"Epitome of Hospitality!!!"
I was in Seoul for a business trip for two weeks and had booked Marriott. The name Marriott itself say's a lot about the stay. Right from check in till I checked out the stay was amazing. The breakfast is very delicious and you get to try some local Korean dishes along with the usual English breakfast. The staff is very courteous and always reafy to help. The concierge desk is always up to direct you to your destination around the city. The location of hotel is perfect as it located near Gangnam business area. Also there is Shinsegae location below the hotel and the metro also run from the hotel. It is also closely location from Itaewon the pub district of Seoul.
One of the best hotels I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. All the amenities a person can ask for with top notch guest service. If you need a change of pace from the great hotel dining options, there is a connected high end department store witih multiple restaurants, so you don't even need to leave the property. Traveling around the city is convienent with plenty of taxi cabs and easy access to the subway station below the hotel. I definitely recommend the JW for short or long stays, can't go wrong.
"KGS Annual Meeting^_^"
Wonderful meeting @ JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul, Korea. Amazing lunch set is clean foods and nice. Good English speaking officers and give a great hospitality. Nice conference room with good taste of snacks and red bean green tea cakes.
I was in Seoul for a week on business and loved this hotel. Definitely would stay there again, either for business or pleasure. Room was very spacious, modern and clean. Bathroom had both a shower and tub. Very comfortable bed. Lounge for premium Marriott members that served a full breakfast with an omelet station, and happy hour for 2 hours each night with drinks and snacks. Water and soda available all day along with fruit and other snacks. Lounge is big enough to have a group sit together for impromptu meetings. I was also provided a coupon for breakfast in the main restaurant which offered a very large buffet, all but two days (assume it's to balance traffic so the lounge doesn't get too busy). Multiple restaurants in the hotel, or just walk over to the attached mall area, which has probably 30+ restaurants (many small local Korean restaurants, but a few american chains as well). I preferred the small Korean restaurants, the food was amazing. The hotel gym is amazing, best I've ever visited. Locker room with a small Korean style bath house (hot tub, even hotter tub, cold tub, sauna, steam room). Gym has an indoor track, plenty of cardio equipment, free weights and machines. Also an indoor olympic size pool with more hot tubs, and even an indoor golf range. Rates were very reasonable, staff was friendly.
"Upper end Marriott experience "
Unfortunately only short stay but enough to enjoy a large gym with 25m pool and plenty equipment. Breakfast buffet also with a few special offers and good healthy balance. Rooms have plenty space. Definitely would come here again.
