The bus from Incheon airport drops you off right in front of the hotel. The location is great because the subway trains are a block away. The hotel is attached to at least two malls so it is great for food and shopping. The food hall underneath the Shinsegae department store is fabulous! There is also a grocery store attached where you can buy necessities in addition to groceries. There is plenty of shopping all conveniently attached to the hotel, and luxury stores like Louis Vuitton, Prada, etc. are aplenty.
I thought the hotel front desk was very accommodating, and they all spoke English. The maids were all smiles every morning! The room is very clean and modern with free WiFi and free bottles of water daily. The health club is nice and clean, too. The buffet-only breakfast is very good, although I wished for an a la carte offer since $30 for breakfast is a bit much for every morning. This is my only negative comment about the hotel. They really should have offered other breakfast/dining options as every meal is buffet only.
Overall, this hotel was excellent! It is supposed to be a Courtyard but it did not seem like it AT ALL. Instead, it is equivalent to a much higher level class of hotel. I would strongly recommend this hotel to any traveler to Seoul, especially for the ones who are used to the convenience of big cities where they can freely walk to any place they want to.
