JW Marriott Seoul reopened following an extensive eight-month renovation. The hotel’s public spaces, designed by notable French interior designer Bruno Moinard of AGENCY 4BI, were inspired by Korea’s modern aesthetic and transformed to reflect a warm and welcoming new look. Additionally, American design firm, Olson Kundig, channeled natural elements to refresh the property’s interiors. JW Marriott Seoul’s Japanese restaurant, Tamyura – designed by Casappo & Associates – embraces earthy woods coupled with eye-catching accents presented throughout the property’s other dining outlets, Flavors and Café One.
“The relaunch of JW Marriott Seoul signifies an exciting milestone for the JW Marriott brand,” said Mitzi Gaskins, vice president & global brand manager, JW Marriott. “We are thrilled to reintroduce JW Marriott Seoul to both domestic and international travelers and provide them with the highest level of luxury service and amenities in this captivating city.”
The hotel features 379 guest rooms, including two multi-level penthouses and 32 suites. South Korean interior design firm KESSON revamped each guest room to embody a contemporary ambience with a sophisticated design, featuring warm grey and taupe palettes accompanied by a photo wall that displays the art of local artist Seungsang Park.
The hotel boasts seven culinary outlets, including Tamayura, an authentic Japanese restaurant; Flavors, a buffet-style restaurant; and The Lounge, located on the eighth floor and serving afternoon tea curated by Michelin star restaurant consultant, Alan Yau. The hotel’s prominent bar, MOBO Bar offers exclusive wines and inspirational cocktails crafted by the top mixologists with freshly picked local Korean ingredients.
The hotel offers 24,800 square feet of conference space, including an 8,200-square-foot Grand Ballroom and six additional meeting rooms.
