An insider’s look at JW Marriott Seoul

This article originally appeared on www.hotelclub.com/blog. which is now part of hotels.com

JW Marriott Seoul is by far the best all-around hotel you’ll find in Seoul. Conveniently located in Central City, you can enjoy luxury shopping and fine dining without leaving the complex.

As soon as you enter the hotel lobby, you’ll notice floors upon floors of fine dining and luxurious little extras such as a new business center and a great little café.

From my experience, a few days at the JW Marriott Seoul was not quite long enough to enjoy each and every restaurant and cocktail bar, but hopefully these few insider tips will come in handy next time you’re in Seoul:

1. Enjoy evening drinks from 4pm-8pm at the executive lounge on the 30th floor.
Try a few Korean favourites like kimchi pancakes and enjoy a few local beers. Insider Tip: Head for drinks around 7pm when you’re most likely to meet a few new people and exchange Seoul travel tips.

2. Stay at track at the world-class gym featuring squash courts, an indoor running track and driving range.
Insider Tip: If you’re interested in rock climbing or diving, let the front desk arrange a session for you.

3. Grab a quick snack at the Shinsegae food court located next to JW Marriott Seoul
Insider Tip: Ask the information desk for a few suggestions. Drinks and desserts will change throughout the year, be sure to try something that’s in season.


4. Find your favourite local brand in the Express Bus Terminal Underground Shopping Mall
Insider Tip: If you’re looking for the best value, look for unique jewelry or handbags. Clothes sizing and quality will be hard to work out on the go, find cute and easy to pack gifts.
