The hotel itself, can keep it 5 star service (not too busy with environment noise) even is near a mall. Staffs very friendly, breakfast spread is quite decent, love... More

Arriving from a red eye flight, I was warmly greeted by the doormen and check-in staff who gave an early check-in at 8am. The room was fabulous and clean, with a good size bathroom and a wonderful bed. I wish I could stay for another night. And to my surprise (I never revealed nor spoke about my birthday to any...

Switched from Sheraton palace to here - glad we did. Modern, high end comfortable room. Very nice lobby and concierge, with a great desert place. Also attached to a major shopping mall and main train station, would definitely stay here again next time back in Seoul.

Super convenient location as there is a subway station called "Express Bus Terminal station" for three lines (Line 3, 7 and 9), bus stops for local lines as well as Long distance intercity lines right next to this hotel. Also huge shopping complex and undergrad shopping street so you do not need to go out to do all. Really convenient... More

This hotel in some ways is typical of Seoul's five-star offering: a huge overarching lobby area with integrated lounge bar and several restaurants on the level below the ground floor. The style is opulent and visually interesting, although perhaps just a little conservative and "big hotel lobby" in style. My room was comfortable & well appointed. I am guessing that... More

Nice hotel, good meeting rooms but very expensive food and beverage. We went for the hotel buffet which was nice, it had everything from snow crab legs, to sushi, steak and a nice desert and ice-cream area. We didn't check the price but was just as amazed over the bill as the food. 4 x buffet, 3 beers and a... More

Not having been 'Marriott people' or fans, we came here for four nights vacation based on Tripadvisor reviews. Yes, it is fabulous. Personal attention and care, modern super clean rooms, excellent food, great location for sightseeing and shopping. We stayed on Executive floor which was really not necessary but nice.
