I chose the PJ Hotel for my parents while they visited for a couple weeks in October. We weren't disappointed as the hotel is very nice, clean, and in a good location. There were lots of staff members around all the time, and most were helpful, especially the bellhop out front in helping us get a taxi with our luggage (as for luggage, they have a bag escalator next to the front steps, a nice touch).
They stayed in a double room, with two nice beds, a small tv but good number of channels, decent wifi, balcony and pretty good view. Also a nice espresso maker in the room. The bathroom was nice, but the shower was very short and difficult to stand up in. The location is good for Myeongdong, Insadong, Jongno, and not far from the main temples. It's a little dark around the area at night, but bustling during the day (typical of the center of Seoul), I wasn't worried at all about safety or security in the area. International plugs in the room was nice as well.
A small annoyance was the 'rooftop garden' that was listed in the lobby information and in the elevators. We were expecting at least a few chairs and place to view the city, but once up on the roof we discovered it was totally empty except for a few potted plants in a corner. Maybe because the weather was getting colder, but it seems like it's unsused. Seems like it could be turned into a really nice spot.
Overall, it's a nice hotel but expensive for what you get. You can be sure of a good stay, but if you're budget hunting, keep looking!
