Excellent and Worry-Free

This is a slightly overdue review which the hotel well deserves. I had stayed with them previously which was also excellent and regretfully had not reviewed them then. This week-long recent trip, as expected of Marriott Gangnam, was one of the most comfortable stays I have had in a hotel in recent memory. Check-in: - Room check-in was straightforward, friendly and welcoming after a long and tiresome flight. Front desk staff Min and Scott was extremely assistive in accommodating all needs and patiently answering questions. The hotel even knew before I mentioned what my hotel loyalty card membership details were and thank you for rewarding me with a much appreciated benefit/additional bed. Overall hotel: - The decor of the hotel and the rooms are slightly dated, but cannot be faulted on space and maintenance so a certain level of class true to the brand is still maintained. Lifts however are slow due to age so may occasionally be a slight wait. - Facilities (gym etc) are huge and excellent Room: - Room was slightly dated but good in terms of space. Even with the addition of an extra bed there was still a lot of space for three adults to comfortably move around and be able to sit on each bed to watch the tv - The extra bedding provided is extremely comfortable and is of similar quality to existing bedding - Toilets are spacious and luxurious - The cleaning staff at the hotel do a good job at keeping the rooms clean with an good attitude and demeanour. Service: - Service during my weeklong stay was prompt and extremely polite: one of the days during my stay, half the lights in my room fused and as soon as I buzzed for assistance, the maintenance staff arrived within five minutes and repairs were efficiently carried out with minimal disruption to my activities - Throughout my stay, staff were friendly and happy to help with food recommendation and other errands which needed local language interpretation Check-out: - Check-out was swift and the desk staff was genuinely apologetic over some minor problems I had in my room (I did not not bring it up as I had forgotten about the room's light fuse incident). Was appreciative this was acknowledged - Other lobby staff were helpful over luggage weighing and co-ordination of the airport bus which conveniently stops right outside the hotel lobby Summary: Overall apart from the comfort, amenities and location of the hotel, what is truly outstanding and distinguishes this hotel from others of similar standing is the hotel's emphasis on service. This shows in the efficiency, willingness and friendliness of the staff during my entire stay (from front desk, to lobby staff, to cleaning staff, to hotel maintenance and the rest that I encountered). I would like to say to the staff thank you for making a huge difference in what would have otherwise been yet another forgettable hotel stay. This hotel is definitely one of the gems in the Marriott brand (of which I have stayed in a few)

JW Marriott Stay

Excellent stay, BUT, I don't see why you shouldn't get free wi fi without having to join the JW Marriott club. A much cheaper airport hotel in Shanghai gave it free, no questions asked.
