Time ran out as I prepared for a business trip to Asia. I was looking for hotels in the $150 range and wanted something with local character but they were booking up. Atlast, the only options available were in the $250 range, and I was shocked that the Hyatt and Best Western were in the same price range. I explained to my colleague that it was the best option left.
We climbed the hill and slid down into the lobby. Grand vaulted ceilings towered above a bustling lobby full of well mannered, sharp staff. Beautiful flight attendants from the middle east entered passing international business men while the US State Department whisked out in black armored cars. The lobby spills into a dining room and bar where the world relaxed with cocktails to the sounds of a Chanteuse and the twinkling carpet of Seoul glistened below.
We stayed in a club room (the least expensive) and were treated to amazing views of Namsam Mountain Park, which I enjoyed from the most comfortable of beds. The room is a fantastic nest of intersecting lines of wood, a warm and modern design. I ordered a fantastic room service of fresh orange juice, croissants and coffee and enjoyed the comforts of the bed and fantastic view of Seoul before taking a swim in the beautiful indoor pool.
This hotel is fantastic. It has the comforts of a far more expensive accommodation. It has turned me onto to Hyatt Hotels.
