JW Marrriott Gangnam is an excellent business hotel choice in Seoul, it has it all.
JW Marriott has all the amenities of Marriott, plus the extra JW luxury. It offers one of the most amazing breakfast spreads I’ve ever seen anywhere in the Café @ JW, and it has a huge health club and Marquis Spa to energize and get you ready to take on Seoul! And it’s right above three major subway links, and the splendid Shinsegae Department store!
The Gangnam /Central City location is trendy and makes for some great local top quality restaurants and bars. If you want to be in with the in crowd, visit the zen-like but chic makgoelli craft watering hole, Mui Mui. JW Mariott is located above a major Subway and Bus station so great for getting around Seoul fast (often faster than taxi, traffic can be wearying in Seoul). One additional perk that I loved, JW Marriott is right above a huge fabulous luxury department store, Shinsegae, which is ideal getting those amazing last minute Korean gifts to bring home for family or co-workers.
Enjoy the waters at the Marquis Spa
Covering over three levels of the hotel, the Marquis Thermal Spa and Fitness Club offers a huge variety of health facilities, including a natural therapeutic pool drawing mineral rich hot spring water from 2,000 feet below the hotel! There are lap pools, over 150 exercise machines, a climbing wall, scuba pool, 22-tee indoor golf driving range, a 280-foot jogging track, squash court, steam room and sauna, and a spa restaurant. You could spend several days just at the spa! Certainly an ideal facility to relax after a long work day!
A Healthy Start
Breakfast at the Café @ JW had one of the largest variety of options I’ve ever seen anywhere. From traditional Korean Hanwoo beef soup and bulgogi, to Japanese, Continental and American Breakfast. There were all manner of health friendly choices as well, like fresh fruits, porridge, yogurts, muesli, and egg-white omelettes. Healthy choices are appreciated after a day of fast food or a long night out with business colleages. There was considerable effort to use and celebrate local ingredients, like the in-season field mushrooms. There are a number of dining and drinking options to suit any taste. And if you just want to chill in the evening after work, enjoy a cocktail at the Exchange Bar.
Work hard, relax, enjoy! Oppan is Gangnam Style!
JW Marriott Hotel Seoul was a fun and elegant place to stay in Seoul. I’d go back in a heartbeat!
