The Westin Chosun Busan
Ranked #6 of 187 Hotels in Busan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 17, 2011

I first stayed at this hotel in May 2011. At entry I was very happy at their service, speed of check in process and the looks of the lobby which definitely is excellent. The view of Heaundae beach from the room was amazing. Just standing at the window of the room itself will be enough to satisfy anybody. the room layout and the bed is most comfortable.

The 6 restaurants at the hotel serve delicious food. At the executive lounge the spread of breakfast and evening Wine/drinks and snax during happy hour was very relaxing and enjoying with the beach view. The Gym, swimming pool and sauna are very well organised. The staff at every place is extremely courteous and make the stay more pleasurable.

Just outside the hotel is Heaundae beach where a swim can add much pleasure. Also a walk around the beach with many others doing so is very refreshing and energising. The view of Heaundae Bridge at night is unforgettable.

Having experiencedthe pleasure of stay at Westin Chosun in May, I became a member a of the SPG group and I have come again to stay at the hotel twice in July.

In short I can say that it is one of the best hotels to spend weekends with family with lot of fun for everybody including children who will definitely force to return here once they experience this hotel.

Room Tip: I sugeest to opt for executive room facing the beach. even the other side rooms view facing the Heau...

We were at Westin Busan 3 nights on June 27,28,29. My three boys had a double and single bed room w/ ocean view and My wife and I had a queen room w/ ocean view. We were very happy with location and view of the hotel. Hotel was clean and service was great! Internet was extra. Must check out open markets near hotel.

What can i say, another good Westin Hotel. Located at the end of Haeundae Beach. Staff can speak English, which is very important when travelling in Korea.
The executive club has amazing view of the beach. There is a jogging track nearby,and also a heated indoor swimming pool. The drinks at the lounge is expensive, but i guess it comes with the ambiance. They do have buffet on weekend. Food was ok. Good selection but still geared towards the locals.

There are no reasons not to stay at this hotel. It has the best location on the Haeundae Beach and looks straight down the beach, the decor is classy and the service is is very good. I stayed on the executive floor with harbour, not a beach view, and the outlook was fine.

There are some irritations but not enough to put you off. Although the room is a good size the bathrooms are relatively small and the bath towels are quite thin. I would have expected thick fluffy towels. The free use of the computer in the room is great. The air conditioning is annoying in that the outlet is in the window ledge and when the curtains are closed at night it blocks the air flow out of the outlet.

The other annoyance is that the executive lounge on level 9 where breakfast is served which gets extremely crowded. There are, I think, 4 floors of executive club rooms and the lounge is obviously just too small for all the guests particularly on weekends when the hotel seems to be nearly full.

But overall a nice hotel and Busan was also a pleasant surprise.

Just completed a 3-night stay here in May 2011 and really enjoyed the property. As an SPG Platinum I was upgraded to a beautiful ocean view suite overlooking Haeundae beach. We were also given the priviledge of lounge access. The breakfast in the lounge was excellent. The evening lounge happy hour featured complimentary drinks and appetizers. The lounge staff was extremely friendly and even allowed us to stay almost 30 min after they closed without even saying a word! They were always very attentive and made sure everything was taken care of.

The location at this property is its best feature. An short walk to the beach and a very enjoyable walking/jogging path behind the hotel. I highly encourage anyone staying here to take 30 min to walk through the path (which goes by the APEC center).

The fitness center is large with most of the treadmills having a personal TV. I also used the free weights which offer a good variety.

Overall the service here is excellent, and I have no complains whatsoever in that area. My only compliant is that they offer Milton and not Aveda products in the suites (I would prefer Aveda), but I guess Milton is considered higher quality? Also, they don't offer wireless access, but we were provided a computer to use in the suite. Not sure if standard rooms include the computer, but be sure that you have a ethernet port if you need to use a computer during your stay.

Bottom line we really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return on our next trip to Busan.

This is Westin so no doubt on service, location, quality etc. however, I would like to highlight on hotel location as right in front of beach & great view toward Dongbaek island where you can watch great night view!
I stayed at Executive Club room so had an access to Club lounge with other services...but this was only thing that I do not like! Always packed with people and timid space both Breakfast/Happy hour.
Plus points are Free Nespresso, Free Sauna and Free internet (even PC is equipped in room) but i wanted to relax at lounge so hotel need to fix this otherwise i will not stay at Club floor any more...
Good sleep with Heavenly bed/bath are alway great in Westin!

Nice hotel at end of the beach which leads to a small little island. i like the lobby and the cafe / lounge facing the beach.

Loved the Nespresso machine and free internet. i didnt like the club lounge on the 9th floor as it was very small and there were lots of people in the morning. The breakfast buffet is better @ the ground level.

They also have an Irish bar call O'Kims (found the name weird) which was pleasant.

The club room was simple, i found it a little small... the toilet was really small. It was recently refurbished.
