Family Vacation”

I booked a 1-bedroom executive suite and called the hotel in advance to request a room with two double beds instead of one king bed. They said they didn't have that option, but I still went ahead with the reservation because I wanted my teenage child and myself to be comfortable. The food at happy hour was not as varied as a 3-star hotel, so if you're planning to have a meal, it might be a bit limited. However, it would be perfect for people who drink alcohol. After dinner, we went to the swimming pool, and it was really beautiful, just like the reviews said. The room condition was also good. The bathtub was bigger than the ones in Korea, which was great for our family who enjoys half baths. There was also a TV inside the bathroom, so it wasn't boring. The mattress on the bed was comfortable and my mom liked it. When you open the curtains, you can see Dongdaemun right in front of you, and the night view was great. We had breakfast on the 2nd floor, and it was divided into Western and Korean styles, so both kids and adults could eat according to their preferences. We had a perfect vacation in the heart of the city without any shortcomings.

Thank you.”

I stayed at Marriott this time, and it was a great choice. I will definitely use it again next time. All the staff were very friendly. Above all, I had reserved a flower shop in the hotel in advance, and I was impressed with the bouquet that was very satisfying for the price. Thanks to that, I received a lot of love ^^ Thank you again to Mr. Park for doing a good job. Please make it even more beautiful next time haha ​​And when using Marriott Hotel, I recommend using the Sky View that overlooks Dongdaemun. The night view is very nice. And it's also a great location to go around Dongdaemun Night Market. And I highly recommend using Happy Hour. Thank you again to all the staff. I hope everyone has a healthy day every day. We arrived safely in Busan ^^
