Having stayed several times at the Intercontinental Seoul COEX now, I can say that each stay has been uniformly great. Friendly staff, good service, exceedingly clean & modern rooms, and an excellent fitness club on-site make this a great choice when doing business in Seoul, particularly if you have business on the south side of the river.
For travel to the hotel from the airport, it is easy to take the Korean Airlines Limo Bus which will drop you off literally in the front of the hotel. Be sure to specify Intercontinental COEX when you buy your ticket, as there is another Intercontinental (Grand) just around the corner, and you don't want to end up there. Also note that there are two COEX stops, and you want to tell the helpful bus limo porters at the airport that you want the hotel (they'll know).
Rooms were recently re-done and are very comfortable with excellent quality bedding.
Only complaint would be the high price for the breakfast & lunch buffets, as well as snacks in-room -- beware the $70 lunch! It is better to get the breakfast included in the room rate as it will be less than the $40+ that the breakfast will cost you a la carte. That said, it is an extensive and healthy (or not!) buffet that exceeds most in this price range, every day of the week. Again, this can be a boon to the business traveler looking to fill up in the morning before a long day in Seoul.
