Stayed 3 nights in April 2015

2 grandparents + 1 2.5years old toddler and myself”

the location, the staffs who spoke and understood english, the availability of family suite with 3 beds

I would say that together with my parents and my 2.5years old toddler, we had a really enjoyable stay at Westin. We had booked and stay at the 3-beds family suite and the room was enough space for my son to run around. We had 4 big luggages with us yet we still had room to walk around. The location is conveniently across Myeongdong and we like that there are 2 24-hours convenient stores just below the hotel. The hotel provided big brollies for the guests which was very important during rainy days. The staffs could speak and understand our english which makes communication very comfortable. My son had vomited on the 1st night and upon calling the room service desk, the cleaning staffs came up within 10minutes to do a proper clean up, washed our dustbin and cover up the area for us. Thank you The Westin Chosun Seoul! You really make a good stay for myself, my parents and my child!

the obvious choice”

location, quality of staff, gym / pool facilities

Good reviews probably don't make for very interesting reading, but I have nothing but praise for Westin Chosun. Good location means all cabs know the place, and if you want to save a bit of the travelling to and fro hotel, the Korean Air limousine bus is a very good option (Westin is one of the stops, travel time is comparable to cab). By far the best gym facilities I have seen in any hotel, and if I were greedy, the last thing to make it perfect would be a full length pool (but the 25m lap pool is already very competent). The new bakery is good but I still miss the old Vecchia e Nuovo pastries. As far as business hotels go the Westin Chosun ranks amongst the best, and provided you don't meet the black swan peak seasons, it's very good value for money. I would strongly recommend this to all.

Amazing Seoul Experience”

staff were very courteous and accomodating; Very clean hotel; Excellent location

Westin Chosun made our stay in Seoul very pleasant. The location was excellent because it was near Lotte mall and Myeongdong shopping district (just right across the road). Rooms were ver clean, good housekeeping service. The concierge and front desk staff were very accomodating. When we asked to transfer rooms (because our original room didn't have a nice view), they immediately gave us a new key and helped us transfer rooms. Very topnotch service. And the staff always greets you whenever you see them. If i would go back to Seoul, I would definitely stay again in Westin

Clean, comfortable & attentive staff

It was overall a very pleasant stay for my hubby and me. We received helpful suggestion for attraction places with clear and cheaper routes marked. We are even assisted for our dinner reservation at Seoul Tower where communication is based on korea language which is a barrier for both of us. Thumbs up for the hotel staff in The Westin Chosun Seoul. We will definitely book the same hotel again.

Luxury Staycation”

Sauna, Service, Executive Lounge Cocktail Hour

We stayed at the Chosun to celebrate my fiancée's 30th birthday. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. As Seoulites we're well accustomed to relaxing in saunas and the Chosun's sauna was the nicest we've tried. As Executive Club guests we had unlimited access to the sauna, which alone was well worth the price of the Executive Club upgrade. We also enjoyed the nightly cocktail hour which boasted a formidable self-service open bar and an array of light eats. Our room had a view of downtown and two mountains and the Westin Heavenly bed was certainly to notch. As someone who worked in fine dining for the better part of a decade, I must say the Chosun's Executive Club staff exceeded all expectations. It was obvious they genuinely enjoyed their jobs and their kindness made our stay all the more relaxing. All in all we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend upgrading to an Executive Club room. The Chosun is one of Seoul's finest hotels and we will definitely be back in the future.

Westin Chosun Seoul is surely a luxurious one. The room is large, clean, and well-equipped. The staff has a very polite and friendly service attitude, apparently well trained. The hotel is located in downtown Seoul and close to the subway station, very accessible and easy for people to go around Seoul.

This is the second time we stayed in Westin Hotel, this is an excellent hotel, right next to Myeong-dong the shopping area. All staffs are extremely helpful. It is a little pricy but certainly worth it as you can easily end up with a lousy hotel in Seoul when prices were only a little bit lower. We will certainly come back!

The Westin Chosun was a great hotel. First of all, it was in a great location. There are plenty of food, bars and shopping all less than a five minute walk away. There is a metro stop right next the hotel so getting anywhere in the city is a breeze from the hotel. The room was very clean, comfortable and luxurious. The staff and service was amazing! They helped us to organize tours and shows. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!

Luxury hotel but the room design is a bit outdated”

The hotel location is good. Though it is very close to Myeong Dong, but the surrounding neighbourhood is quiet. The hotel is not cheap, over USD200/per night without breakfast, but the room size is big and clean. However, the bathroom design is a bit outdated, I would prefer to have a shower instead of the old fashioned bath tub. Further, the breakfast is good but too pricey. The bell service is excellent, they could get you a taxi right away and instruct the driver for you. Anyway, this hotel deserves the 5 stars rating, but for the same money, I can have plently of choices with newer facility .

Fair convenience, pretty hotel, pretty rooms

Westin Chosun only lived to her standards room-wise. She was not 5-star in her service. Firstly, our stay was pre-paid yet the Front Office charged my credit card upon check-in. Eventhough they corrected this by voiding it later, it could have affected my spending limit on my cards during my holiday. Secondly, we had tried to arrange with the Concierge to help us with a booking with their local tour operator for bus reservations to Everland the night before our intended day to Everland. We were told the operator was closed at that time but the Concierge would make the booking 1st thing the next morning. Come the next morning, nothing was done. The Concierge was engaged with another guests and the Front Office looks lost and kept diverting us to wait for the Concierge to be free. There was no sense of urgency even when we were only 30minutes to the bus departure timing. We were quite displeased and panicky. Only then, the Front Office lady reluctantly made some calls and came back telling us that no reservation was required. SO, NOTHING WAS DONE IN THE END. Needless to say, we showed up at the waiting point only to be rejected by the Bus Operator who explained that all seats were given out to those who have made reservations already. It was truly disappointing that Westin could not help us at all in this aspect and it was a tiring and hectic morning traveling to Everland.
