I have stayed here over 10 times and generally like this hotel a lot. The positives - great rooms, thoughtfully set out and spacious. One of the best bathrooms in any hotel, anywhere (with underfloor heating in winter!) - just make sure that you shut the blinds - hotel is a bit of a fishbowl. Last stay had me nicely upgraded to a corner suite (room 1010) which I would highly recommend for any longer stays. A lot of light and a nice place to spend a few days. Higher floors are better and can be requested.
Food in Cornerstone is very good and I quite like the bar in the basement - both are pricey but good quality and with good service. Service generally in the hotel is very good for Seoul, with staff who genuinely are trying to help and care.
This hotel suffers from one major defect which will impact on my future hotel choice - the elevator system compels you to go to the 24th floor lobby before going taking another elevator to the room (and vice versa when exiting). Combined with the lack of elevators (one of the four now seems dedicated to handicap access) this can result in very long "transit" times which becomes increasingly annoying. This (recent) change in the elevator system is a major step backwards for the convenience of guests (and, I understand, was in response to the hotel getting a bit of a reputation in the market as somewhat of an upmarket "love hotel'. A better approach would certainly have been to have beefed up security at the ground level, not inconvenience all guests.
