Following the rapid growth in Korea, the Westin Chosun established itself as the center of social, political and cultural engagements in Korea.
Within the last few years, the Westin Chosun Hotel has made continuous developments in staff training, customer services and investment in facilities, obtaining the titles of “One of the Top 100 Hotels in the World” by the renowned financial magazine Institutional Investor, and “The Best Hotel in Seoul” in ASIA Money.
The Westin Chosun is located in the heart of the business and shopping districts of Seoul, which makes it an ideal accommodation for business travelers, and also tourists. The hotel is only minutes away from major tourist attractions such as ancient palaces, Myeong-dong and Insa-dong.
