Where to Stay
Intercontinental Hotel is Near the COEX http://kr.seoul-grand.intercontinental.com/
Last but not least, any suggestions of decent hotels/accomodation would be extremely helpful! We are particularly looking for someplace
- convenient to airports
Handling for Mark's own airplane http://www.kbas.com/
- convenient for local businesses
- appropriate to host a business breakfast
- well-wired (i.e, broadband!)
You can choose either of the downtown area or Kangnam area. The downtown area is easier to access the government, while Kangnam area is better to contact the technology companies and technology people. For downtown area my recommendation is:
Lotte hotel Seoul http://www.lottehotel.co.kr/english/grand/company/company_index.jsp (Note that there are two Lotte hotels in Seoul. This is the Lotte Hotel Seoul in sogong-dong, NOT the Lotte hotel in Jamsil).
For Kangnam area:
JW Marriot Seoul http://www.jw-marriott.co.kr/ (Sorry I couldn't find English page)
COEX Intercontinental http://seoul-coex.intercontinental.com
Grand Intercontinental http://seoul-grand.intercontinental.com (There are two Intercontinental hotels in the COEX area. No much difference between the two)
