Privy+ Perk: Travel in Gangnam Style at the Grand Hyatt Seoul

By Privy Editor

Grand Hyatt Seoul

It’s Gangnam Style meets Park Avenue at this luxe hotspot right in the heart of Seoul’s bustling metropolis. Situated between Gangnam and Byeongdong, two cities known for their downtown shopping district’s and ultra-glam nightlife, this elegant property is surrounded by a city scene that gives you the best of both worlds--street food stands selling delicious comfort food right in front of the finest, 5-star restaurants in Seoul.

It’s the Grand Hyatt Hotel, one of the luxury hotels we have partnered with in our Privy+ Privilege Program. With Privy+, members gain access to deeply, discounted corporate rates at a highly curated selection of hotels around the world.

Now, here’s our featured Privy+ perk of the week: The elegant Grand Hyatt Seoul

Just minutes from the city’s superior subway system, this luxury Hyatt property attracts global professionals, film stars and politicos, and international scenesters who want 5-star luxury and comfort. All of the hotel’s 601 luxury rooms and suites are equipped with hi-speed wireless, and offer fantastic views over Mount Namsan and the Han River--a perfect sight to wake up to and ease into your day.

For professionals on business travel, the Hyatt has personal meeting planners to assist you with your VIP business deal, and extensive and fully-equipped meeting and event facilities. But for grand-scale conventions and meetings, the Grand Ballroom is the way to go--seating up to 1,000 guests for banquets, and 1,500 guests for cocktails--and and outfitted with the latest technology, including satellite imaging system that provides seamless face-to-face communication.

For those of you who don’t like travel to put a wrench in your fitness regime, the Grand Hyatt is the place to stay: the hotel holds one of the city’s largest recreation centers, Club Olympus, which actually holds an ice skating rink, tennis and squash courts, a gymnasium, and a spa that offers both traditional Korean massage and more modern stone massage techniques. The stunning indoor and outdoor pool with views looking over the city and Mt. Namsan, was labeled one of the five best swimming pools in the world by CNN Travel. The hotel offers a plethora of dining options--with 11 restaurants for every palate, but our pick is the Weekend Champagne Brunch at the Paris Grille--you can’t go wrong with fresh-made pancakes and champagne.

Insider Tip: AIf you suffer from severe allergies, ask for one of the hotel’s “Pure” rooms, an hypo-allergenic guestroom with filtration systems to reduce airborne particles and minimize irritants.

Room to Book: The Grand Suite King has floor-to-ceiling windows and offers the best views of the Han River and the breathtaking Mount Namsan.
