LEED Gold Certified JW Marriott Hotel Opens in Seoul

Feb 11, 2014


Marriott has expanded in South Korea with the opening of the 170-room JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul. 
The hotel is the second JW Marriott to open in Seoul and the first hotel in the city to receive LEED Gold certification. Featuring an urban façade and an interior that exudes elegance, warm luxury, and minimalist sophistication, the property is the first international luxury business hotel in Dongdaemun.



“With every new JW Marriott property, we challenge ourselves to go above and beyond, and opening the first LEED Gold certified hotel in Seoul is a major accomplishment for the brand,” says Mitzi Gaskins, vice president and global brand manager for JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts. “Not only is respecting and preserving the environment important to us, it is important to our guests, and we’re excited to bring that to life in Seoul.”

Set in the city’s fashion district, the hotel boasts views of the historical Dongdaemun, or East Gate—one of Seoul’s eight historical gates. Among the property highlights are BLT Steak; Tavolo 24, a casual all-day dining restaurant with live cooking stations; The Lounge; Seoul Baking Company, which serves cakes and pastries from its open kitchen; and the rooftop Griffin Bar.

The hotel offers 10,570 square feet of meeting space and a grand ballroom that can accommodate up to 750 guests, as well as Seoul's first ultra-high-definition 98-screen media wall.
