A magnificent hotel in a rather quiet district. The sky view room offered a perfect view on the square and reminiscent of the wall. The executive lounge serves nice breakfast with a large selection including fresh fruits. We would definitely stay here again.

Quite a unique hotel with modern design located in Dongdaemun Square Seoul with a beautiful view of the great East Gate. A very different ambiance from the JW Marriott Seoul as when you walk out of the hotel, you will see lots of small shops wherein you can bargain and plenty

Hotel is beautiful but not 5 stars. When I arrived they informed me that the double bedroom was not available and that only a king bed was available. But that they could upgrade me to a suite. This was clearly not true as the hotel was not booked solid. In fact, the hotel

This was the best and most personal experience we’ve ever had in a Marriott, or for that matter, any hotel. Exquisite design of our room, and outstanding service. If you have access to the executive lounge, it has by far the best food and drinks we’ve ever had. Love this hotel!

I am not sure which suite you are referring to unfortunately. The one with 2 rooms should be okay though. 2 people sleep in the bed while 1 adult sleeps on the couch. The toddlers may be able to sleep with the 2 adults in the same bed, but it may be a little tight. I would ask the hotel potentially!

No. Everything has changed. You have to be platinum to get free lounge upgrade unless you booked a room with lounge access.
