The Luxury Collection, part of Marriott Bonvoy's 30-brand portfolio, is celebrating its South Korean debut with the opening of Josun Palace, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Seoul Gangnam.

Josun Palace is inspired by the legacy of Korea's first luxury hotel, the Chosun Hotel, built in 1914. Located just steps away from shopping and entertainment venues, the hotel offers breathtaking views of Seoul and features a heritage-inspired design. It has 254 rooms and suites and is equipped with the latest amenities for optimum comfort. 

Josun Palace offers guests five on-site dining options as well as custom-designed function rooms and event facilities, including the Grand Hall, which features an extra-large multimedia wall and the latest audio-visual facilities. Josun Palace's Josun Wellness Club features a heated indoor pool and a terrace with panoramic views of the Gangnam skyline. Guests can enjoy a fully equipped fitness center with the latest cardio and resistance training equipment and a luxurious club sauna.

Josun Palace adheres to Marriott International's commitment to cleanliness and has installed automatic UV-C sterilization devices in all rooms. Guests also have the ability to request hotel services via their smart devices as well as their in-room smart TVs. A robot butler is also available 24/7 to deliver hotel amenities and convenience items to guests.

We are delighted to mark the milestone in the expansion of our Luxury Collection brand in South Korea with the opening of Josun Palace, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Seoul Gangnam. The opening of our latest jewel further diversifies our exciting collection of hotels in South Korea, offering unique experiences to our discerning guests.
