JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square SeoulTravelers choose this property—the second JW Marriott hotel in Seoul—for its location in the bustling shopping neighborhood of Dongdaemun and its views of the ancient East Gate. Dining options include Korean buffet at Tavolo 24, pastries at Seoul Baking Company, and New York–style steak at BLT Steak. A rooftop bar serves cocktails based on city landmarks, like the Seoul N Tower made with blue curaçao—a nod to the tower’s blue light seen on clean-air days. A spa by L’Occitane offers facial and body treatments, and guests can use the pristine indoor pool and fitness center. Outside the hotel, the markets, shopping centers, and food alleys of Dongdaemun are busy at all hours, and the futuristic Dongdaemun Design Plaza—the hub of Korea’s fashion and modern design scene—is within easy reach.
