Mr SAM from the concierge team is an excellent asset to the hotel
Reviewed 22 hours ago

How many times does it happen that you see a glimpse of core traditional hospitality? well I have traveled as few as 30 countries but i haven't seen this a lot. Mr Sam has gone above and beyond expectation with a simple task like reissuing a lost key in the gym to booking a taxi. being an entry level employee it is very rare they use guests last names and hospitality language which Sam did. He also went out of the box to book a local taxi and talking in Korean to the taxi driver to take me to my exact location at the exact fare. i personally think such people are pioneers of hospitality and they deserve the front seat to drive the Marriott culture forward. i am looking forward o stay in this hotel again

My favorite hotel in Seoul

Courtyard by Marriott in Namdaemun is a must stay hotel! First and foremost, the staff here are amongst the friendliest and most helpful of any I have ever encountered. Amenities are excellent. Proximity to shopping, eating, sightseeing, entertainment, everything is literally right outside the front door. Grandiose Palaces are just a few minutes walk away and the comprehensive, reliable, clean, subway system is available to take you anywhere else throughout the city. I suggest paying a couple extra bucks for the Executive Lounge option. Buffet-style breakfast and dinner available plus a 4 hour “Happy Hour” with all drinks included. A great starting point or night cap to wherever your journey takes you. I will stay at this hotel every time I come back to Korea.

Not an ordinary Courtyard!

We stayed at a fancy Sheraton Gangnam Palace hotel and had the worst experience. This place is 100% better than Sheraton. Place is brand new. Kids are allowed in Executive Lounge and breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The staff speaks English and very friendly. There is a shuttle bus that takes you to Seoul Station, Myeongdong, Insadong every 2 hours. Perfect location in front of Namdaemun and views of Namsan tower. There are lots of restaurants nearby walking distance. In the states, Courtyard in my opinion is a lower class of Marriotts but this one seemed to have very high standards. We will stay here again!

Wonderful hotel in a good location
Reviewed 1 week ago

I stayed in this hotel twice in the past 6 months and the overall experience was fantastic. Staff is generally friendly and efficient. Room is well equipped with the Nescafe Dolce machine and with full set of toiletries (yes dental kit is rather rare in Korea hotels). One of my stay I ordered bibimbap for room service. The taste was excellent and was very filling. As the gold member, I was also granted the club lounge access. This club lounge is one of the best in the courtyard hotels I have stayed. They provide ranges of alcohol selections during happy hour and during the food service period they always serve tasty Korean dishes. The only thing I think the hotel can improve is the temperature in the corridor. I guess the it has been extremely hot lately in Summer and the corridor is actually quite hot. Anyhow, my experience in this hotel is still excellent and I would recommend this to others.
