Originally I had planned to stay at only one hotel in Seoul, the Grand Hyatt. But in the end, I added two more: Sheraton D Cube City and IP Boutique Hotel. Two days before my arrival in Seoul, I had booked a Deluxe room with breakfast at Sheraton D Cube City for 164,000 South Korean won (incl. Tax KRW180,400 = EUR122)

Airport limousine bus 6018 (KRW15000) dropped me off at the Entrance Foyer where I was greeted by name by a friendly front desk staff member. I had been in touch with General Manager David Cuddon prior to my stay, who apparently had briefed his staff about my visit. After being guided to The Sheraton Club lounge on the 38th floor, I was welcomed by Room Division Manager Nick Song. I was upgraded to a 72 m² ‘Honeymoon Suite’ on the 30th floor (3014) and provided with access to the Sheraton Club lounge which included complimentary internet access, evening cocktails and Canapes, DVD rental, etc…

The suite was fabulous. Living room with TV connected to digital sound system, iPod docking, working desk, full minibar, fresh fruit platter on the table, etc… Bedroom with awesome design, daytime bed, big tv, separate restroom. Bathroom with huge oversized bathtub with amazing views over Seoul, walk-in shower with steambath functionality.

But what made my stay most enjoyable was the hotel staff. The enthusiastic and well trained staff made me feel very welcome at this new Sheraton property. While not in the same price category, the hotel delivered a service level which could compete with the Park Hyatt Seoul. Sheraton Seoul D Cube City will definitely end up in the top 5 of Seoul hotels on Tripadvisor!
