The JW marriott is centrally located to most of everything in Seoul. As a hotel it's extremely comfortable and the service is exceptional! Rooms are sizeable and the food options for both in-room and restaurant are plentiful. To me the highlight was the gym. It has to be one of the most comprehensive gyms I've ever seen in terms of...

The hotel's close proximity to Shinsaegae Dept Store and Famille Station meant there was never any shortage of places to eat and shop. Our river view room was spacious, spotless, quiet and the beds were comfortable. The Executive...

I hail from Western Canada.. and to beam into Seoul was a bit of culture shock. Not 'the culture' but the shear numbers and concentration of people! The JW Marriott was an oasis.. very welcome.. after a long flight. Check in superb.. very attentive, not 'phoney'.. Exec floor worth every penny. Met some very interesting people there.

choosing between the bars in the hotel for an evening drink was actually quite difficult, because like the rest of the hotel, the atmosphere is that cold and functional 90s vibe. Settling in the second floor bar overlooking the lobby, one couldn't help feel thinking about the late 80s to early 90s. The hardware of the hotel isn't crumbling at...
