This was the perfect hotel for our recent girls' trip to Seoul. The transport from the airport was easy (used a taxi service, as it was cheaper), the location was great and the concierge was very knowledgeable, helpful and polite. We didn't have any language issues as most staff, including taxi drivers spoke moderate to very good English. We are... More

This is a hotel that was probably amazing when it opened up, but what existed when we stayed was a cheesy hotel that was in bad need of a remodel - but for luxury hotel prices. While it does have luxury stores, if you've stayed in proper luxury hotels you'll cringe when you see the rooms, bathrooms, etc... In addition... More

Though I've stayed a few times at the Conrad Seoul, I have come back to the JW Marriott Seoul for this trip and it feels like coming home.

It is always a pleasant surprise when your expectations are exceeded and mine certainly were staying at this hotel. The room was large, the bed and pillows super comfy.

Spent a week at this hotel on the south side of the river over the new year. It abuts a large department store "Shinsegae" and a very large underground subway full of shopping. Easy access by taxi to anywhere never more than 9000kw about US$9. Good size rooms and service was first class. We dined at two of their restaurants... More

Rooms are spacious. Breakfast spread is a bit limited. The good thing is that the Hotel is in a central location. Check in pretty fast. There is a large express bus station internally connected to the hotel having variety of shops and eating joints. Vegetarian fare is very limited.

The other reviews are correct. Room is large and luxurious. Staff is warm and eager to solve any problem. However. The restaurants on property are so expensive, it's shocking. A drink in the lobby bar is $25. Breakfast for 1 person $50 (not the buffet) not including coffee. Lunch almost $100. There are restaurants nearby, but I was in a... More
