EXEMPLARY SERVICE AND GREAT LOCATION
Absolutely perfect location for seeing the sights in Seoul in the middle of all the palaces and a few blocks from the metro.
Service is fantastic with smiles and friendly helpful personnel rivaling the service provided in Starwood Thailand hotels (and that’s saying something in my opinion).
SPG Platinum recognition is fantastic as well. Large lounge with extended hours for you to enjoy beer, wine, alcohol and excellent food. It can be dinner if you so choose. Large spread and different every single night. Upgraded to Junior Suite mid-stay (as soon as one became available). Platinums can also enjoy free buffet breakfast in Aria (or the lounge). The buffet breakfast in Aria is a huge spread and will serve all type/appetites.
Gym is super large and airy. Pool is a bit crowded as it’s set up as a lane pool so more for exercise than lolling about.
The only negatives re this hotel are two-fold:
1- The rooms are older but are in well kept condition. If you’re expecting brand new modern rooms you’ll be disappointed.
2- The biggest issue I had with this hotel is the door quality. It is thin and allows for significant hallway noise to enter the rooms. Initially I was placed in a corner room so the noise was kept to a minimum as the only time someone needed to be in front of my room was when housekeeping cleaned the room across from me (which only happened 1x per day). However, my Junior Suite was right next to the elevator bank and this is when I noticed the door/noise issue. Not only do you hear everyone walking by (guests, cleaning crew, etc.) you also hear the elevator ding which is set to a terribly high volume. It goes off all night and day. Personally I would never choose a room near the elevators again.
However, other than this I truly enjoyed my stay here and would recommend this hotel.
