Wedding Update: Scouting Hotels

While in Ha Nam last week, Huyen and I scouted some hotels for the wedding. As I've been doing some planning for the wedding, I realized it makes more sense for people to stay close to her home the night before the wedding since we'll be going there for the "rehearsal dinner" the night before. Instead of driving more than an hour in unpredictable traffic to and from Hanoi, we can all save time by staying a few minutes away in Phu Ly.

I've come up with something I call "The Brett Test." I think to myself, will my friend Brett be willing to sleep/eat in this hotel/restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel that Huyen and I found and I'm pretty sure it'll pass the Brett test. Brett?

It's got a nice-ish lobby:

Clean beds and bathroom:

And a nice view:

That said, I would suggest bringing your own pillow case. You can buy a new one with the savings since this hotel costs about $15 a night for the suites.
