JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts has expanded its luxury portfolio in South Korea with the unveiling of the new 170-room JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul.
The new hotel is the second JW Marriott to open in Seoul and the first hotel in the city to receive LEED Gold certification.
Marriott International manages the JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul under a long-term agreement with the owner, Dong Sung Co.
“South Korea is a one of Asia’s fastest growing global economies and a strategically important North Asian travel hub,” said Simon Cooper, president, Asia Pacific for Marriott International.
“JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul will further strengthen our luxury brand portfolio in this very important market and it will complement our existing JW Marriott Seoul which continues to be a great standard bearer for the brand.”
Featuring a stylish urban facade and interior that exude elegance, warm luxury and minimalist sophistication, the property is the first international luxury business hotel in Dongdaemun.
Ideally located in the heart of Seoul’s fashion district and adjacent to the subway station and key tourist attractions, the new JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul boasts unobstructed views of Korea’s number one national treasure – the historical Dongdaemun or “East Gate.”
The new hotel has 170 guestrooms, including 19 Executive Sky View Rooms and 15 Suites.
A dedicated Executive Lounge with an open balcony serves the Executive Floor rooms.
Among the hotel’s extensive health and fitness facilities are an indoor 25-meter lap pool, the exclusive Club 501 Fitness Centre and the indulgent The JW Spa.
The hotel’s innovative food and beverage program is curated by a stellar team of award-winning professionals from France, Germany, the US and Korea.
