New Sheraton To Open In Seoul



Veteran Hotel Chain Boosts City’s Top Accommodation Facilities

Major hotel chain Sheraton is to open a new facility in Seoul this September 16th. Dubbed Sheraton Seoul D Cube City, the hotel offers convenient access to major transport services, abundant business and entertainment options in the immediate vicinity, and the standard of quality service and furnishings guests have come to expect of the Sheraton chain.

The new venue takes its name from the new D Cube City megacomplex, set to open in August, of which it will be an integral part. Located in Sindorim near one of Seoul’s major subway stations, D Cube City will comprise not only major business hotels like the Sheraton Seoul, but also a department store and a multitude of brand stores and restaurants. The site is already home to Technomart, one of Seoul’s major electronic malls, and a cinema complex. The Sindorim area also provides an array of restaurants and entertainment venues, making it an ideal base for business and leisure travelers.

The new Sheraton Seoul is also ideally-placed within the city, being only 15km from Gimpo International Airport and less than an hour from Incheon International Airport. Its Sindorim location places it roughly equidistant from the major business areas north and south of Seoul’s Han River, both easily accessed from Sindorim Subway Station Lines 1 & 2.

Internally, the super-deluxe grade hotel covers a space of 48,357m², which contains 269 guest rooms and 12 meeting rooms. The meeting rooms include the Grand Ballroom, able to seat up to 900 persons, two boardrooms, and several other meeting rooms for functions involving anywhere between 15 and 140 attendees. Other on-site facilities include a fitness center, heated pool, spa, business center and club lounge.

Sheraton is no stranger to Seoul’s business hotel industry, with the Sheraton Grande Walkerhill and W Seoul-Walkerhill complex having opened in 2004. The addition of the Sheraton Seoul D Cube City forms part of Seoul’s ongoing efforts to expand its meetings industry infrastructure as a rapidly-growing convention city, now in the top 5 of all convention cities worldwide.
