I had a memorable time here. Nothing bad I can say about JW Marriot Dongdaemun. First of all, location is conveniently right next to a subway station. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby. As soon as you enter the lobby, you’ll be greeted by their wonderful staff on-site. They will even guide you towards the elevators as soon as you’re checked in. I wanna give a big shout-out to Ruby for doing an exceptional job welcoming guests with open arms, and making us feel comfortable right from the get go. I also enjoyed the ‘happy hour’ up on the 11th floor, the breakfast buffet, and the swimming pool. The room was spotless clean, TV has surround-sound system installed, and the bathroom has great amenities. I only wish this hotel had a gym/fitness center, though.

Location is also good right in front of Dongdaemun with market, City Wall Trail and Iwha Mural Village. ​ Software: Good. I could feel the changes a lot. Due to the crowded check-in process on weekend, the pre-check-in by phone call (questions needed at check-in and requests on what I need) on the previous day and mobile check-in process was nice and smooth. (Special thanks to Jessica for her top notch service. I could figure out everything and get usuful support upon checking-in already). Room condition, Club Lounge, F&B (especially dinner at BLT Steak and Breakfast at Tavolo 24) were also wonderful. The kindness and attentiveness of staffs were real JW Style!

The JW Marriot in Dongdaemun Square is a very nice location right across from the East Gate. Make sure to get a room that has a view of the Gate for a great nighttime view. Plenty of things to walk around and see around this JW, go out and explore the street markets all around the Gate. Excellent Steak restaurant a the JW as well as a very nice executive lounge. During non-pandemic times there is also a great rooftop bar to enjoy.

Our stay at JW Marriott Dongdaemun became perfect as soon as we met Justin Lee at The Griffin. He was not only nice and funny, but his kind and gentle personality truly made our stay enjoyable! He tailored every single drinks we got the way we wanted and my aunts and I will never forget the time we had there, thanks to Justin!
