I was lucky enough to stay at this hotel during a three week business trip. From the pre-arranged pick-up from the airport, through the 3 week stay, to the ride back to the airport I could not have been happier with the facilities. As a Marriott Gold member I received a free upgrade. My room was very well appointed, they... 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.

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

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

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.
