Stayed in one of the executive rooms (20th floor) which provides separate check in / check out service. Rooms were a bit more pricey this time around (~$300/night) due to several conventions in Seoul at the time and a last minute booking. Rooms are not as modern as in many other Gang Nam hotels, but I am still surprised at how clean and comfortable the rooms are. The service and professionalism at the hotel continues to be second to none in Seoul. Staying in the executive room provide complementary breakfast and happy hour on the 20th floor, but not access to the main morning buffet on the main floor. Did not have a chance to use the spa on this trip, but it is usually good. Location is serene, on top of a hill, but others should note that you really need to call a taxi if you want to go anywhere (although taxis are still very cheap in Korea - often between $3 - $10 for a trip, rarely over $10 even if traveling for over 30 min).
