3.1. Best Reviews 1 : “Experience the Grand Deluxe Double City View at Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower

Summary of the Blog Post

I had the chance to stay in the Grand Deluxe Double City View room at Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower.

Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower is connected to Lotte Department Store main branch, Avenue L, and Young Plaza, and is a 10-minute walk from Myeongdong and Namdaemun Market. Plus, it’s just a 3-minute walk to Euljiro Entrance Station.

Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower is a remodeled version of the existing new wing of Lotte Hotel, completed in 2018 with an overall luxurious ambiance. A significant feature is the high-end VIP service you can receive from the entrance itself – including valet parking service and one-to-one check-in service.

Check-in was done at the exclusive front desk on the 15th floor of the Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower. The privacy provided by their one-on-one care was very satisfying.

Upon entering my room, I noticed that Simmons co-developed bedding system was used for their comfortable-looking bed. The interior of my room also boasted a luxurious atmosphere with beige & gold tones; even its carpeted flooring added an elegant touch.

The bathroom was adorned with marble and equipped with an LED mirror as well as a bathtub. It seemed they were using Diptyque products for amenities.

In conclusion, I believe that Grand Deluxe rooms in Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower are suitable for those who want to enjoy five-star services or couples who want to spend special anniversaries. Next time, I’m looking forward to using Le Salon.

3.2. Best Reviews 2 : “Seoul Staycation at Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower’s Le Salon with a View of Namsan Tower: A Review

Summary of the Blog Post

Driven by stress, I decided to have a staycation at the Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower’s Le Salon in Seoul. The biggest attraction was that they provided four meals per day during my stay; however, the afternoon tea and happy hour were particularly anticipated events for me.

I was assigned a room with a view of Namsan Tower, but it was slightly disappointing as I could only see the rooftop of a building when lying on the bed.

The view from the lounge was good but somewhat familiar to me which gave me an impression of being at a company workshop rather than on vacation. The time spent enjoying wine and champagne during happy hour was satisfying for me personally but might be less so for those who don’t drink alcohol.

The variety and taste of breakfast menu were most satisfying to me among all meals provided during my staycation. As I concluded my staycation experience, I decided that next time I would opt for somewhere with either an excellent view or delicious buffet offerings.

5. Diving into Price Analysis

Finally, let’s delve into arguably one of the most critical categories in hotel reviews – pricing.

To pinpoint where you can get your money’s worth, I’ll be comparing rates from renowned hotel comparison platforms like ‘HotelsCombined,’ ‘SkyScanner,’ and ‘Trivago.’

Our criteria for this low-price hunt? A one-night stay from Wednesday to Thursday for two guests in a single room—breakfast excluded (as it often significantly bumps up costs).

5.1. Price Comparison via ‘HotelsCombined’

Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower: lowest price on hotelscombined

After searching through ‘HotelsCombined’, the best deal I found was $253 when booking through ‘Priceline’.

5.2. Price Comparison via ‘Sky Scanner’

Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower: lowest price on Skyscanner

The lowest price on ‘Sky Scanner’ is $314 for a 1-night stay when booking through ‘Booking.com’.

5.3. Price Comparison via ‘Trivago’

The lowest price on ‘Trivago’ is $315 when booked through ‘Booking.com’.

5.4. Official ‘Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower’ Website

Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower: lowest price on the official website

I also explored prices directly from the ‘Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower’ official website. Interestingly, their lowest non-member rate  was $254, almost the same as $253 for ‘HotelsCombined’

From our analysis, we find ‘HotelsCombined’ offering competitive rates amongst all four sites considered. You might want to keep this information handy while booking.

★ Do bear in mind, these rock-bottom prices are subject to change based on your stay dates and when you’re conducting your search.

★ Also crucial to remember – today’s best deal doesn’t necessarily promise future savings.

★ Consider this ‘Lowest Price Analysis’ as a guiding light rather than an absolute rule.

★ For savvy hotel booking, I’d recommend revisiting these comparison sites during your accommodation planning phase – you never know when you might stumble upon an even better deal!”

And with that, we wrap up our review of the Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower, seen through a distinctly Korean lens.
