“Wow, this is a Courtyard?”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Modern, sophisticated, even a little bit stylish and a little bit luxurious - not qualities I would normally associate with a Courtyard. It definitely feels a few brand levels higher, which is accentuated by the fact that it basically sits on top of a Louis Vuitton store. Good value for money. The 24/7 gym is one of the best and most comprehensive gyms you will find in a hotel. The executive lounge is small but has most of what you need. The staff were excellent with the Platinum treatment. Easy access to and from the airport (Incheon) on the 6008 bus. It works well for me for a Seoul stopover.

We stayed at this location right after it opened. We stay there now on our annual Christmas trip to Korea. We find the location to be good with a subway station, great food of every variety and a large shopping complex near by. The rooms are ok but small to U.S. standards. The staff is always helpful and do their job with a smile. The breakfast are good and the business center has everything we need. I do have a problem with Marriott's policy of charging for y-fi. They should enter the 21 century and offer this free of charge. It is a shame they gouge you at a Marriott but include y-fi at the Courtyards. I suppose if enough people brought this up........

Level 1 main entrance; Level 4 24hr Gym/Fitness Centre; Level 5 Lobby & Cafe Momo (the only F&B outlet in hotel).

Receptionist could have been friendlier. It could be language barrier but the attitude of certain reception staff is rude, Otherwise reasonable service from all other staff including those in breakfast area.

Hotel room are modern and clean. Good presentation.

Lobby lift to Level 1 main entrance also connect to Level B1 (direct access to Time Square). However, note that E-mart is no longer operating 24hours from 15 Dec 2012. New opening hours is from 9am to 12midnight. No access to B1 after 10pm. One has to walk out of hotel and turn left and access to E-mart throught main entrance of Time Square.

Go out of hotel and turn right and walk for 5 minutes and you will come to a lively district with all the local street food stall and further down the road more restaurants and pubs full of locals.

Would be ideal if hotel could have an outlet for a drink or snack even after hour.

Rooms are of adequate size, Beware that amenities like toothbrush/toothpaste/shaver in drawer are for sale and not complimentary. Travelling with a group and few rooms had their bathroom blind falling. Could use better fixture. As of previous reviews, the bathroom is separated from the bedroom by a glass wall so the rolling blinds come handy sometime.

Quite an experience walking on the back lane where you find local red light district with glass windows and professionals displaying themselves to potential clients.

Cafe Momo could get really busy when there are big groups movement or few tour groups having breakfast at the same time. It does offer a good mix of both western and korean style breakfast. However, would appreciate if they could change the dishes on daily basis.

New hotel, good location as connected to the shopping mall. We can walk to supermarket and convenient store nearby at night easily.

Abundant buffet breakfast to choose. free wifi only provided at the lobby otherwise you have to pay for it. If travel with group tour, ask your local guide to negotiate for free wifi in room

Stayed here for my first trip to Korea. Several plus points:

1. Convenient, it is near the Yeungdongpo station. You just have to walk through its underground shopping center to get to it.

2. Is on top of a huge shopping mall. So you have restaurants, cafes, supermarket and shopping at your reach.

3. Its near Yeungdongpo Market. Its a traditional market with some nice food, although it mainly sells fresh seafood and meat.

No problem with internet. Just have to tell them you are Mariott Rewards member and they will activate the free one for you.

The front desk and also the service line was very polite and helpful.

hotel is nicely located at a large shopping mall. rooms are ok.
TV is awful, very outdated.
The internet experience was even worse. Had problems to connect my laptop and my iPhone. They offer a Marriott REwards free service but it only offers paid services. When asking the reception they stated "we will not charge you at check-ou". All in all very confusing. Called the helpdesk and the person activiated my iPhone mac address and then it worked. Time for upgrading the technical infra is needed.
