Accor has signed a management contract for a new hotel in Vietnam. The 350-room Novotel Saigon Centre is to be built in District 1 in city centre and is scheduled to open in 2012.

The Novotel Saigon Centre will be located on the site of the current Metropole Hotel, a well-recognised part of the Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) landscape. This highly visible location is steps from Ben Thanh Market and on the road connecting the market (Tran Hung Dao) to China Town. The hotel is surrounded by trendy retail and commercial buildings.

The Novotel Saigon Centre will feature 2 restaurants, a street bar, roof level Executive Club lounge, outdoor swimming pool and kids pool, fitness centre, business centre, Web Corner on a Mac and 900 square metres of flexible event space. The 24-storey hotel will offer views of the city and Saigon River. The guestrooms will adopt the latest innovations of the Novotel brand, including concept guestroom lighting, modern interiors and surfaces, 32-inch LCD television, and plug and play connectivity panel.

Novotel Saigon Centre will be one of the first hotels in Vietnam to incorporate louvers into the faade of the building, which by shading the building will improve energy consumption. The hotel is being designed by Kume Sekkei Architecture firm of Japan.

The Que Huong Liberty Group today owns 7 hotels in Ho Chi Minh City and intends to develop more hotels in the coming years throughout Vietnam.

Currently in Vietnam, Accor operates 11 hotels including four Novotel hotels Novotel Phan Thiet Ocean Dunes and Golf Resort, Novotel Nha Trang, Novotel Dalat and Novotel Halong Bay.
