Virginia-headquartered hospitality giant Hilton Worldwide is celebrating the launch of an 18-storey, 208-key hotel in the fashionable Gangnam district of Seoul.

Famed for its glamorous malls – and for inspiring musician Psy’s dance megahit – the Gangnam district in the South Korean capital is now also home to the country’s first Hilton Garden Inn property.

Hilton checks into Seoul

Hilton Garden Inn Seoul Gangnam, owned by Joon Tower and managed by Hilton Worldwide, aims to appeal to both business and leisure travellers alike. The scheme boasts crisp, elegant common and private areas, and acts as the ideal base for guests to attend nearby conferences, or indulge in some sightseeing.

Lee Hong-ki, general manager of Hilton Garden Inn Seoul Gangnam, said: “I’m delighted to successfully open Hilton’s first Hilton Garden Inn in South Korea today. I would like to thank the owning company for their great support and my team for their outstanding commitment, hard work and enthusiasm in the lead-up to this opening.”

What to expect at Hilton Garden Inn Seoul Gangnam

This property boasts 208 well-appointed rooms that allow guests to enjoy expansive views across the skyline, including 26 family rooms, 56 deluxe rooms and four suites. There’s also a fitness centre and rooftop pool, plus a varied F&B programme in the form of contemporary restaurant the Garden Bistro, lounge and bar Cafe 253, and 24-hour retail hub The Shop.

Meanwhile, corporate travellers can avail themselves of the fully kitted-out business centre and three flexible meeting rooms, which are capable of holding up to 100 attendees in total.

Jenny Milos, vice president of Focused Service and All Suites Brands for Asia Pacific at Hilton, said: “With more than 900 hotels in 50 countries and territories around the world, Hilton Garden Inn has one of our largest number of hotels within the Hilton portfolio. Hilton Garden Inn Seoul Gangnam is a stunning addition to our rapidly growing Hilton Garden Inn brand, combining upscale yet affordable accommodations with positive, upbeat service and value-added amenities.

“I am thrilled to see the brand enter yet another gateway city in Asia Pacific and am confident that the hotel meets the diverse needs of both domestic and international travellers when travel returns.”
