge is a spacious, light-filled alternative for a high tea, a glass of wine or an after-dinner cognac.
