This trip was my 3rd trip to Seoul and my first time staying at Park Hyatt. I find the staff at Park Hyatt to be the most friendly and fluent in English. They are willing to go above and beyond to make sure your stay is a pleasant one. And the room was the best! The high ceiling lends even more spacious feeling - a big feat for a city crowded with people and constant traffic. Once you step into the room, it really feels like an oasis with tranquility. I took the advice of previous reviewers and requested a quiet room. My room faced away from the busy intersection so while the view was somewhat sacrificed, I was not bothered by all the commotion below from the street.
Two things that irked me are the limousine service from the airport and quirky elevator system. KAL limo service (which worked great during my last trip to Seoul) claims a stop at Park Hyatt. In reality, it stops across the street and I ended up having to drag my luggages across a busy intersection - not what I had in mind after a 14 hour flight. Later the front desk informed me that I could have gotten off at an earlier stop (@InterContinental) and take a cab. Hyatt reimburses the cab fare. Wish i knew! Hopefully it would benefit others who are planning to take a shuttle service to the hotel. The other item was the elevator. They have separate elevator banks so whenever I come into or leave the hotel, I need to go to the lobby on 24th and then take another elevator to my room or outside. Supposedly it was done to alleviate wait time but I found it more cumbersome.
All in all, Park Hyatt is a superb hotel especially for business travelers. For sightseeing, I think there are other more centrally located hotels in Seoul. But the room and service at Park Hyatt are unparalleled.
