Bai Dinh Hotel is in a remote area that is just stunning. The surrounding sites are stunning and the hotel is very grand (even has old style room keys) and for Americans, very spacious. While it's a pretty traditional look, it's very modern w amenities.
There's a lot of walking to be done, so FYI. The temples and statues and the giant Buddha are gorgeous and an easy walk from the hotel room. But, again, be prepared for a lot of walking and stairs - lots of stairs.
