“i have to rethink about how i regard westin. it's surprisingly good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

just returned from a stay there. I like the hotel actually. usually i have my misgivings about the westin brand. it's a weird position, not entirely super luxury, but not cheap either. but this westin has a nice combination, it's luxurious enough to justify the price.
the hotel is handsome and the location is very central and useful for meongdong. very convenient. the reception staffs were faultless and so was the concierge service. They are so eager to help, to the point of the extreme. but that's a good thing if u r demanding.
breakfast was nice. they have good food.
the pool is small, but really nice. i love the vibes there.
the hotel is quite business oriented, so don't expect quiet and tranquility. always lots of people in and out of the hotel, including tour groups.
the room is nice, nothing unexpected there.
i love the korean culture to the max at this hotel. the guys at the door kept bowing each time i walk in and out. never failed. it's quite fun and they are all tall and cute.

Great location--very close to Myeong-dong shopping area. Service was good here except some of the staff could have had better English for those of us non-Korean speakers. In-room dining was a bit of a disappointment (but could have been what I ordered off the menu). Also, their spa had a very limited menu that was disappointing. Otherwise though, very clean, spacious rooms and great attitude from staff.

Westin Chosun in Seoul is very well located in the city center. Staff is highly professional and effective.
Room was spacious, very well equipped and comfortable. The quality of the breakfast has to be highlighted since it was excellent.

The Westin Chosun is one of the best business hotels in Seoul. It's perfect for those who need space, internet connectivity, meeting spaces, full service, restaurant choices and room service. It's expensive, but the rooms are large, the service and location excellent (within walking to the Lotte and Insadong among other places). Skip the "renovated" Lotte rooms and stay here. The health club/spa is amazing so save some time to get in a great work out.

First I chose this because if location. First time with kids, and also Starwood member so it's easy for me to check in. I love their easy check in so I chose this hotel .
Modern building and for my visit I always love to spend time with hotel facility.
Fitness room is quite considering as this is super good location hotel. Not only running And jogging but also lifting and weighting machines are well equipped. I was using waist training and trainer from gym corrected my position. That was nice. Swimming pool is not large but indoor and just for swim purpose . Sauna is not free ( but for executive floor . Free).

They say it's the best hotel and Seoul, and I would add that it's one of the best I have ever stayed in anywhere. The rooms are big, with all the amenities you might need. Food at the hotel is really great, and the staff seem to know what you want before you know what you want - the service is top-notch. Great gym and spa area. The location is very convenient for sight-seeing in Seoul, shopping (right near the Lotte department store) and one of the business districts. Can't say anything bad about this place.

Nice overall stay, with many of the benefits of a western hotel. Rooms are a good size, and beds are comfy. Restaurants are good and the staff is very helpful. They helped me set up a great tour of the DMZ, which was great.
