The Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers will be renamed the Sheraton Saigon Grand Opera Hotel from April 1, marking a new era for one of the most prominent 5-star hotels in Ho Chi Minh City.

The name change is a tribute to the iconic Saigon Opera House, a landmark historical building which is near the hotel.

Its original name, Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers, refers to its two towers, including the Main Tower comprising 379 newly renovated rooms since 2020 and characterised by Vietnam’s national lotus flower habitat, and the Grand Tower with 106 world-class standard studios and suites with spacious rooms since its conversion in 2008.

The new name inspired by the combination of Opera House and the Grand Tower  building which is planned for major renovation from 2024.

The new name, combining 'Opera' and 'Grand', reveals its new positioning, especially with the upcoming renovation of the Grand Tower, an elevated luxury-centric design that will highlight the inspiration drawn from the Saigon Opera House.

General manager Julian Wong said, "The Opera House is one of Ho Chi Minh City's greatest landmarks with its magnificent French architecture. The new hotel name was chosen due to the Opera House's influence on the Grand Tower’s new interior design elements. Renovations will start in the fourth quarter of this year and are expected to be completed by 2025."

He added, "Sheraton Saigon Grand Opera Hotel continues to be the gathering place for global travellers and local patrons alike with its reputation for exemplary service, and the new Grand Opera luxury guest rooms will combine the charming characteristics of Ho Chi Minh City with world-class Marriott service."

Opened in 2003, Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers has provided the finest hospitality in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City for over two decades and has set benchmarks for world-class premium hotel accommodation in Vietnam. With its new name, the Sheraton Saigon Grand Opera Hotel continues that legacy.

The Sheraton Hotels brand, Marriott International’s most global brand, with its rich history and iconic presence in the hospitality industry, remains a symbol of excellence, trust, and as a gathering place for international and local guests.
