I stayed at JW Marriott, Seoul for a week from 21st October, 2012. Full marks to them in all aspects. Except a small initial hiccup where they assigned me a room with queen bed (despite my file stating a King bed - which they fixed after insisting during check-in) the stay was fantastic. The rooms are awesome with a nice view of the city around you, the staff are very courteous and attentive. I had left my shirt back; they emailed me couple of days after checkout, requesting me to send my address so that they can ship my shirt, And it did arrive today !! A nice gesture by Marriott. However, I do have a suggestion - As a vegetarian, I knew it was going to be tough in Korea. I was hopping that Marriott would have a few choices in their menu which unfortunately was not the case. They could probably add a couple of stuff in their dining menu to satisfy the occasional vegans like me.
Seoul has a unique layout where everything seems to be subterranean - be it shops or cinema halls. The hotel is connected to the Shinshega Mall. It also has a huge number of shops / eateries in the basement and is connected to the Express Bus Terminal Bus Station & Subway Station (3 levels down via escalators). There is a Cinema hall too in the second basement. So essentially you will never be at loss on what to do if you are bored.
