Very comfortable and nicely furnished apartments in financial district. However very expensive and public areas and restaurants lacking in atmosphere. There are a few restaurants nearby and a large new mail just opened down the road. Colleagues stayed in the nearby Courtyard Marriot which was a lot better value and closer to the action.

I love staying at the Marriott Exec Apartments - the extra space is something every traveler loves after a long week on the road. Throw in the included laundry machine and it is just like home. A wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: You will want a room away from the road if you are a light sleeper (away from the River).

We had a studio with kitchen, laundry, beautiful marble bathroom and a roll away. All rooms are non smoking even though it is not stated in the website.

Initially, I was hesitant in my reservation due to its cost. I thought $350/ night with tax and 10% service charge for 13 days was a bit high compared to comparable places like Oakwood Premier at Coex. Internet connection and breakfast were extra $100/ week and $24( not incl tax & service) daily, respectively. However, the place is definitely recommended for families and business travellers alike for the following reasons.

First, room and amenities:

1. Kitchen is well equipped. All you need is groceries. After a day of sight seeing, fun but tiring, last thing kids want to do is sit at restaurants to eat. It's nice to eat simple food, chilling with TV, and rest for next day at home like environment.

2. Miele laundry is convenient. I pack extremely light, just a carry-on and backpack for each of us, for 14 days of travel, all the way from Boston MA. Laundry every other day worked out very well.

3. Place looks just like pictures on their website, no misrepresentation what so ever... New, clean, state of the art room with electric adapters built in and iPod docking, great rain shower, relaxing tub, beautiful 25m lap pool and amazing work out facility. This Hotel even has 2 trek bikes ( adult size) for free use.

Second, location:

True, this hotel is not in the heart of most tourist sights. Rather, it is located in the midst of banks and National Assembly. But, it is just few blocks from 3 metro stations ( line 1, 5, 9) which means you can get just about anywhere with a single transfer at the most. And if you go far, you can take an express car as one of the station is a transfer station for line 5 & 9. It is also one of the few stations that was staffed all the time which was most helpful.

Some of the places we convieniently got to within about 30 minutes were National Museum, National Children's Museum, National Folk Museum, War Memorial, USO for DMZ tour, start point for City Tours, Insa Dong(souvenir shopping), and Chunggae Chun. Within about an hour were Lotte World, Coex Aquarium, Gwachon National Science Mueum, Seoul Land and Zoo. One thing to note is that traffic is very heavy in Seoul so taking taxi doesnt get you anywhere faster.

It is also located next to Yeoido Park where you can rent a bike (ample choice for all) to ride along paved exercise paths along the Han River. It was absolutely beautiful, relaxing and fun for our family. There is also a water park on the river for children which was great for a down day.

Third, people:

One of the most amazing thing about Seoul is the people and at this hotel was no exception. Just about everyone was able to help us in English with warmth. Couple of the people who provided notable service were restaurant managers Leeny and Mr Pang, and one of the van driver. One word of caution, while friendly, concierge isn't exactly most knowledgeable when it comes to tourism. They provide good business support, arranging transportation, bills, calls, groceries, etc. but not for helping you book organized tours/transportations to go to DMZ, Everland, Folk Village in Suwon, etc. I found concierge desk at Marriott Timesquare to be more helpful for that type of task.

Final thought:

I would visit this hotel again but wish they would include either Internet, breakfast or local calls in the package. While I really really liked my 13 day stay at this hotel and would stay again, I felt for some reason, more value at the Atlantis, Bahamas and Four Seasons at Hualalai, Big Island, Hawaii which are definitely not cheap places at all.

Room Tip: 2 adults and 2 children under 12 stayed in studio. We were comfortable. There are no bad rooms, I...

Just perfect. Room is modern, large, bathroom is big, with bath tub and rain shower, larger mirror. XXL flat TV, Bose sound system, iPhone docking station, very comfy bed. Internet wired or wifi is available for 100,000 won for 7 days. Paul French bakery near lobby, one Italian restaurant in the basement. Only minus is off location, away from city center. For me, due to nuclear summit in march, it translated into 30-40mins taxi ride in terrible Seoul traffic. Office neighborhood, so not really happening for dinner. But that's about it, much better than most hotel I've stayed at.

We stayed here for two nights when we were in Seoul. Two nights was not enough. It was the best hotel I have ever stayed in so far.

The reception was very helpful. All can speak English very well. That's what you need when your in a foreign country where English is not their first language.

The rooms are super big! All rooms come with washing machine, dryer, coffee maker, utensils and practically everything you need for a family.

The beds are super comfy. You feel like your in heaven.

Toilets are perfect. Rainforest shower, cupboards to put your make up.

iPod dock was also provided. TV had good channels!

Overall=BEST HOTEL EVER!

Room Tip: The floors don't matter! Choose corner rooms. Bigger!

I've stayed in JW Marriott most of my trips to Seoul. They are located right above the subway and bus station and easy to get around. I wanted to try a new place a came across Marriot Executive apartments. I stayed here before but the location was inconvenient so I kept going back to JW. The executive apartment is so nice that I am willing to deal with the inconvenience. You will know what I mean when you stay there. I can't describe it using just words.
