Stayed here with a friend and we had two rooms -- one Studio Suite and one regular room. Both rooms were appointed in the typical W standard -- modern, fun furnishings. The studio suite was very large, including a round bed, large tub and walk-in shower room with multiple shower heads. The regular room was of a good size and featured a nice bathroom with soaking tub and comfortable bed. Public areas of the hotel were also typically "W" -- a great lobby, excellent restaurant and shops on the main level.
The shuttle service to the subway was helpful given the hotel's out-of-the-way location. Even though the hotel was a bit far from everything, transportation options were plentiful and there were always taxis when needed. The airport bus also left from just outside the hotel.
The staff at the hotel were amazing. Friendly and always willing to help, but never intrusive. The breakfast buffet was outstanding and the views from the restaurant were great.
The two downfalls for me would be the cost of items in the lobby bar (I mean, US$14 for a latte, really?) and the charge for internet (just about US$18 for 24 hours).
Overall, I would stay again when back in Seoul.
