A couple of weekends ago my running partner Star, of 87pages fame, invited me and a few other bloggers to an event being hosted at the Sool Gallery (전통주 갤러리) in Insadong. I’d gone with my dude a while ago, on Star’s recommendation, and we had thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, so I was looking forward to another trip.

A couple of days ago, I received a question on one of my Instagram photos from fellow Seoulite Joni Els asking me this:

“What do you think your best ‘fancy hotel in Korea’ experience has been? …[I have] birthday plans so [I] want to have a local, treat yo’self birthday weekend.”

My short answer was pretty immediate, but it did have me thinking about the places I’ve stayed at thus far and how I would rank them. So, without further ado, here is my ranking of the lux hotels I’ve stayed at in Seoul (so far).

Hello, everyone! Recently there was a three-day weekend here in Korea, and I took advantage of the extra day to finally stay at the Grand Hyatt in Seoul!

Yes, after three (!) months of blog silence, I’ve returned! I’d been prepping for a new big job and new (not-so-big) apartment, and it took up most of my time and energy. HOWEVER, in this three-month span, I managed to squeeze in not one, not two, but *three* lux staycations, and my first one was at the Hyatt Regency on the gorgeous Jeju Island!

Just down the street from the Nature + the City event was 541Lab, a boutique that houses Hiphoper, an urban fashion line, and just happens to also house a cafe.

On May 25th the Conrad Hotel in Seoul opened its anticipated outdoor bar/restaurant called VVertigo (yes, with two V’s, if you follow the SNS adverts). If you all have read my Lux Staycation entries then you know that I adore this hotel. So for my friend Star’s birthday, we decided to take a trip to VVertigo and see if this newcomer lived up to the hype.

So, not only does the Four Seasons hotel in Seoul have stellar accommodations, but they also have great restaurants, too! In addition to the Executive Lounge, I also enjoyed lunch and dinner at Boccalino and Kioku restaurants, respectively. I’ll talk about all three in this post!

Finally! After a month of putting it off, the time has finally come…for me to talk about my “epic” 38-hour trip to Tokyo, Japan, for my birthday and for Tokyo Fashion Week.

So, I will talk about my trip to Tokyo eventually, but in the meantime I figured that make a post with what I have now, so…I stayed at the Grand Hyatt in Roppongi Hills!

After the Byungmun Seo show a couple of Fridays ago, my blogger friend Star (also of YouTube fame) and I decided to go out and get drinks. After asking for my recommendation, I said, “Well, the Four Seasons has a guest bartender from San Francisco tonight.”
