3. Showcasing Top-tier Reviews from Korean Guests

Being situated in South Korea, it’s no surprise that Marriott Executive Apartments Seoulplays host to a significant number of Korean guests. In my quest for understanding guest experiences, I’ve come across a plethora of reviews penned by Koreans. Allow me to share some of these standout reviews with you.

3.1. Best Review 1: “Enjoying the Ultimate Staycation with Kids at Marriott Executive Apartments Seoul, Seoul – From Breakfast, Suite Rooms to Swimming Pool”

Summary of the Blog Post

I recently enjoyed a staycation at the Marriott Executive Apartments Seoul with my twin children. Marriott Executive Apartments Seoul provides everything needed for a family stay including spacious rooms, convenient kitchen facilities and a swimming pool – making it an excellent choice for a staycation with kids.

Aside from the narrow entrance to the parking lot being somewhat of a drawback; every other aspect was satisfying. The room we stayed in was a suite composed of one bedroom with bed, one living room with sofa and dining table set-up as well as bathroom equipped with both bathtub and shower booth along with kitchen facilities.

What’s more notable is that the kitchen came fully equipped including washing machine/dryer combo unit alongside oven microwave and dishwasher; truly providing home away from home experience! Moreover; this hotel’s swimming pool is available 24/7 letting us fully enjoy our time there!

For dinner we chose to dine at an Italian restaurant located on the basement level of hotel building whereas breakfast served at hotel offered quite delicious choices too! One thing that left quite an impression was chef’s live cooking of egg dishes during breakfast time.

3.2. Best Review 2: “Marriott Executive Apartments Seoul – 3 Bedroom Penthouse Suite”

Summary of the Blog Post

I’m excited to share my recent experience at the Marriott Executive Apartments Seoul after a long hiatus! This time around I chose the 3-bedroom penthouse suite; upon checking in and entering the room, my friends had already set up food and garlands.

The living room was spacious with a large dining table and sofa in place and a full kitchen equipped right in front of the TV – even including a washer and dryer which would be useful for those planning on longer stays. There was also an old-fashioned coffee maker but personally I would have preferred an espresso machine.

Despite being called a ‘3-bedroom’ suite there were actually only two bedrooms. One was a twin bedroom and the other featured a king-sized bed, with an additional space that could be described as a study room.

Each room had separate bathrooms, and the master bedroom even had a bathtub. It was absolutely fantastic to enjoy both day and night views from this corner room!

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’

Marriott Executive Apartments Seoul: lowest price on HotelsCombined

After searching through ‘HotelsCombined’, the best deal I found was $236 when booking through ‘Trip.com’.

5.2. Price Comparison via ‘Sky Scanner’

Marriott Executive Apartments Seoul: lowest price on Sky Scanner

The lowest price on ‘Sky Scanner’ is $300 for a 1-night stay when booking through ‘Trip.com’.

5.3. Price Comparison via ‘Trivago’

Marriott Executive Apartments Seoul: lowest price on Trivago

The lowest price on ‘Trivago’ is $299 when booked through ‘Trip.com’.

5.4. Official Website of ‘Marriott Executive Apartments Seoul

Marriott Executive Apartments Seoul: lowest price on the official website

I also explored prices directly from the ‘Marriott Executive Apartments Seoul’ official website. The lowest price confirmed on the official website was confirmed to be KWR 335,000. While I was unable to find a way to convert the currency unit directly into USD, making it difficult to calculate the exact amount, applying the exchange rate of 1,348 KRW on the day of inquiry resulted in an approximate value of USD 243.

Our analysis reveals that out of all four sites considered, ‘HotelsCombined’ offers the best deal at USD 236 for a stay at the Marriott Executive Apartments Seoul. 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 Marriott Executive Apartments Seoul, seen through a distinctly Korean lens.
