Le Méridien or Sheraton at Saigon/HCM? LM is 10 minutes walk away from everything else. Is Sheraton the better choice then? Traveling with mom and pop for context.

LM is a very nice property with a great lounge. It's on the river so offers pretty nice views and though it's not in the absolute center of everything, it's super walkable go sites.

Le Méridien is sooooo NICE, get those extra steps

Ooooooh Park Hyatt, just came back from HCMH and it's insane. But since that's not your question, I'd say Le Meriden if location is all you're worried about. The streets behind it have lots of little cafés, etc so it's a pleasant walk and if not, taxis are ridiculously cheap anyway

Thank you everyone!

Yea intercontinental is the best there if you’re looking beyond SPG
