Normally when I think of a Courtyard, I think of a nice, clean, well run hotel, that while very good, is not necessarily the ultra top of the line. When passing through Seoul a couple times last month on business, I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It had much of the polish one would expect from a top of the line hotel, definitely above what I have experienced from Courtyards here in the states. Staff were very polite, helpful, and friendly. The front desk and Concierge staff had very good English, which was a big help. Rooms were a bit small, but the way they were laid out, they were very efficient and had the feel of a larger room. Our group had to rush a bit to get to Icheon Airport, and one of the Concierge staff members went above and beyond (what I have experience here in the states) to make sure we got the required transportation. Definitely would stay here again.

Very close to Yeongdeungpo station, food street next door, mall, emart in the mall and bus no. 6008 from Icheon International and Gimpo to the hotel. Bus charge 9000 won from Icheon and 4000 from gimpo. The staff was very friendly, especially Mr. Kevin. Good Concierge directions etc. I stayed here on Marriott Points, hence go early check in and late check out. Otherwise the hotel is a little to pricey. I will stay here again if I am back in Seoul.

Very nice hotel in the good location very near the shopping malls,tube and taxis.Very quiet.Very good service and very helpful and polite staff. I highly recommend this hotel.
When checking in they give you card with the hotel name and the address in English please ask for the card also in Korean as it becomes handy when you use taxis.Not many people outside the hotel speak English.

Room Tip: Would come back any time. .

Rude front desk personnel when I asked for wifi access. In this time and age, it is normal for hotel of Marriot's caliber to provide complimentary wifi access. Not only was it for a fee, but the mere act of me asking about wifi access without even mentioning the word "complimentary" somehow irked the front desk personnel to the point of retorting back with a snotty..."so?"

Fantastic stay, staff were always friendly and willing to help. Concierge people were great in booking local events. Called them whilst out of the hotel at Everland theme park and they helped to us call a tour operator to confirm the return bus pickup time. Will stay here again !

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.

Room Tip: Stay in a room facing the outdoor urban garden. You have views of the mountains and the Seoul skyli...
