3.1. Best Review: “An Overnight Delight at Incheon: Best Western Harbor Park Hotel’s Night View and Breakfast Experience”

Summary of the Blog Post

As the end of the year approached, I visited Incheon for business. For accommodation, I chose the Best Western Harbor Park Hotel, which is conveniently located near various attractions. This hotel is within a 5-minute walk from Chinatown, Incheon Open Port Museum, and exhibition halls, making it very convenient. Also, as a large 4-star hotel equipped with banquet halls and convenience stores, I could enjoy beautiful night views and breakfast buffets in the restaurant.

The room I used was a Deluxe Harbor Twin Room on the 9th floor. The thick carpeting made the room noise-free, and I could enjoy the spectacular view of Incheon Port. The room was fully equipped with a bathroom, closet, refrigerator, hair dryer, etc.

The hotel has various amenities including a fitness center, business center, Open Port Cafe, and coin laundry. Also, there are many attractions around the accommodation, so I could enjoy both day and night. Especially, the breakfast at the restaurant on the 4th floor was very satisfying. I could enjoy a variety of menus, and the Korean corner with assorted salted seafood was particularly impressive.
