I really enjoyed my stay at the Westin Chosun. Excellent service all around, central location and wonderful breakfast buffet spread. The pre-selected floor card security makes for easy return to the room when in a hurry, when you have too many things in your hands or after a late night. Also love Arirang just around the corner for excellent korean charcoal BBQ! My hotel choice for Seoul.

At the hotel bar/lounge....a bottle of beer costs $14 USD, a glass of draft beer costs $22 USD. See picture uploaded. A small pizza costs $35, which is among the lowest priced items on the menu at the Italian restaurant. Plus, there are zero good restaurant options within walking distance...so please consider that.

I will echo the other reviews that state this hotel is outdated. Except the lobby looks nice. They really should not be charging the prices they do for these rooms. If you like having an outlet next to the bed for charging while working on a laptop or charging your phone...you won't get that at this hotel. The bathroom is small and quite honestly, not at all what you expect from a Westin...or any hotel charging $200+ per night.

I hope some travelers read this review before booking.

Loved the location of the westin and the hotel has no lack of amenities, good gym facilities. It is located just at the end of myeongdong away from the crazy crowd and hustle of the myeongdong shoppers but yet close enough for you to do the shopping and enjoy quiet sleep. Rooms need some refurbishment and housekeeping and service could be better. Not much of view from the room. Overall, it feels like westin and has the westin standards but also kept the old westin feel. I will be back to westin for sure.

Great hotel in great location. All the comforts of Westin, including a very nice gym and well-assorted gym. In addition excellent service throughout from reception onwards. If unable to go out, the restaurants are also more than fine although good to take advantage of being in Seoul to go out and explore.

Highly recommendable.
