Seoul Plaza Hotel
The Seoul Plaza Hotel is one of the city’s leading fivestar hotels situated right in the heart of the nation’s capital, Seoul, which is blended with rich cultural traditions from the past and the technological wonders of the 21st century and was long a capital of the 600-year-old Korean kingdom, Joseon.
The building overlooks the city’s major attractions in Seoul such as Deoksu Palace, Gyeongbok Palace and Gwangwhamun, offering one of the best views of the inner city skyline. The location also provides easy access to international and domestic financial institutions, trading firms, large enterprises, major government organizations as well as shopping areas in Namdaemun, Myeong-dong and Jongno.
The hotel has built a world-wide reputation of creating the best environment for an international business hotel thanks to its continuing efforts at renovation of facilities, improvement in service areas, recruitment and training of employees and expansion to the dining and catering businesses.
The Plaza Hotel has recently reopened after renovation as a boutique business hotel under the theme “creative inheritance and development.” The newly enhanced hotel features aesthetic interior designs, nearly perfect personalized customer service, and ultimate convenience for conducting international business. Ideally located in the heart of downtown Seoul, the Plaza is the premier choice for even the most discerning business travelers who pursue both style and convenience.
The hotel’s logo design represents the image of a link that weaves together the past and present, and the three knots represent the links of past heritage, present, and future development. The gaps between the knots mean that a creative break-through in development has been made and the links are now new-dimensional rather than in a sequence.
The color purple symbolizes the “prestige” and “dignity” of the Plaza as Korea’s most exclusive hotel, while reflecting the trendiest design concept of the hotel. The logo design best represents the Plaza’s original and future-oriented values that are dedicated to continued development, rather than being content to remain unchanged through the passage of time.
Located in the lobby, the Concierge is dedicated to providing extensive services in various fields to ensure that guests experience the most comfortable, convenient, and enjoyable stay. Ranging from tourism, hotel, restaurants, flights and transportation, to entertainment and shopping, and professional secretarial services, the Concierge provides a wealth of information and also helps to make reservations and recommendations that meet the specific needs of its guests.
Providing timely and accurate information with warm hospitality, the Concierge enables travelers to enjoy an unforgettable experience during their stay. The operating hours are from 6:30 to 22:00 on Monday to Sunday.
