I'm a big fan of JW Marriott as the service is always impeccable right from the moment I checked in up till the point when I left. Two thumbs up! This is the first time that I'm staying in the JW Marriott in Seoul. I was given a room with twin beds in the 15th floor. View from the room... More

Located south of the river, this Marriott Hotel is about a 20-25 min ride on the metro to Seoul's main attractions north of the river. The Express Bus Terminal next door and the metro station for Line 3 make it very convenient to get around the city without any hassle. getting to the hotel from the airport is easy with... More

This is an excellent city centre hotel. It is conveniently located directly above a metro station (exploring Seoul on foot alone is not possible in a short amount of time) and is next to the city's main bus terminal (buses travel to and from the airport from this terminal). The rooms are spacious and modern. We stayed on one of... More

After considering all of the options and finding the high end hotels to be a bargain in this city (for one who lives in the New York metropolitan area), settled on the JW Marriott for its location, which sits atop a tangle of metro lines as well as the Express Bus Terminal. While not located in the old city, it... More

We stayed in this hotel overnight during a layover. The location is perfect. Across the road from the airport bus stop. There is a mall attached to it; we had dinner a wonderful Korean restaurant. However, the hotel reception was rather aloof and plastic in its interaction with us. We had an executive room. The lounge has good location, but... More

Fine hotel, located in central city. Room was fine. Lounge was fine. Not unfriendly staff, but I would put emphasis on competent and efficient. I checked in at 3am due to late flight. They greeted me by name, and room was ready and waiting for me. I checked out quickly thru the exec lounge. No drama, no surprises, no toothbrush... More

I have stayed here about 10 times and I am never disappointed. The entire property is top notch. The executive lounge keeps you coming back with their amazing staff. The gym is the best I have ever seen and not out of hotels, I mean anywhere. Driving ranges, scuba dive pool, the works.

In the late 90's, I went to Seoul frequently, and the JW was one of my favourites, even over 5-star hotels (like its cousin the Ritz-Carlton or the Shilla). Going back, I remember why: Its breakfast buffet is world-class, with different cuisines, far better than those at higher-category hotels in North America and Europe. Its fitness center (open to outside... More
