I stayed in the Westin Chosun for one week - the hotel is lovely, the staff are very friendly and the room I had was excellent. Breakfast was additional and was expensive again but was Buffet style and was very good.

There are various bars and restaurants in the hotel but like many hotels these are expensive and be careful because imported beers are extremely expensive! I stayed in four other hotels in Seoul during my visti which are all around the financial centre of Seoul. The Westin like a few of the others, Seoul Plaza hotel, Koreana hotel and Great Best Western (NOT recommended) are all in close proximity to each other and the main financial business district.

Make sure you sign up for the Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) member program - you might as well gain some points on your room and your food :-)

Unique Quality: Excellent rooms and very friendly staff. Luxury hotel!

Directions: A few minutes walk from the main financial business district.
It is a couple minutes walk from City hall.

I've stayed at many hotels in Seoul, but among them, I've stayed at three of the top names, the Hilton, Grand Hyatt and the Westin.

Honestly speaking, I put the Westin as being the most comfortable of the big three. The beds are the plushest, bathrooms are the largest, and the rooms are rather spacious.

For location, it is great for business travelers passing spending their time in commercial district.

Unique Quality: Walking distance from City Hall, Deosuggung Palace, National Museum of Art, Seoul Plaza, Namdaemun Market. Maybe a ~20 minute was from Insadong.

There are full spa, restaurant, bar, fitness center, etc.

Directions: 1 block south of City Hall and Euljiro 1(il)-ga metro station on line 2.

I love this hotel. The rooms are very stylish and well equiped. The staff were very very friendly and accommodating. The location is ideal, next to the City Hall Green and most of the popular shopping markets. Is a bit pricey but if you can afford it, this is the luxury hotel to stay in while in Seoul. The food Was excellent too, especially the Italian Restaurant on the basement floor. The gym is very nice as well.

Unique Quality: The stylish rooms, the computer and cell phones in the rooms, excellent Executive lounge, great American Buffet. Great hospitality.

Directions: Next to the City Hall Green

The Westin Chosun was located in the center of Seoul and had easy access to just about anywhere in the city. There was a taxi stand right in front of the hotel and a subway station few blocks away from the hotel. The hotel staff were helpful, friendly, and professional. Spa facility was excellent. There were Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Italian, and French restaurants all in the hotel. Most of the hotel restaurants in Korea are known to be very pricey and it might not be a bad idea to explore the local restaurants near the hotel. Stick to the hotel restaurants if you don't speak the local language. Most Koreans do not speak English well and you will most likely have tough time ordering food when dining outside of the hotel.

Ideally located in the heart of Seoul, The Westin Chosun - voted one of the 100 Best Hotels Worldwide by Institutional Investor magazine - is within walking distance of the headquarters of major international banks, local government offices, renowned historic landmarks and shopping districts. The hotel has the largest rooms in Seoul, all recently magnificently refurbished.

Unique Quality: The Westin's world-class facilities include the City Athletic Club, a business center, sophisticated conference rooms and banqueting services. The 8 restaurants in the hotel play a central role in Seoul's business and social worlds.

Westin Chosun Hotel. The rooms...

by written on August 24, 2002

Westin Chosun Hotel. The rooms are very nice and the services is quite good. I stayed there through 7 months and I can only complain about the beer prices at the hotel pub (Irish called O'Kims!)
It's about 230,000+ Won per night ($US200).

Unique Quality: American Forces TV Network in your room. It is hilarious and just crack me up with its ridiculous adds and mediocre American programming. It was so funny, it was almost sad!
