Since we were spending our 4-year anniversary in Seoul, I decided to book us in a hotel I knew Mrs. Selfish would love: the Westin Chosun. After staying at the Westin Munich and the Westin Bangkok, Mrs. Selfish and I were solidly in the Westin camp, thanks largely due to their “heavenly bed.”
The Westin Chosun was a great pick. Not only did it match the Westin brand (even maintaining the Westin smell, which is kind of creepy), but the location is extremely convenient. It’s within walking distance of many of Seoul’s historic sites, and only a short metro ride away from Gangnum and other areas.
It also gave me an opportunity to take advantage of Starwood’s buy 4-nights, get 1-night free redemption policy. The Westin Chosun is a category 5 hotel, so booking a room cost us 48,000 SPG points.
Getting There & Check-In
Getting to the Westin from Incheon Airport was a very smooth process, thanks to the airport limousine bus service, which departs from bus stop 4B/11A. Mrs. Selfish and I purchased two tickets on the bus for about 15,000 won each (around $14.50), and only had to wait 5 minutes. An hour later, we arrived at the Westin!
