When venturing to Busan to visit family, it was only fitting that we stayed in the hotel my partner's grandmother used to stay when visiting from the States. Though those stays occurred some 30 years earlier, the Westin Chosun Busan didn't disappoint. With the exception of suitable drawer space, the rooms were well-appointed and pleasantly decorated with sweeping views of... More

Stayed for ten days in the VIP floor, where the lounge had morning bkft and early evening snacks. The only Haeundae hotel in Busan right on the beach. Plenty of shops and restaurants along the beach with the Sea Life Aquarium being a 10 minute walk and the local street market a 15 minute walk away.

When i arrived in my room with my wife we saw hairs on the bathroom floor. We notified the front desk showing the pictures of the hairs and the staff told us that he will take care of it while we were out for dinner. When we came back from dinner, the hairs were still on the floor uncleaned. The... More

Nice hotel for vacation or business. Rooms are business standard I would say. Good service. I got an upgrade because I am frequent user of Sheraton. When you get a room on the VIP floor, you get access to a special lounge where you can have quiet breakfast. Gym is very well equiped, most of machines facing the beach and... More

My family and I stayed here for 2 nights and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. You walk out the back of the hotel to the beach!

When you wake up you directly see the ocean and the beautiful heundae beach. Rooms are clean and spacy, hotel is very luxurious and the open buffet as expected is almost perfect. Although considered a business hotel i suggest honey mooners to spend at least one day here.

The Westin occupies a great spot at one end of the famous Haeundae Beach and adjacent to scenic Dongbaek Park, from which you can get great views back to the city and out to the waters and islands.

The Westin Busan is perfectly located on the beach and they upgraded us to the Ocean front room being an SPG gold member. The outside of Westin visibly looks much nicer than the inside.
