South Korea is undoubtedly going to be one of the hottest travel destinations of 2018, with the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games happening in February. Just in time for spectators wanting to get in on the action, Le Meridien Seoul has opened the doors of its sleek property. As the newest hotel from the Parisian hospitaly brand, the 226-room luxury hotel is located on Bongeunsa-ro, an upscale neighborhood in Gangham. Combining Le Meridien’s iconic French style and traditional and modern Korean design, the hotel was brought to life by David Collins Studio.
Mid-century inspired furniture, along with velvet, marble and leather textures, grace the hotel’s interiors, making for a rich and illustrious visual experience for each guest. Each guest room features incredible views of the city, as well as local artwork and custom oak flooring. For an even more luxurious experience, book your stay in the Presidential Suite. This incredible duplex-style suite boasts six bedrooms, a terrace and outdoor dining area and a spacious kitchen.
But perhaps our favorite part of the hotel is downstairs at the M Contemporary Art Center. The expansive 12,500-square-foot space is made up of seven exhibition venues and includes an LED media facade that features works by some of the hottest new artists. Le Meridien Seoul brings modern luxury to South Korea, and this stunning new hotel must be seen to be believed.
