In recent years, Seoul has seen a dramatic increase in the number of accommodations offered throughout the city. With so many choices, finding the right place to stay can seem daunting to tourists, business travelers and even expats. For those seeking opulence without compromising location, Conrad Seoul, the luxury brand of Hilton Worldwide, is the perfect choice.
Although not a tourist, I occasionally treat myself to a staycation in the city- an opportunity to escape the monotony of everyday life and to recharge my batteries. After a recent chaotic week of work and ridiculously long hours, I knew one was in order and the rave reviews of the Conrad had me curious. As I took the short drive from the center of the city toward the Yeouido business district, the mere sight of the hotel's gleaming black exterior towering over the Han River put me at ease.
