Great Hotel, great location, great value
Location, Value, appointments
Courtyard Marriott is conveniently located close to Yongdongpo Station, second in size only to Seoul Central station. It is part of the Times Square complex which offers a wide range of shopping and dining experiences. A 5 minute walk away is the water park, a large indoor pool complex suited to children of all ages.
Rooms were clean, as was the hotel generally, the gym whilst small offered plenty of activities and modern equipment. Whilst the breakfast buffet was good, for 2 people, it was a little expensive at A$60. We ate in the restaurants underneath in the Times Square complex, which offered all cuisines at a range of prices.
The best thing about the Hotel was it was value for money.
The Newcastle Novotel in country NSW Australia remains the worst value hotel I have experienced throughout the world, it was 5 start price and 3 star experience.
Anybody going to the Courtyard Marriott times Square Seoul, whether family or business traveller would be happy with its appointments service and value

I think it is a very good hotel. Just down stair B1, B2 are connected to large shopping center and a lot of resturents. It is also very near the MRT station. To Gimpo airport only 25 minutes by taxi.
connected is the next door large mall with shopping and resturents of wide viriaities, including prices, too.

wonderful hotel in the business district ( cbd)
amazing location and excellent connectivity and very helpful staff
This is special comment for people who have no experience about cold climate.
I arrived to Seoul for a business trip leaving Mumbai which was hot and sweaty ( +30 degrees C) and arrived in Seoul the next day morning which was cold ( -10) degrees C. The temperature shock of more than -40 degrees was "shocking". I was numb for almost 1/2 hour till I got on the airport bus. Anyway here are some interesting observations.
The new airport terminal at Incheon Island is well connected to Seoul ( pronounced as Sea-hool) by airport link bus, as well as road and rail. However I found the airport link bus to be most convinient. This service ( has several routes More than 20) and connects almost all well known hotels and location in Seoul to the airport.
This service is by far the most traveller friendly service I have seen till date. Easy for the new travellers as well as the hotels.
You just remember your hotel stop and the bus number. These bus will drop you within walking distance to your hotel in warm comfort and are inexpensive and reliable.
Anyway about the hotel ( Marriott Times square -Seoul)
Very new hotel located in a huge shopping mall surrounded by offices and business complexes. I choose this location because it was very near to the Central Business District where I had a meeting the next day morning.
The hotel indeed was upto the Marriott Standards and I could not find a single mistake / error or flaw in the service quality or the hotel room and decor.
Over all a pleasant stay in this hotel.
The whole times square is a large mall with several branded outlets of well known International and Korean brands. However I could not find MacDonald, KFC or Burger king in the complex which was disappointing.

Room was too warm and can not adjust temperature. I complain about smelly room and hotel staff changed room for me. I was not happy at all. It was terrible experience to stay this hotel.
Do not use this hotel!
