Rated 5 out of 5 by Noel75 What a fabulous stay! Thumbs up!
I heard a lot of good words of the hotel from people around, finally found they were right. Upon arrival, the staffs kindly helped check-in procedures with warm hospitality. All of the sculptures in the lobby and throughout the hotel were modern and sensible, and also all the conditions of the place got along well with those concepts. Indoor swimming pool was clean and the food served in the bar was also very tasty. In and around the hotel, there were excellent fine dining restaurants, and above all the status, the room condition was great. I would recommend a room with a river view.

Rated 5 out of 5 by elizros32 Enjoyable Stay
Almost fauless stay. Lobby area was classy and tastefully designed. It did take me a while to get used to my red and white room, but I soon came to appreciate the design and quality of the fixtures and fittings. Bed was lush. I enjoyed being beside the river and the floor to ceiling windows. Staff were amazing - very helpful and attentive but not over the top. Steak, creme brulee and pumpkin soup were very good. Good spread and quality of ingredients at breakfast. Excellent cosmopoltians (not for breakfast!). Hotel was pretty full but it never felt busy. Was warned about queues for brekkie but it wasn't an issue. Biggest problem was a chaotic system for getting a taxi - directly outside was not very well organised or clear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nick73 Wireless Needs Overhaul
I've stayed here about 4 time in the last couple months. The service is fantastic and the room is very nice, but as a business travel, the wireless service is unacceptable and probably the worst I've had at an SPG property. First, unlike most SPG properties, you have to get a special code from the front desk and it will only work on one device/computer. Second, the strenght of signal was so bad, it kept going in and out on my phone. I eventually had to leave my Skype conference call and go to the lobby, which had the same bad reception.
For a high end brand (and price), please upgrade your service. Business travelers live and die by wireless internet these days.
Otherwise a really nice hotel with great service.

We may stay again our 11 years friendship anniversary! Thank you very very much again! And Happy New Year!

It was our honeymoon and the hotel and its staffs made the stay so special. Since we checked in, room was just great that i expected and front office team explained lots of great information to let us enjoy ourselves and celebrated our honeymoon!! From my poor memory, i guess cray helped us lots of luggages kindly, winnie checked in us with a professional way and vincent checked out us with a speedy skill.(cause we came down to check out a bit late) but i am so sorry that i couldn't remember all the staff's name...

Rated 4 out of 5 A lovely evening at the W Seoul
My wife and I took a weekend getaway to the W Seoul (we live and work on the outskirts of the city).
We had a great experience overall. The amenities are fantastic, the bed was very comfortable, the TV is state of the art, and the overall feel of the facility is youthful and vibrant.
I've stayed at a number of Starwood properties, including the Le Meridien in Hong Kong and the Westin in Columbus, Ohio. This was my favorite Starwood experience to date.
A couple of minor complaints:
1) The in-room breakfast is rather forgettable, and not worth the cost
2) The Woo Bar is fun, but I would have preferred live music over the rather strange and hypnotic video art
Again, all things considered--an excellent retreat for Seoulites, and a fine choice for out-of-town visitors.
Great work, W Seoul!

Rated 4 out of 5 by cindyyogi Excellent service, food could be better
We had a very pleasant stay at W Walkerhill. The most standout feature of the hotel was the attentiveness and courtesy of the staff. In particular, the wait staff at the Kitchen restaurant were wonderful and the housekeeping staff were also very courteous.
The rooms are stylish and the facilities are great. I enjoyed the pool.
Only two things more would have made our stay perfect:
1) The beds are a little on the softer/plush side. I guess some people prefer this type of bed, but I would have preferred a slightly firmer mattress.
2) The food options are very limited for vegetarians and vegans. I would suggest adding a few more items in the lunch and dinner menus at the restaurants/in-room dining. Also, during breakfast, offer oatmeal or some other substantial item in place of eggs.
Otherwise, we really enjoyed a stay. Quick tip: try to Woonut (a cronut) at breakfast. It's awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CYML Best W I've Experienced.
This has to be one of the best experiences I've had staying at an SPG hotel. The rooms and facilities are what I expected from the W, but what distinguished this particular location is their service. From the check-in to check-out, I've always felt welcome and important. Special shout out goes to the concierge crew - these ladies went above and beyond to help me find tickets for "Wicked" and reserve a restaurant near the concert hall for a special night out. Thanks ladies!

I stayed at the W recently and really enjoyed my stay. As a platinum member I was upgraded to a Marvelous Suite. The room was very comfortable and offered a lot of great amenities. The hotel is clean and welcoming. The Kitchen Restaurant is also very good as well. I would stay here again if in the area.

The front desk and especially the the concierge staff were very knowledgeable, informative, helpful, and professional. They could sense our insecurities in being in a foreign country and went out of their way to make sure we felt safe and comfortable. They prepared explicit written instructions on how to use the various transportation options, wrote instructional cards (both English and Korean) we could show our taxi driver, and assisted us with a personal travel itinerary geared to the activities we wanted to do. Their valuable assistance provided us with a positive experience of the Korean culture. We are most grateful for their expertise. The rest of the staff at this hotel were also very courteous and respectful.
Although they have a fitness center with a wide variety of equipment, we chose to utilize the pool. It was a great way to relax at the end of the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RasmusK Another great stay at a W Hotel
After staying at the W in both Taipei and Bali, we were quite excited about our stay at the W in Seoul. Although the check-in was a bit awkward at first, we were very happy to hear that the hotel had upgraded us to a "Fantastic suite" with large windows overlooking the river. The crib that we had requested for our son came at the same time as we entered the room.
Overall, the suite was indeed fantastic and so was the room service food that we ordered later in the evening. Only a few minor cons, such as that some drawers could not be opened due the way the TV set had been installed and insufficient "childproofing" of controls etc. Also the compulsory use of bathing caps in the pool may be warranted due to local cultural codes at the same time as it felt a bit unnecessary to push it that hard for a hotel that has a global audience. Yet, overall, we were super happy and would love to come back some day!

Very nice modern high class hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It would have been nice if they were able to upgrade my room for my week long stay as a gold member. but i had to settle for the very standard room due to availability. Other than that, the stay was fantastic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bil1477 Large room, plenty of food choice for breakfast.
We stayed in a double bed room. The only thing that needs to be improved is that there is no ligjht control on the left hand side of he bed. Another minor point is that the remote control for the TV and DVD ins't working properly. The DVD/tape set seems to be quite outdated.

All is done to experiment and entertain, always with great respect of the client and detailed- oriented thoughts.
Easy, fluid, no bling bling but efficient service with a specific additional touch. I guess it is the W signature. I experimented it for the first time, and will check where to find one W to my next destination.

Although the hotel quite a distance from the city centre and subway station, it did provide free shuttle bus to the subway station.
The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful.
