Normally I stay at the Millennium Hilton in Seoul, so I was a bit dejected when there was no availability there, and I turned to the Grand Hilton. I was beyond pleasantly surprised. Overall, I was overjoyed at the level of service and comfort at this property.
I was staying on Hilton points, and they put me right up on the Executive Level. As pointed out, the hotel has a very convenient van service that hits several points downtown and terminates (starts its trip back) in Itaewon. True, the Grand Hilton is rather remote, but in Sunday morning, early traffic, it's a 10 minute ride to Seoul Station in a taxi.
When we returned from our jaunt to Namdaemun Market, the staff had provided me with a complimentary bottle of wine and hors d'oeuvres, which were waiting in my room. The Executive Lounge was extremely comfortable, civilized, and (compared to the Millennium) not packed with US Government Contractors and boisterous Americans. The spread was phenomenal. Breakfast was equally up-to-task.
As for quality of rooms....pretty much standard for this hotel class in Seoul. Expensive internet, flat screen TV, mini-bar, typical bathroom amenities, somewhat stiff but comfortable bed.
Overall, I was very pleased and will endeavor to return.
