Four Seasons Hotel Seoul has maintained its Forbes Five Star status for the fourth consecutive year, as announced by Forbes Travel Guide 2023 on February 15, 2023. The Hotel, which stands tall with 29 glittering stories in the heart of Seoul, was recognized for its exceptional services, sophisticated features, and “sensuous interior” by anonymous professional inspectors. The Spa also maintained its status with a Four Star rating, making it the only spa in Korea with a seven-year run of Forbes-rated spas.

Forbes Travel Guide has been assisting discerning travellers in choosing the best experiences worldwide for more than 60 years, making it the only independent, global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants, and spas. Inspectors assess properties based on 900 objective standards and define Five Star properties as “outstanding, often iconic properties with virtually flawless service and amazing facilities."

Since opening in 2015, Four Seasons Hotel Seoul has become Korea's leading luxury escape, providing world-class services, high-tech conveniences, and a heartfelt connection to Asia's bustling metropolis. Classic Korean nature motifs and modern aesthetics adorn the décor, reflecting the surrounding mountain backdrop and views of Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung Palaces. The Spa offers a decadent Korean sauna with cold, warm, and hot baths, all decorated with 18-carat gold tiles, signature treatments, and a picturesque sunlit pool with a juice bar.

The Hotel features eight distinct restaurants and bars, including award-winning Yu Yuan and the secret speakeasy Charles H., ranked as the Best Bar in Korea and one of the Asia's 50 Best Bars. The Hotel’s 196 square metres (23,638 square feet) of light-filled function space includes five ballrooms for up to 800 guests, two executive boardrooms, and a stunning 15th-floor Garden Terrace. Additionally, the Hotel offers the latest virtual technology for cutting-edge hybrid events.
