Park Hyatt Busan | Top | Review
The setup is similar to the Park Hyatt sibling in Seoul – a dedicated tower, a handful of rooms on each floor, and friendly, slightly informal service. Opened in 2013. The interior design is great, creating a warm, relaxed and fairly intimate ambiance. Love the wooden guest room floors, too. [last visited: 2014]

Opened in late 2012 as part of the IFC complex. Service is a bit less consistent than what you'd get at the Park Hyatt Soul, and the attention to detail is subpar at times. But if you are entitled to use the Executive Lounge on the 37th floor, they'll do a great job of making sure you get a swift check-in and they keeping good track of your needs when you're in the lounge to relax or work. Rooms are nice, especially when overlooking the river, though a bit bland on the interior design front. Very decent spa and fitness center. A pretty good choice, especially if you want to be closer to the Hongdae area. [last visited: 2014]

Hyatt Regency Incheon | Mid
A classic airport Hyatt. The breakfast is really quite good and the facilities are decent. A shuttle takes you from and to the terminal and when it doesn't run late at night, it's semi-possible to walk from the Incheon station terminal to the hotel if you have to (I've done it a few times).

Love the service. Friendly, relaxed, feels like coming back to a family property of sorts. Once you become a regular guest the ground floor staff will whisk you right up to your floor with in-room check-in done in a split-second. Small and lovely relaxation area featuring an onsen-hot plunge pool. Located in Gangnam right next to Coex and the Samseong subway station. An absolute favorite of mine. [last visited: 2014]
