Need a more upscale poolside experience? The W Hotel’s indoor spa features a swimming pool, fitness center, bathing pools, and 50 kinds of body and facial spa treatments. Also, the hotel’s outdoor pool River Park is a virtual reduction of a full-on waterpark, equipped with two kiddie slides, a hot tub, and a large and bright turquoise pool.

Although most Seoul hotels stay away from Korean cuisine, W and its sister hotel Sheraton Grande Walkerhill provide the refined, authentic cuisine of Korea at Ondal and Myongwolgwan.
The Sheraton Walkerhill Hotel Duty Free store carries famous clothing brands, fashion, and cosmetics items as well as a high-end jewelry collection.
The indoor pool offers a splendid view of the city and river, and the hotel compound itself is nestled on Mt. Achasan overlooking the beautiful Hangang River.
