Hotel and tour guide/ideas for 1st visit, mobility impaired

Hello,

I am a solo traveling woman coming to Seoul for the 1st time in mid-January (someone please make it warmer). I want to do sightseeing and some shopping and need a hotel very close to transportation. I would ideally like to earn hotel points, any brand. Budget for hotel is $200-250 per night. I was thinking of the Conrad Seoul but haven't seen much about it in the forum. I would also appreciate any tour guide or tour bus recommendations because my ability to walk is very limited.

Thank you in advance for any recommendations.

Afraid Hiltons not ideal for you. Intercontinental Parnas is good for transport but well out of tourist area.

Westin Chosun is good, but probably best located is Lotte , however not good for points.

Westin Chosun and Lotte if you want 4 plus stars.

Ibis Myeongdong for 3 star. Seoul Royal for 3.5 star

Thank you for your suggestions. I decided I want a pool so it is between Westin Chosun, Lotte Hotel Seoul and The Plaza which you had not mentioned. Which of these do you think is best located and nicest hotel?

Lotte is best but out of your price range, I think.

The others, I 've not stayed in. Both get good reviews. Westin Chosun is on the direct Limousine bus route to/from ICN and is very well located.

How are you?

This is Daniel Kim.

I think I can help you with your matters.

If you want some fancy hotel, you may go any 5 stars ones.

But, budget friendly talking, there are many good ones around in Seoul.

Myeongdong area is one good place to consider as location-wise.

You may see Ibis Myeongdong as an 4 stars option and for 5 stars Lotte, The Plaza, the westin chosun..etc. They are all very good either its location and service.

If you need tour guide and private transportation, you can contact me.

Thanks~

Sorry for the delay in my responding. I stayed at the Westin Chosun as many had recommended and was very pleased.

I do appreciate everyone's help.

Thank you.
