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).
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!
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.
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…
After being bogged down by sickness and tons of work, I’m finally able to post here for you all, and, boy, is this one a doozy! This post — or these posts…I haven’t quite decided yet — are going to be an undertaking just because I saw and did a good bit!
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.”
Two weeks from yesterday (Friday the 4th), I will be in Tokyo celebrating my birthday weekend at the Grand Hyatt (which, of course, I’ll write about after I return). Making these plans got me thinking about the places I still want to stay at here in South Korea, and, really, I’ve been thinking about this since mylaststaycationadventures.
