Last week, the Spring/Summer 2017 season of Seoul Fashion Week kicked off with bang that included model-laden music festivals and more. However, because my job has been taking over my life, there is only so much energy I could devote to Fashion Week this season…but I tried to make it work.

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!

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.

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to pass by the Kiehl’s Nature + the City exhibit as I was headed to lunch with Lauren. It was held in FIFTY FIFTY, an exhibition space tucked into a side street near Garosugil.

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.

Last week, my friend Star and I decided to go to the Chanel pop up store which was built up in Gangnam in a flurry of steel and colorful panels. We had to go online and apply for a date and time to enter the store a week beforehand, and we only got the address 24 hours in advance. So, of course, the anticipation was high.

For the third and final installment of my Four Seasons Seoul series, I’ll talk about the facilities in the hotel: during my stay I visited the spa, the pool and the fitness center. I didn’t spend as much time taking care of myself as I did eating and drinking everything in sight, but I did enough to be able to write a little bit…

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!

So twenty-five minutes after I left work, my taxi arrived at the Four Seasons and I walked into…sleekness.
