Brand new JW Marriott that's very central in Seoul.
It is what you would expect from a 5 star signature hotel. This hotel just opened up in early 2014 and offers all the amenities you could want in a resort style hotel (minus beach).
1.) The hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating and speak many languages.
2.) The executive lounge area is amazing and provides many views of the city. The food, drinks and service was awesome.
3.) Pool, Spa and fitness area is unexpectedly large with nice upscale equipment with 4 simulated golf ranges. You have a fruit/snack bar, lounge and private lounge area if you want to get away. I had to force myself to leave otherwise I would spend half the day working out, golfing and relaxing.
4.) The rooms are very modern and automated. In Asia most rooms are going to have double beds unless requested in advance. Beds were perfect and comfortable. The room had an Nespresso machine, safe, and fridge for drinks. They put a lot of thought into the rooms for the many foreign travelers Large bathroom/shower.
I can't wait to come back to Korea in a year and will stay at the JW in Seoul!!!
