The J W Marriott is a great and fabulous hotel in the city center of Seoul. Conveniently located to a big shopping mall and other commercial centers in Seoul. The rooms are great and amenities good. Greta spread in the breakfast as well other buffets. Really like the Deli Shop in the lobby - need to try at least once... More

Attached to the Shinsegae duty free Mall and the subway, JW Marriot Gangnam has a very accessible location. The mall itself is less crowded than Lotte and quite similar with a huge food area basement. The rooms are nice, tidy and comfortable and the hotel itself contain a deli and several restaurants. Took the airport limousine (Bus) to the airport... More

First of all, the location was perfect for us. We had a family member getting treatment at a nearby hospital and this allowed us to visit multiple times a day but it was also a great location for locals to come visit as it is attached to multiple subway lines and the bus terminal. We were traveling with our 3... More

Stayed one night at the hotel on a stop over in Seoul. It is a really nice business hotel, perfectly located adjacent to a large shopping mall. The rooms are very well furnished (stayed on the 33rd floor) and really comfortable; nice, soft bed! There is a good gym, with a vast variety of work out machines. The breakfast at... More

Beautiful Hotel in the heart of Seoul. Outstanding staff (Sylvia and Herra in particular)! Rooms are awesome, the Executive Lounge is the best. The only downside is that there is no decent place to smoke. You must go outside, or sit in a closet at the bars or smoke shop (the smoke shop is also a closet and there's no... More

Hotel is located in an ideal part of Seoul. A big department store, Sinsaegae is attached to the hotel so it was nice to be able to go shopping for anything I needed, without having to leave the property. Our teenage kids were able to go to the mall on their own, being so safe and convenient. Also, the entrance... More

The JW Marriott Hotel in Seoul offers outstanding service. The rooms are particularly comfortable for those who want to work during their stay. While I am willing to spend quite substantial amount of money for the accomodation, I am not willing to consume beverages in this hotel. Considering the price of the overnight stay, food and drink are outrageoulsy expensive.... More

I am a Marriott girl, staying at every franchise at least once. This hotel was recommended to me by my father, brother, and cousin, and they said that it would be an ideal location. They are correct. It is near the bus and subway stations. Central City (a mall) and Shinsegae department store is attached. When I first arrived, there... More

Overall service and accommodation is what you would expect from a multiple star hotel. What I think is totally overpriced is the breakfast buffet at the 2nd floor. To charge KRW 45.0000 or as package deal KRW 35.000 is steep and not justified for what is offered. I would love to see a basic breakfast service option in addition to... More

Just completed four day stay at this property on a very busy business trip.

Located within Central City, Korea's most extensive multi-purpose complex, featuring a prestigious Shinsegae department store, Go-To Mall underground shopping arcade, a large multiplex movie theater and more and with three subway lines directly linked, the JW Marriott Seoul is in many ways the new heart of Seoul. St. Mary’s Hospital and Banpo Hangang River Park lie just a short distance away and the expressway leading to Gyeonggi-do Province, the heart of Korea's semiconductor industry, begins just next to Central City. JW Marriott Seoul is perfect for discerning travelers. Boasting large, luxurious guest rooms and free internet access for Marriott Rewards members, the hotel houses one of Asia’s most comprehensive fitness centers, the Marquis Thermal Spa and Fitness Club, spanning three floors.
