The Westin Chosun, is a good address for corporate meetings in Seoul

OPENED way back in 1914, the Westin Chosun Seoul is located in the heart of the fast-paced downtown Myeong-dong business area, within walking distance of major multinational companies and banks, as well as bustling shopping areas like Namdaemun Market. Its vintage antecedents are proudly emblazoned on a gleaming bronze plaque from Guinness, attesting that it is indeed, the “oldest hotel in the Republic of Korea”. This is a splendid address for both corporate meetings and leisure travellers and has won accolades as one of the best Seoul business hotels, and with good reason.

The Westin Chosun Seoul unveiiled a dramatic new look mid 2011 returning with 462 crisp rooms including 20 suites. Expect a brisk new contemporary feel to the lobby (with its gleaming open marbled space), and hi-tech business and banqueting facilities. The fitness centre is revamped and the indoor pool served up with a welcoming skylight.

Business travellers will spot a reassuring attention to detail, from secretarial support by multi-lingual staff to the complimentary mobile phone rental. Weary travellers can enjoy a peaceful in-room oasis right in the heart of Seoul with anti-allergy carpet, Westin`s signature Heavenly Bed slathered in high thread-count linens, a premium Nespresso machine and LCD TV with digital TV information service. Opt for a Family Room or even a WestinWORKOUT space.

The Westin Chosun Seoul provides Express check-in for guests to seamlessly slip into work – or play. Guests are welcomed with a personalised escort and luggage service at the airport and, upon arrival, are taken directly to their room, circumventing waiting time or queues. Unsurprisingly, the hotel has won several awards from influential travel and financial magazines such as Institutional Investor and Travel+Leisure. For business, meetings, or pleasure, this is very much a preferred hotel in Seoul.
