The Plaza Seoul, Autograph Collection (Premier suite)
One of the most central hotels in all of Seoul is The Plaza Seoul, Autograph Collection. Myeong-dong, Cheonggyecheon, Namsan, Gwanghwamun, and Deoksugung Palace are all within walking distance from the hotel.
Since my visit in March for our wedding anniversary was so enjoyable, I've already booked a room for New Year's Eve. There are numerous exciting New Year's Eve events to attend in the area surrounding the hotel.
The hotel in front of Seoul City Hall Plaza is formally known as The Plaza Seoul, Autograph Collection Hotel. It's well-known for being the hotel with the best view of Seoul City Hall, and it's also a great base from which to experience the many activities that take place in City Hall Plaza. The view at night is beautiful as well.
Floor guide (main Building)
There are 408 rooms at this five-star hotel along with 6 dining options, 9 banquet halls, a fitness center, and a spa. The spa and pool are located in the separate annex building that connects to the main building.
Since joining Marriott International's Autograph Collection in January 2016, the hotel has become an even more upscale establishment. Fresh flowers are waiting for you in the lobby.
Today, I'll write about the Premier suite and facilities in the Plaza Seoul Hotel.
Deoksugung Palace, located directly across from the hotel, offers free access to its guests, and we were given tickets to visit as well. Take your ticket to Deoksugung Palace with you.
The Plaza Hotel Premier Suite #2061
The Premier Suite does not have a view of City Hall, unfortunately. The Deluxe room overlooks the city hall but is on the tiny side for a 5-star establishment. From our room, you can see Namsan Tower and the rest of the city.
Welcome cookies and a bottle of champagne with cheese. We celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary at the hotel this year with a small cake we bought ourselves.
The suite features a living room and bedroom, however, they are very small for a 5-star suite. The bed's mattress was also spacious and high-quality, allowing for a restful night's rest. 5-star hotels seem to have a difference in mattresses
Two televisions may be found in the living area and bedroom. The view of Namsan Tower from the living room is slightly better than the view from the bedroom.
There are three different kinds of coffee capsules, but we didn't use them because we could get coffee in the lounge. The mini bar has drinks and beer, but it costs extra.
The toiletries were luxurious Molton Brown items, and the washbasin, bathtub, and shower area were all large enough for comfortable use.
Floor L & LL
There is a lounge, a store, and a gift shop on the L & LL floors.
Pool & Fitness (located in the annex building)
The annex building houses the swimming pool, gym, and spa. The room is on the main side of the building, making it difficult to access other parts of the building. However, the annex can be reached via elevator if you go to the basement (LL floor), which is connected to the main building.
The 16th floor is where you can get your locker key. The women's sauna is on the 15th floor, one floor below the men's sauna on the 16th.
On the 17th floor, you'll find a fitness center and a golf driving range, perfect for some moderate swing work.
The sauna and pool were wonderful, but the awkward up-and-down stair access took away from the experience for me.
The pool has around four lanes and windows next to the sunbed, creating a pleasant sense of openness, and the view is pleasant as well.
As a bonus, there is a whirlpool spa where you can relax after a long day of sightseeing in Seoul. Daytime sunshine is pleasant, and the evening skyline of Seoul, especially Namsan Tower, is a sight to behold.
The sauna was nice as well, and although it was a bit of a hassle to get from the main building to the annex building, the fitness center and pool there were fine.
