After a “quick” 15 hour flight from ATL-ICN, decided to take a bus from the Airport to a drop off near the hotel. This was pretty easy and was able to buy a ticket via a machine right outside the bus terminal at the airport. There was a line to talk to a person and use a credit card, but I already got some cash out via an ATM and was able to buy a ticket using cash from a machine. The bad thing is this was almost a 2 hour bus ride on a Friday night. (usually 80 minutes) The hardest part was being dropped off and then trying to figure out which direction the hotel was. But it was only about a 5 minute walk from that station.
This hotel runs around $150 a night. Its a category 3 hotel with Marriott. I had some Cat 1-4 certificates expiring this year so I decided to use one of them at this hotel. Not the best value redemption, but I was on a mileage run so I decided to burn it here.
The overall location was great. While I didn’t have much time here, there was plenty to walk around and see.
Upon leaving, I ended up taking a cheap taxi to Seoul Station to catch the express train. I walked past Seoul Station about 5x the night before while wondering around, but didn’t want to wonder around while trying to get to the airport.
Overall this was a great stay. An upgrade and great lounge for a platinum member always helps that.
