Well, actually, I'm not sure if you should go there in skiing season either.
Once upon a time, I'm sure that the Phoenix Hotel & Condo was the best that Korea had to offer. It has the all signs of being a luxury hotel at the top of the scale. But unfortunately, the hotel has not been well maintained and it now worn down and unappealing. Everywhere you see small damages, teared wallpaper, blotches on ceilings, elevator buttons not working etc. etc.
If they had modernized the hotel a little bit once in a while it could be a great place, and I'm sure that once it was.. However, that time has passed and it does not receive my recommendation.
In skiing season it might be a nice place, can't say, but in summer/autumn time it's not.
Furthermore, it's hard to get here and shopping/dining options are almost non-existent, especially if you dislike Korean food, your only option is to eat overpriced (and overcheesed) Domino's pizzas.
The best part about Phoenix hotel, this time of year (autumn), is the nice autumn foliage. For a few hiking trips, it may be a good place, but don't come here for the hotel or dining options.More
