5 Of Seoul's Most Ballin'est Hotels
Seoul is a world-class city and what better way to enjoy it than to ball out in one of these upscale hotels offerering the very best in high-class traveling.
1. Signiel Seoul
As the newest luxury hotel to hit Seoul, the Signiel Seoul makes a grand entrance sitting atop the Lotte Tower on the 76th floor with suites reaching as high as the 101st! Not to mention Michelin-starred French chef Yannick Alleno is the mastermind behind on site STAY, providing a culinary experience with both exquisite tastes and a posh ambiance.
Suites start at US$735
2. JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul
If you're looking for luxury, but still want to be close to all of the buzz and vibrancy of Seoul, then the JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul is the perfect stay. Located in the iconic shopping district of Dongdaemun you're nearby several malls and some of the city's best restaurants, but you won't even have to leave the hotel. As you enter the property, you'll find it dressed in modern and contemporary accents and decor, with floor to ceiling windows that bring the outdoors right into your hotel room.
Suites start at US$350
3. Banyan Tree Club & Spa Seoul
Escape from the city and engage with Mother Nature in this hotel. Overlooking Mount Namsan, the country's marquee Banyan Tree property splendidly combines the traditional hospitality of Korea with the hotel chain's signature warmth. Golfing, futsal and tennis facilities are all available on site, though for our money the spa is the hotel's killer feature.
Suites start at US$700
4. The Shilla Seoul
The award-winning Shilla is a staple in Seoul's high-end hotel scene and has been the long-time choice for businessmen, families, and couples looking for premier accommodation. The hotel’s outdoor pool and fountain are great sights (especially at night) and the Guerlain Spa is a must-try.
Suites start at US$970
5. Park Hyatt Seoul
Beyond the hotel's modern design aesthetic and plush facilities, Park Hyatt Seoul also boasts world-class staff trained to cater to your every request. Enjoy panoramic views of South Korea through sleek glass floor to ceiling windows and the exclusive Gangnam address--just try to refrain from doing "the dance" too much while you're there.
Suites start at US$544
