Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - UPFRONT -

ALCOVE HO­TEL SEOUL Last month saw the open­ing of Ac­corho­tels’ lat­est ad­di­tion to the South Korean cap­i­tal, lo­cated in the Gang­nam dis­trict. Over­look­ing the Se­olle­ung and Jeongne­ung Royal Park – a Un­esco World Her­itage site – the 108-room prop­erty has a sim­i­larly tran­quil am­bi­ence within, aided by solid wood fur­nish­ings. A rooftop bar, Club Limit, of­fers great views of the sur­round­ing area. ac­cor.com

HOL­I­DAY INN EX­PRESS SEOUL HONGDAE IHG opened its sec­ond Hol­i­day Inn Ex­press prop­erty in Seoul in Septem­ber in the city’s lively Hongdae dis­trict. Lo­cated about 30 min­utes from Gimpo air­port and 50 min­utes from In­cheon air­port, the 294-room prop­erty is close to the new AK Mall, Hongdae Mu­ral Street and Yeon­tral Park, while within the prop­erty it­self are a 24-hour gym and a self-ser­vice busi­ness cen­tre. ihg.com

JW MAR­RIOTT SEOUL No, this is not a new ho­tel, but af­ter re­open­ing fol­low­ing an ex­ten­sive eight-month-long ren­o­va­tion, we feel it’s worth a men­tion. Gue­strooms have been re­vamped by Korean de­sign firm Kes­son with a warm grey and taupe pal­ette and photo walls de­pict­ing works from lo­cal artist Se­ungsang Park, while the rest of the in­te­ri­ors have been re­designed by Amer­i­can de­sign firm Ol­son Kundig to fea­ture nat­u­ral el­e­ments. mar­riott.com

AVANI CEN­TRAL BUSAN HO­TEL This 289-room ho­tel will be Avani Ho­tels and Re­sorts’ sec­ond prop­erty in Busan when it opens in early 2019. The ho­tel shares a lo­ca­tion in the tallest com­mer­cial build­ing in the city with the Busan In­ter­na­tional Fi­nance Cen­ter (BIFC), within the Mun­hyeon Fi­nance Com­plex about 30 min­utes from Gimhae In­ter­na­tional Air­port. avani­ho­tels.com
