The hip twin to the neighboring Sheraton Walker Hill, the W-Hotel is clearly the hip younger sister, lots more fun, style and with pizazz to boot. We stayed for a 1 night staycation over the holiday, and what a great respite. We were pleasantly surprised by the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff, particularly our waiter at the Namu Japanese... More

I've stayed at many W hotels throughout the world and I was looking forward to checking this one out. The entrance, lobby, and elevators were very cool. Our room (River View) was ok, the white and red decor were interesting, but not really my taste. The service at this hotel was excellent. Yes, they are a bit out of the... More

It was an amazing hotel. Great for business and having a rest in between travels/meetings. It is located a bit far from the airport but in a nice location with river views. Service was amazing, hotel is beautiful and very very trendy. I definitely recommend staying there more than one night and enjoy that area of Seoul.
